McLaren make Facebook gaffe on Button’s birthday
20 January, 2013
McLaren made a gaffe on Facebook when they wished Jenson Button happy birthday when he turned 33 on 19 January, but erroneously posted an action photo of Lewis Hamilton instead of birthday boy Button.
McLaren’s Facebook admin used a photo of Hamilton during last year’s Singapore Grand Prix weekend where Hamilton used a special edition helmet which was white instead of yellow, which perhaps contributed to the error.
The message on Facebook said; “Wishing Jenson Button a Happy Birthday from all of the team, have a good one JB” but accompanied by the the wrong picture.
McLaren fans on Facebook highlighted the gaffe and not long after the image was replaced with a correct photo of Button. (GP247)
