The Best of the "Ask JP Morgan" Twitter Fiasco
"As a young sociopath, how can I succeed in finance?"
I do wonder what JP Morgan was thinking when -- fresh off a record $13 billion dollar fine for a slew of illegal activities -- they took to Twitter to ask this question:
What career advice would you ask a leading exec at a global firm? Tweet a Q using #AskJPM
As you can imagine, the Twittersphere went berserk and berated the mega-bank with more colorful insults then they could handle. Here's a small sampling:
- How much blood do your executives consume on a monthly basis? #AskJPM
- I have Mortgage Fraud, Market Manipulation, Credit Card Abuse, Libor Rigging and Predatory Lending AM I DIVERSIFIED? #AskJPM
- At what number of Billions of Dollars in fines will it no longer be profitable to run your criminal enterprise #AskJPM
- Do you have a secret jail in your offices so your executives get at least one chance to see the inside of one? #AskJPM
The results were like watching a high-speed train wreck -- so much so that they had to cancel the event...
Have a look at some of the highlights, read by American Greed's Stacy Keach...and a puppet for extra hilarity.
