You mean a fake account with a checkmark?

Who would have guessed that would happen?

Since WHAT?

BustinJiber , (edited )

"Since overthrow of President Jacobo Arbenz of Guatemala in 1954 in a US-backed coup in support of the United Fruit Company (now Chiquita Banana)." From Google.

Also
Chiquita to plead guilty to ties with terrorists 2007

The company has long history of evil.

I went on a walking tour in Bogota years back and the tour guide made sure to let us know never to eat Chiquita bananas because of this

resulting in the deaths of 47 to 2000 people

Kinda wide margin there

AaronAllBlacks ,

I thin kit's in the ballpark of 3 to 75,000

ChickenLadyLovesLife ,

Kinda weird that 47 deaths would seem like "is that all?"

Emerald ,

I can't remember if I killed one person with my car yesterday or if it was 42 people

Seems a bit intentional:

General Cortés Vargas, who commanded the troops during the massacre, took responsibility for 47 casualties. In reality, the exact number of casualties has never been confirmed. Herrera Soto, co-author of a comprehensive and detailed study of the 1928 strike, has put together various estimates given by contemporaries and historians, ranging from 47 to as high as 2,000.[1] According to Congressman Jorge Eliécer Gaitán, the killed strikers were thrown into the sea.[1] Other sources claim that the bodies were buried in mass graves.[2]

Thats almost 100 years ago, no one responsible for that is working for that company anymore. I'm usually supportive of boycotting companies, but that seems pointlessly petty

Khrux ,

In March 2007 Chiquita Brands pleaded guilty in a United States Federal court to aiding and abetting a terrorist organization, when it admitted to the payment of more than $1.7 million to the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia (AUC), a group that the United States has labeled a terrorist organization since 2001.

The company that is willing to commit terrible crimes including murder is still the same company. They have not been adequately punished for their various crimes against humanity. The punishment for these crimes should have been large enough that the company wouldn't exist today, not just a small fine.

My favorite tweet from that first day of all hell breaking loose when you could buy the check mark was that Tesla account that said a second Tesla has hit the world trade center

Edit- oh and how can we forget the tweet about free insulin that did massive damage to that company's stocks

twei ,

You're thinking about this and this

Sabre363 ,

The irony of posting links to Reddit while talking about Twitter on Lemmy.

twei ,

I thought about that and came

to the conclusion, that it's the best way to post because it credits the guy who actually found and sort-of archived it instead of just reposting the images

Sabre363 ,

It was a good way to do it, just found it amusing

onion ,

I just wish people would learn to crop their shit

Absolutely hilarious and completely predictable 🤦‍♂️

It was hilarious seeing companies scrambling to do damage control and showing their full ass in the process!
