Rightmove, the UK’s leading property portal has apologised to its Facebook 13,600 Facebook fans for insensitive remarks about the riots sweeping the UK.
Yesterday, Rightmove posted the question: “Are the riots affecting where you live? What do you think will happen to house prices in those areas?”
The post produced a social media backlash with numerous posts criticising the portal. After taking down the question, Rightmove apologised:
“Apologies all, that was a stupid message for us to send out. We are incredibly sorry if and where we caused offense.”
Adding: “We really are incredibly sorry everyone…we live in London too and are absolutely shocked and appalled by what is happening to innocent people”.
Since a low point on Tuesday morning, shares in the company have rallied nearly 10%. It seems all publicity maybe good publicity.
