Seems like Justine is unavailable for comment, but the PR's PR said:
The company is "taking appropriate action" after the Twitter post incited ridicule.
Barry Diller's IAC has issued a statement saying that it is "taking appropriate action" after a comment posted on the Twitter account of its corporate communications officer incited ridicule on social media.Where is the world is Justine Sacco, she is unreachable, yes unreachable and she is in public or media relations, really...and Justine is not responding to her ever so clever tweet.
“This is an outrageous, offensive comment that does not reflect the views and values of IAC. Unfortunately, the employee in question is unreachable on an international flight, but this is a very serious matter and we are taking appropriate action.”
