Boners BBQ in Atlanta Is Awarded "Worse Use of Social Media 2012" Award
While perusing the interwebs yesterday, I came across a disturbing story about a restaurant in Atlanta called Boners BBQ.
I'll say that one more time -- BONERS BBQ.
And their slogan is worse than the name. Wanna take a guess at what it is? Try "Put a Little South in Your Mouth".
As a completely immature 32 year old, I think the name and the slogan are hilarious and all, but I still wouldn't eat there. More then likely I would just snicker every time I drove by until it was no longer funny in which case I would probably say, "Wow. I can't believe that place is still in business" and then the sad day would come when Boners shut their doors and the inevitable "it looks like Boners has gone limp" comment would have to be made.
Anyways, onto the story.
Read about Boners' big mistake after the jump...
It seems the owner of Boners decided to freak out on a customer who posted a Yelp review that wasn't exactly five stars via social media and as we've all learned that is the WORST thing you could ever do. This dude not only posted a little rant on the restaurant's Facebook and Twitter but he full out told this woman to "go outside and play hide and go fuck yourself" and he posted her photo! Who does that?!
UnMarketing.com, which awarded Bonders with the "Worse Use of Social Media" award, has the full story including all the super lame Facebook posts and a link to Stephanie's informative Yelp post. Check it out here.
