#myNYPD: NYPD Asks Twitter To Send Police Selfies, Gets Hit With Gruesome Police Brutality Pics Instead

By: 04.22.14

In an attempt to get with the times, the New York Police Department devised a plan to raise their Klout score by interacting with followers on social media, namely, Twitter and Facebook.

This afternoon, someone at One Police Plaza thought it would be a neat idea to start a #myNYPD hashtag with folks sending in their police selfies.

Then all hell broke loose with hundreds of users sending in harrowing images of the NYPD roughing up citizens of all ages, races and religions.

The worst PR disaster since R. Kelly’s people did #AskRKelly last year.
