GM’s New Tone-Deaf Car Ad Is A Slap In The Face For Employees

GM’s announcement of layoffs of 14,000 workers and the closing of five plants has dominated headlines over the past week.

But its recent ad might win the prize for worst timing and a lack of tact.

The insensitivity was not lost on YouTube’s audience. One commented, “So if we are all part of the Chevy family now as employee discount eligible. Does that mean your going to lay off most of america for Christmas? Pure awesomeness!!”

Another wrote, “Flawless timing and in perfect tastes, GM…#GMLayoffs
