Twitter Meltdown: Del Monte Tweeted A Heartfelt Tribute To The Father Of Modern Green Beans And It’s Getting Really Worked Up That People Don’t Seem Upset By His Death

You’re going to want to see this incredible tweetstorm that pretty much the entire internet is talking about. Del Monte just had a full-on meltdown on Twitter yesterday afternoon after nobody responded to its heartfelt memorial tribute to someone it calls the father of modern green beans.

The canned-food conglomerate’s social media tantrum began when it made a heartfelt post acknowledging the passing of an innovator of the American green-bean industry:

When this tweet failed to generate a response from other Twitter users, Del Monte got increasingly frustrated and emotional:

Del Monte then posted a picture of the late Lawrence Gunnarson, but when it was clear that nobody recognized the man in the picture, its anger eventually gave way to sadness.

Wow. This is a serious PR failure for such a high-profile public company. Hopefully Del Monte can calm down about this apparently important green-bean figure long enough to do some damage control—and soon.
