BP’s Cheif Executive Apologized on Facebook

June 5, 2010 cjenkins8

On Facebook,  Tony Hayward apologized for his comment regarding the Gulf oil spill. He said, “Nobody wants this thing to be over more than I do. I’d like my life.”  Later, on CBS’s “The Early Show,” Hayward wrote: “Those words don’t represent how I feel about this tragedy.” Many believed that Facebook was not the appropriate for this type of apology.

    Chrissy,
    I definitely agree with these people. An apology for this type of catastrophe should not be posted on a social network like facebook. You aren’t messaging your friends, your apologizing to the nation for your lies. I feel this was very immature and childish of BP. Own up for your mistakes. We will respect you more for it. What do you think?

    I completely agree with both of you! I think with the growth of Facebook and other social networking sites heads of companies begin to think that there is no use for an on camera apology. I can only hope that the Chief Executive of BP learned his lesson. The oil spill on the Gulf is not a little crises but a problem that is killing our sea life, and affecting many families. Maybe Hayward should remember that all of those people want there life back to. -Amber

    I think the whole concept of BP trying to save public face is a little out of their hands now. If Tony Hayward hasn’t realized this now, he’s hopeless. However, I don’t know if you caught the news article that was actually dated on June 5 about their negligence in paying for the barrier island program. Instead, the massive ad program was started, including the ads that pop up on Youtube. I don’t think anyone else wants a reminder of the travesty that BP has inflicted on our coast.
