New Zealand police’s inappropriate tweet is really quite something


Police and memes are often a clumsy mixture at best.

While we’ll admit our appreciation for their animal posts, New Zealand Police have really outdone themselves with an errant tweet on Monday. 

The tweet is titled, “When we have to tell someone their family member has died in a crash,” and it’s accompanied with a GIF of The Office’s Michael Scott saying “This is the worst!” 

It’s pretty bad, unless you’re a fan of gallows humour.

Why you’d use Twitter’s GIF function on the subject of informing a family member is beyond us, but the tweet was shortly deleted after posting. 

Not before people saw it, though. 

New Zealand Police tweeted an apology shortly after, saying that its earlier post was “wrong & insensitive.” Never tweet folks. Never tweet.
