Proof Read Everything

Mistakes happen. We are all not perfect. However, whoever was the PR Person for a Dunkin in Rhode Island sure has some explaining to do. Earlier this week, Dunkin’ celebrated 30 years at one of their stores in Cranston, Rhode Island .  On Wednesday the store was offering the first 100 guests free coffee for a YEAR. But a post on Facebook that hyped the promotion said it was only open to: “White Cranston residents.” Apparently a Dunkin in White Plains, NY, did a similar promotion, and whoever copy and pasted the post, didn’t proof read. Check out the typo below.

A local Dunkin’ giveaway sparked controversy on Wednesday when a Facebook post mistakenly only invited one type of customer: white.https://t.co/zjuJkX5JJ7
