Earlier today the AJC sent out and quickly deleted a rather shocking tweet:
The AJC moments ago apologized:
The AJC apologizes for & deeply regrets the tweet that was posted earlier today. We are working to address this situation internally.

I hope this puts the incident to rest and nobody is fired over this. It was offensive to be sure but clearly an attempt at humor that went horribly wrong.
All I ask is that the folks at the AJC go easy on my colleagues should one of them make a poor attempt at humor in the future.
