Any Twitter-user will tell you that there’s nothing more passive aggressive than a subtweet. But when the subtweeter is MUN’s Dining Services, passive aggression is not well-tolerated.
On Sunday, MUN Dining’s Twitter account retweeted a post from an account called ‘Unknown Facts.’
“It’s funny how you can do nice things for people all the time and they never notice. But once you make one mistake, it’s never forgotten,” read the tweet.
The tweet sparked outrage on social media, with hundreds of students sharing the post and calling the retweet unprofessional, immature, and insensitive.
“Like this is serious junior high sub-tweeting” one commenter said.
“You stay classy Aramark” posted another on Facebook.
MUN’s Dining services have been under intense fire this past week as students have taken to social media and public meetings to express their immense dissatisfaction with MUN’s food service provider, Aramark.
The student-driven campaign to #StopAramark began last week when a student posted a picture of a raw pork chop she was served at the dining hall online. Since the incident, students have taken to social media to share their experiences of poorly-prepared food, limited options for those with special diets, breaches in hygiene, unhealthy choices, and management that is generally dismissive of complaints.
Meal plans are mandatory for students living in residence, and cost a minimum $2,200 per semester. Full time tuition at Memorial University costs around $1,275 per semester.
MUN Dining deleted the retweet late Monday afternoon.
