Cheerios Stumble on Social Media With Branded Prince Tribute

Cheerios - Prince tribute

Today with the shocking death of Prince, the world lost one of the most original and popular musicians of our generation. And of course, a few brands decided this was the perfect time to “join the conversation on social media” and connect themselves with the moment in history.

One example of note was Cheerios, which posted an image to Twitter featuring the phrase ‘Rest in Peace’ with a Cheerio standing in for the dot in the “i”.

The tweet has since been deleted, but ironically thanks to the power of social media it will live on an as an example of “what not to do.”
