Can We Just Talk About The Tweet The Official Government Of Pakistan Account Just Deleted
The official Twitter account of the Government of Pakistan posted and then quickly deleted this image.
Obviously, even if it was well-intentioned, sending a message like this to the people of a third-world country like Pakistan? Seriously? And that too the GOVERNMENT of said third-world country is tweeting it out? That is a yikes. A big big yikes.
Clearly, since the tweet was taken off so suddenly, we’re assuming that they realized that it was a pretty shitty thing to say given the extremely problematic meaning.
Also, just in case you wondering we haven’t been able to confirm whether or not Bill Gates actually said this in the first place, lol.
That kind of power needs to be regulated and taken seriously especially when it is being watched by the millions of Pakistans probably confused the fuck out at the quote in the first place.
we can laugh about it a little bit because let’s face it, the blunder is quite funny especially considering that it is not completely unexpected. But we should also get serious about the fact that we were not completely surprised by it – and THAT is truly a very concerning thing for us and for the future of our nation.
