Headline of the Day: “PayPerPost: Wasting Investor Money While Offending Native Americans”

Why bother gilding the lily? Michael Arrington at TechCrunch says all that needs to be said:

Ah, PayPerPost. The controversial Florida-based startup that is leading the effort to tarnish the blogosphere makes another PR blunder. And this one’s a whopper. The company has been chronicling their startup days on a video blog called RockStartup. There have been some embarrassments before with the video blog – such as when a viewer noticed that the company had purchased $700 chairs for employees with investor capital and then yelled at a painter for standing on one (CEO Ted Murphy… later said the chairs were purchased used). But the most recent episode is where the company really takes the cake. All employees of the company were taken on an all-expenses-paid trip to Club Med, where as far as I can tell they spent their time getting drunk and dressing up as Native Americans, complete with lots of red face and body paint.

Yeah, making fun of the victims of genocide. Now that’s funny.
