A French bank, Caisse d’Epargne, posted a photo of an unfortunate squirrel hanging upside down by his testicles on a bird feeder. The picture was posted on the bank’s Facebook page with the caption “Because accidents don’t just happen to others, insurance will also cover you for any temporary injuries.”
Bank followers thought the page was hacked, but later realized that it was indeed posted by Caisse d’Epargne.
“It’s absolutely despicable to use this for publicity. As a customer I completely disapprove. Shame on you,” said one disgusted customer.
The bank later pulled the photo of its page and apologized saying, “We wanted to make use of the social networks but we made a mistake. It was a communication error. We’ve hurt Facebook followers and potential customers and we regret it.”
