Oops! EPA Tweets Link to Download Kim Kardashian's App
The EPA's Water Office accidentally sent out an advertisement for Kardashian's virtual video game
It appears that even the federal government keeps up with the Kardashians.
“I’m now a C-List celebrity in Kim Kardashian: Hollywood,” the now deleted Tweet read. “Come join me and become famous too by playing on iPhone!”
The app, released June 25, is already on track to rake in $200 million. Playing is free, but users can pay to climb the ranks of Los Angeles society – though we have a feeling “purchasing K stars” isn’t exactly a line in the EPA’s budget.
At least Glu Games, the creator of the app, is supporting the EPA’s dream of making it big, Tweeting, “Keep at it @EPAwater, you’ll get there. #AList #WillowPapeIsTheWorst #KimKardashianGame”
And the water office isn’t ashamed about wanting Mrs. Kanye West‘s luxurious life.
“Whoops our bad. Sorry about tweet. Upside – more attention for the Office of Water (water.epa.gov), thanks @KimKardashian,” the account Tweeted on Tuesday.
Still, a spokeswoman who doesn’t sound like a Keeping Up with the Kardashians fan, took a more serious tone while explaining the gaffe.
“An EPA fellow inadvertently triggered an auto-generated tweet. She regrets the errors and has been advised on the sensitivities of using social media,” she said in a statement to USA Today.
Considering that Kardashian has broken Instagram records and basically invented the butt selfie, she could probably teach the ill-fated employee a thing or two about Twitter. From Calabasas to the Hamptons, it’s Kim’s world: We’re just living in the virtual version of it.
