AP DELETES George H.W. Bush Post After People Rip It To Shreds

The Associated Press has deleted a post they shared about the passing of former President George H.W. Bush.

The post, many people argued, was incredibly tasteless as it described his electoral loss, omitted his military service, and said he caused division during his time in office.

Following its deletion, the Associated Press wrote, “We’ve deleted a tweet and revised a story on the death of President George H.W. Bush because the tweet and the opening of the story referenced his 1992 electoral defeat and omitted his WWII service.”

People online similarly criticized the new tweet:

“George H.W. Bush, a patrician New Englander whose presidency soared with the coalition victory over Iraq in Kuwait, but then plummeted in the throes of a weak economy that led voters to turn him out of office after a single term, has died. He was 94,” the now-deleted post read.
