It’s clearly not the best time to be working in the Google PR department. In response to a reporter’s email about the recent protests against its private shuttles, a Google PR rep accidentally replied all with a single, “ugh…” (h/t to Sam Biddle at Valleywag)
Here’s the email, which was sent by Mission Local reporter Courtney Quirin:
This tragically hilarious faux pas says a lot about the Google PR team’s state of mind. Google’s communications is notoriously tight lipped even at the best of times. One can imagine they’re feeling a bit under siege at the moment. For now, we can enjoy this rare slip up, even though the meekly uttered ‘ugh…’ probably inspires more sympathy than hilarity.
