Man Immediately Regrets Hitting Facebook “Like” Button

However, he has no regrets about Farmville.

BIRMINGHAM, AL – Ted Guttfield immediately regretted hitting the Facebook “Like” button after reading an article on the New York Times website.

The article, “Scores Hurt and Many Feared Killed as Violence Flares in Cairo,” recounts the clash between protesters and pro-Mubarak supporters in Egypt.

Guttfield worried how he would be perceived once his “Like” popped up in the Facebook News Feed of his friends and acquaintances.

“Oh God, what are people going to think?” Guttfield said. “I only liked it because it was a well-written article. I don’t like that Egyptians are getting hurt.”

In an act of desperation Guttfield deleted the post on his own News Feed, but the damage was already done.

“I saw that Ted liked that article on the protests,” friend Nancy Sayers said. “I had no idea he hated Egyptians.”

“I read the same article on the New York Times website,” coworker Greg Allen said. “There was a little box that said, ‘Ted Guttfield likes this,’ and a Facebook logo. I didn’t know Ted read the New York Times. This really changes my opinion of him,” Allen said.

“Plus, he’s apparently racist against Egyptians. Maybe more people,” he added.

After word spread around his office of Ted’s “Like,” he was pulled into an impromptu meeting by his supervisor. According to sources, Ted was reprimanded for “goofing off on company time” and for “inciting violence.”

Ted has vowed to never “Like” anything ever again.
