Still more Marc Jacobs (the brand) employment news today: The intern that fired off several batshit crazy tweets outing Marc Jacobs' CEO Robert Duffy as a "tyrant" and "tough" is "happily employed fulltime" according to the tweet from @MarcJacobsINTL below.

Anything is possible in fashion and social media.
