If there’s ever been a case of foot in the mouth disease, this may be it.
A shuttle company is roundly being blasted for an offensive promotional email stating “You won’t feel like you’re in China when you’re on our buses.”
Suburban Express sent the email to advertise its shuttle service between the University of Illinois and various Chicago suburbs offered during the campus’ Christmas break, reported the Chicago Tribune
The ad proclaimed one of the benefits of riding its buses is “passengers like you.”
A second email meant as an apology appeared to only dig the company into a deeper hole.
