People make mistakes. Companies make mistakes. The Muck Boot Company has posted a statement about the posts that eluded to a donation by the company to HSUS.
The biggest lesson to learn from all of this is that you cannot just have anybody at the helm of your social media. Whoever has control of the accounts has control of the company.
UPDATE- But wait there’s more???
Muck Boot company seemed to have stepped in a big pile of the stuff their boots are supposed to keep you out of.
Why would a company that sells the majority of their products to farmers, ranchers and hunters donate money to The Humane Society of the United States, an anti animal ag, anti hunting group that just lost their rating on Charity Navigator because of their shady dealings?
But they did…
I took a look at the edits made to one of the posts and it gives me hope that this may have just been a mistake but until Muck Boots corrects what they’ve said, they have lost our family as customers.
I’ll be waiting to hear from Muck Boots and Honeywell (the parent company of Muck and Servus Boots) because I’d rather farm barefoot than support a company that supports HSUS! Join me in asking Muck Boots what they were thinking. #WhatTheMuck!?!
