Tonight in ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME…
Sarah Jane Sacchetti, the head of communications for anonymous libel app Secret (who previously held the same job at teen suicide encourager, Formspring) has responded to my post about how her boss doesn’t care if teens kill themselves because of their app.
Did she express any concern for Secret’s users?
Did she pledge that the company will take steps to protect teenagers from cyberbullying?
Rather — and I swear I’m not making this up — Sacchetti complained that she is “always taken aback when people write horrible things without talking to the people they target”.
Again, this is the head of marketing for AN APP WHICH ALLOWS PEOPLE TO WRITE HORRIBLE THINGS WITHOUT TALKING TO THE PEOPLE THEY TARGET.
Their investors must be just glowing with pride tonight.
UPDATE: Sacchetti apologizes.
