Chick-Fil-A got busted today apparently using a fake “hours new” Facebook account defending it’s recent announcements about discontinuing use of Muppet toy give-aways.
Apparently, in a back and forth on Facebook it was revealed that “Abby” – defender of all things Chick-Fil-A – was a brand new Facebook account and her face pic was a stock photo from shutterstock.com.
Gizmodo points to what may be a huge Facebook fail by Chick-Fil-A:
“Chick-fil-A claimed the toys were pulled because of a “possible safety issue”. That, of course, is a complete lie. A lie that they’re propagating with fake Facebook accounts of Chick-fil-a sympathists. Yep, Chick-fil-A is still stuck in its own reality and is doubling down on its lie. Instead of owning up to the fact that The Jim Henson Company stopped doing business with them because they’re overrun with bigots, the chicken sandwich company is making fake Facebook accounts to defend its honor on the social network. How do we know the accounts are fake? Just check out this back and forth on Chick-fil-A’s Facebook page between real, breathing people and “Abby Farle”, a Facebook account that was made 8 hours ago by a chicken PR flack with a stock image of a teenage girl as her profile picture.”
