Harvey Norman slammed for "revolting irresponsible" tweet

Department store Harvey Norman has been slammed on social media for a "revolting" response to a tweet from its official company account.

The company replied to a tweet from a former employee who claimed that working for the company made them "suicidal".

"Working for your god forsaken company drove me to suicide in 6 months," they wrote.

"To the 50 people paid $200k a year to manage one account — go f*** yourselves."

The HarveyNormanAU Twitter account tweeted two emojis, which were a facepalm and a waving hand.

Twitter users were furious about the company's response.

“I made the decision to never step into one of their stores last year,” one man said.

“This is the most revolting, irresponsible response to a tweet containing sensitive health information I’ve seen from a corporate entity,” a woman wrote, saying she will never spend another cent there.

“Congrats Harvey Norman, you have lost me, my friends and family as customers,” another man said.

The day prior to the “out of line” response, the same Twitter handle posted: “Twitter is no longer a customer service channel and is unmanned.”
