Remember a few weeks ago when Marc Jacobs' CEO Robert Duffy retired from the company's Twitter account and put out the help-wanted call for a new social media manager? Well, in the meantime, it looks like they put the @MarcJacobsIntl Twitter account in the hands of an intern—and it looks like the intern had a total meltdown at midnight last night, tweeting a series of 140-character rants before the plug was pulled on his/her antics. The Daily Mail reports:
A posting from an iPhone at midnight EST read: 'You guys and gals have no idea how difficult Robert is. I am only an intern. My last day is tomorrow. I wouldn't be tweeting this if not!'The above tweet appeared around 11 a.m. this morning.
'Good luck! I pray for you all. If you get the job! I'm out of here. See ya! Son't want to be ya! Roberts a tyrant! Seriously! He is tough!' another read.
He continued: 'I can call him out! I'm out! Won't work in this town again! I know that! Learned a lot. But, I don't have the energy for what is expected!'
Signing off, he added: 'Yea, walk in my MJ shoes! Don't judge me! I'm alone in this office having to try and entertain you all. This isn't easy. I have tried. Done!'
According to The Daily Truffle, the tweets were deleted at approximately 4am EST.
