This tweet has since been deleted from Esquire‘s Twitter feed, but was screengrabbed by Jezebel blogger Irin Carmon. Esquire followed up with a tweet which reads, “Sometimes our sense of humor doesn’t come out the way we intend. Sorry if an earlier tweet offended anyone.” I’m hoping the initial tweet came from a social media intern who didn’t know any better and is getting their wrist slapped right about now.
