How To Kill Your Brand and Business With A Few Facebook Updates

posted in: Social Media 98 comments

You’d think in this day and age of social media, Community Managers of Facebook Pages for businesses would be trained and savvy.

Because if they were, they wouldn’t call their customers “bitches” and tell someone who posted a complaint on their wall, that it’d “kill” them to have customers like these. Couple that with a poor grasp of the English language, and you have an almost laughable social media disaster, as evidenced by Le Deux Garcons, a bakery (or as they call themselves, a patisserie) based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

{In Sarcasm Font} Here’s how you kill your brand and business in a few simple steps:

1. When a customer has a valid complaint, and a helpful suggestion to improve customer service, tell them to buy their desserts elsewhere. For dramatic flair, tell your customer it’d kill you to have to serve people like her. Oh, and insult the French while you’re at it.

Le Deux Garcons FB wall status

2. Following that exchange, tell your customers that you can manage without their patronage because you can “afford to.” Use the word “whatever” when possible, to emphasize how little you care.

3. Delete the wall status above. But only after it’s been screen grabbed.

4. Proceed to call your customers “bitches”.

Le Deux Garcons calls customers bitches

5. Delete the wall post above and pretend nothing happened, while everyone in Kuala Lumpur spreads word that your bakery is not worth visiting, unless you want to be called a bitch and served up a side of attitude.

As of this writing (March 24, Sunday morning), Le Deux Garcons has not responded to this unfolding disaster in any way. Their Facebook page‘s last update is over two months old. The non-recommendations are rolling in, with folks saying they will never, ever step foot into that store again.

Not once have they apologized for the poor service the original poster complained about, nor their rude responses to their customers.

Le Deux Garcons, I think you need to hire a social media consultant and/ or a PR team to clean up your social media mess. Good luck.

Update #1: Le Deux Garcons posted this apology (which sounds very template, or is it just me?) at 1.00 p.m. on 24 March. From the comments, it doesn’t look like it made much difference, with customers calling for a more sincere approach.

Le Deux Garcons apology

Update #2: The largest local newspaper covered this “brouhaha” as they called it, quoting the owner Ben Yeong as saying that the apology above is sufficient, and that’s that. He also insisted that the remarks above were written by a “staff member”. So, Mr. Yeong, your shop assistants are allowed to login to your business’s Facebook account? Or worse, do you have a social media manager who is clearly clueless? My take? Mr. Ben Yeong is the perpetrator.

I will be following this as it unfolds further, and post updates when they happen.

    The shame is that this happens way too often. And each time it does, media picks up on it. Why, when there are such capable social media people out there, do companies continue to screw over their own customers by thinking that they can handle a little Facebook and Twitter on their own? Just because you use Twitter and know how to set up a Facebook page does not make you a social media professional.

      Sadly, this is very common for Malaysian companies, who spend big bucks on advertising and PR (this is from personal experience), but fail to recognize that social media needs its own team. Not everyone can handle social media, as evidenced by this mess, which is not the first in Malaysia (Google “Paradigm Mall social media” and you’ll see what I mean).

  • March 24, 2013 Adrienne

    Wow. I wonder who’s handling their social media?? I wonder if it’s truly the owner or an employee. Either way, the owners should be well aware. My number one peeve is poor customer service. It shows such an arrogance and attitude of entitlement when business owners do not offer kind service.

      From the way it was written, it sounded like the owner of the bakery. The staff could be all busy in the kitchen, with no time surfing the net.

    • March 27, 2013 Alison

      The owner has claimed that a “staff member” was responsible for these remarks, which I highly doubt. From the language (my, mine etc, referring to the business, in those Facebook responses), indicate to me that it was the owner himself. He’s denying it though.

    Hey Alison, I stumbled on your blog after the LDG burst on their FB. Just to say I like your blog and reading your bio, I’m inspired. =D

    • March 24, 2013 Alison

      Paulin, thank you for coming by, reading and commenting!

  • March 24, 2013 kensomuse

    Hi Alison,

    Came across your blog after reading your comments in LDG. Being in the sales and service industry for the past 15 years, I was shocked when I first came across this issue. I am also dismayed at how another chef, Isodara Chai stood up to defend this appalling attitude in the article below:-

    and I had written a lengthy reply but was sadly unable to post due to the admin disabling comments. The MalaysianInsider were probably unable to deal with the huge negativity that was heading their way for publishing such a view. I run my own blog (though limited to the automotive field only) and am very careful with what gets posted.

    I am curious about one thing …. in all my years of experience, I would advise the owners of LDG to lay low for the next couple of months …. don’t remove any more posting and be polite in every form of engagement with whatever feedback that is given. Hopefully they would have a more mature administrator who could not only respond in a more sensible manner but to be able to pick the gems from the heaps of negative feedback they’re going to get. They could still turn this around if they are able to show they have truly made changes to their store. What else would you recommend since you’ve been a PR person for such a long while?

    • March 27, 2013 Alison

      Hi, thank you for your comment! Yes, I read Isadora Chai’s article as well, and was not impressed with her point of view, and said as much in my comment there. There is no circumstance, in any industry, to warrant calling customers “bitches”.

      I agree with you that LDG should probably lie low for a while, to wait for the furore to die down. However, looking at their response over the past few days, they appear to give the impression of being unapologetic and unrepentant. They won’t even admit to being responsible for the posts, blaming it on a member of their staff (which I doubt). If they remain steadfastly unapologetic, I doubt they will ever reach the pinnacle of success they could have.

      Immediate measures they should take should include:
      1. Taking the customer’s suggestion onboard – label those macarons!
      2. Go on their Facebook page, and tell people they did that. It’s the first step to show that they do care about what customers think.
      3. Apologize personally to Ee-Lyn, the original customer who started this whole thing.
      4. Train their staff in customer service.
      5. Hire a social media manager.

  • March 24, 2013 Martha

    This is just unbelievable. Customer service is not difficult… you just have to treat your customer as you’d want to be treated. The person who made the comments needs to stay off of social media sites (and the people in the store should try harder to be kind and helpful to customers). What a mess!

    • March 27, 2013 Alison

      Yes, and the first thing they should have done, was to put labels on those macarons, and show people they did. At least that shows they do care about constructive criticism, and that they listen to their customers. LDG has a lot to learn about customer service AND social media.

  • March 25, 2013 Corinna

    Given the attitude of a lot of youngsters in the work place these days, the original, inflammatory comments would appear to have come from someone rather young. This was most probably a family Facebook page put together and administered by a teenager, either staff or a member of the family. The results probably took a while to filter down to the business owner when someone either phoned to complain or visited the shop to do so. I can understand the austere reply. It is difficult to grovel in text format without the possibility of making your readers cringe, and I suspect – and hope, that a more abject apology has been posted at the business concerned.

    • March 25, 2013 Meng

      Based on what I hear possibly from one of the 2 owners, a male as well.

    • March 27, 2013 Alison

      No further apology was posted, and the owners have made it very clear that they have apologized and that’s enough, as far as they’re concerned. As to who posted the comments, the owners have claimed that a member of staff did so, but many doubt that, and feel that it is one of the owners who did. Which makes sense if you look at the language used (me, my etc) and the fact that it’s a business Facebook page, not a personal one. I doubt that the owner would have given Admin access to one of his staff to mess around with their page.

    I guess with a little proper planning and snatching up this golden opportunity there could actually be a silver lining beneath it all. But it all depends on the owners.

    Apparently some sources said that it was the owner who replied and posted himself. So i guess that says much about it. Will be following this closely as well.

    I think this is a great reminder that EVERYTHING we do – online or off – affects our reputation. There is a time and a place to complain, and the customer had a valid complaint and voiced her opinion appropriately. The company, however, went ballistic and responded completely inappropriately.
    Have you ever head the saying, “It takes 20 years to build a reputation but 20 seconds to destroy it?”
    I definitely wouldn’t frequent a place like that. If their attitude is like that, I can imagine how that it probably carries over to other areas…i.e. cleanliness, professionalism, overall courtesy, the care in which they make their product, and the list goes on.

      Yes, absolutely!

  • March 27, 2013 Corinna

    Given how the people in the business obviously feel about suggestions and comments made to them, I am actually surprised they have a Facebook page anyway. Why would you bother if you do not want to interact in a positive way with prospective clients? Social media is just that, social, so be sociable and interact with the people who have come to your page to speak to you. If you feel agro, take a deep breath, and wait until the next day to give a courteous reply – or not, as the case may be. But never use an advertising platform for your business in such an antagonistic manner, it gives the sense that you would be like that if anyone visited your premises and said something you were not happy about.

    As for who did or did not make the comments and handle the administration of the page, you would be horrified if you knew the age and level of education/training many administrators have. I am not going to name any names, but a highly thought of, global IT company, with a local page, obviously has/had a badly educated and untrained person administrating their business page. Many answers have been given in text speak and have also not been well thought out prior to posting, as just one example. Administration of an FB page, and even company web pages and blogs, is often left to very junior people who have no business or other experience and no common sense, as it is seen as being a low level responsibility that takes no special training or care. In point of fact, such a job should be taken on by a more mature, experienced person.

    Ergo, it is highly possible that a junior member of that company or family has been responsible for setting up the page and administering it. Even so, this could have been sorted out in a better way with a better attitude. Many of us have been left with the feeling that we would have that attitude to deal with if we spent our money in their shop.

    • March 28, 2013 Alison

      Corinna, you’re spot on with your observation that many companies just don’t seem to see the value in assigning social media to people with the right experience and maturity. It’s unfortunate, and as a social media consultant, I really hope to see things change.

It’s almost impossible to be called a bitch in Paris, where good manners and formalities are the most important thing…this Ben Yeong clearly has a lot to learn from French people, or from polite people in general. There’re 2 French people owning and working at “Yeast” in Telawi, just to make an example, but you’ll never see such an attitude. Doing some decent macarons doesn’t allow him to disrespect anyone, especially considering that without customers he can eat himself his macarons. I’m French myself and yes, I feel offended by this dumb remark of him.

    I understand that you’re offended. I am too, on behalf of all French people! LDG’s owners are clearly clueless.

    Thanks Alison! I read the Isadora Chai comment on the malaysianinsider as well, and I enjoyed your comment there as well πŸ™‚
