SHOCKER: The Company KITCHENAID Just Sent Out A VERY INSENSITIVE TWEET . . . About President Obama’s DEAD GRANDMOTHER!! (Should They Be BOYCOTTED)

: KitchenAid, makers of dishwashers and other home appliances, now has a big social media mess to clean up.

During Wednesday night's presidential debate, Barack Obama credited his tenacious grandmother who helped raise him and passed away three days before he was elected president.

Moments later, @KitchenAidUSA, the company's official Twitter account, sent this:

"Obamas gma even knew it was going 2 b bad! 'She died 3 days b4 he became president'."

The insensitive tweet not only went to the company's 25,000 followers, but also included a hashtag to make it a part of NBC News' social debate conversation.

They have since apologized, but it DOESN'T SEEM LIKE that's enough.

Here are a few contact people over at Kitchenaid's parent company Whirlpool:

It's amazing how this post only has 10,000 views, but Amber Rose's post has 96,000. Our nation and our people are in turmoil. The priorities are all messed up!!

Oh Imma write their asses! Punks! I will never buy another kitchenaid product and they are officially boycotted. They aren't the only products on the market and that shyt was horrible thing to say about someone's grandmother. That man's grandparents loved him very much! They raised that man without prejudice or malice. I don't care what the man's policies are or what he believes you don't talk about his grandmama like that!

That's highly disrespectful. No matter how they feel about him that woman should be able to RIP. People have no more respect. And that's because they dont respect themselves because we all have grandmothers be it thier alive or not. You don't.disrespect elders and most certainly not the dead. I'm glad I was raised with sense. Thank GOD!

He is white you brainwashed coons. This wos the most viewed presidential debate in hisstory not JFK or even Clintons but the most pointless and unknowledgable one howeva all blacks see is theirselves. Their IMAGE.. they did not read shit or even boycott for his birth certficate becos he wos brown in color. Now wot if that was Osama ? Brown makes you HUEMAN not African,, Obama wos raised by whited. Blacks need for a LEADER of man Is wot gone lead to blaming the " so called black man " anyway. Go DEEPER YOU SLAVES IS EASY

Lol at onlyloveblackppl you are a sad case. Do a lot of blacks have the Willie lynch syndrome? Yes!!!! But who are you to down us when damn near everything that makes this world function was created by us and 98% of the things that weren't actually were bc "the white man" made claim on it bc blacks weren't considered citizens. If he don't help his brother so effin what that's all you see maybe just maybe there's a valid reason behind it you said nothing about his sister yea she's doing exceptionally well I could go in on you but I refuse to entertain this fuckery any longer. Btw seeing you have this hate for us Don't use an air conditioner, shampoo, cell phone, clothes dryer, door knob, elevator, Fire extinguisher, dust pan, Guitar, hair brush, Key chain, mop, mailbox, refrigerator, peanut butter, Stove, don't let your dr use a stethoscope on you, Take your curtains off the rod, motor, lawn mower oh he'll just jump off a building bc the medical instruments that were used to bring you in this world BLACK BLACK BLACK ALL BLACKS
