After the Texas-based Brown Coffee Company caused outrage with their "homophobic" tweet, they hit up their blog to correct the record: "This was a post about CLASSICAL PHILOSOPHY and LAWS (a la Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas, etc.), not PEOPLE; but somehow people began to twist what was written and added their own lies to the post to mean that somehow we at The Brown Coffee Company are hateful, homophobic, intolerant people."
The company's Twitter account is still locked, so alas an analysis of Brown Coffee Company's many other tweets about how the philosophical underpinnings of law and its relation to coffee roasting is technically impossible.
As for the apology, take it for what you will; as one of our commenters said, "Hash tags don't lie."
