Victorian Taxis Throws More Poo At The Fan, Tweets About Remembrance Day

Victorian Taxis have piggybacked off Remembrance Day to remind people that veterans catch taxis, because the whole #YourTaxis debacle wasn’t enough of a PR disaster.

This week the Victorian Taxi Association (VTA) decided to start a discussion about people’s taxi stories, which understandably didn’t get the response the VTA was expecting but what we were all thinking.

To follow from this hashtag mess, the Your Taxis twitter account tweeted this yesterday:

The tweet has since been deleted, but the damage was done:

The VTA released a statement and a tweet apologising for the mistake “The Victorian Taxi Association has apologised unreservedly for a tweet sent on behalf of the YourTaxis campaign that it does not believe displayed the appropriate level of respect to Australian servicemen and women and their families.

“The tweet was sent on the official @yourtaxis Twitter handle by an external supplier but the VTA accepts that it should have been reviewed and vetoed by its own staff. In order to minimise any unintended offence, the tweet in question was deleted immediately.”

But, as ABC Local Radio journalist Mark Colvin pointed out:

Tho hole just keeps getting bigger for Victorian taxis.
