A couple of real estate agents are apologizing after the Amber Alert hashtag showed up in their social media postings while there was an actual Amber Alert on Friday.
Royal LePage reps Wilma Fournier and Mark Hulst are being investigated by the provincial real estate board after the tweets in question were posted on Friday. Both agents removed the tweets a couple of hours before the child was found safe.
Both the agents and Royal LePage apologized, saying that Rayman Solutions (a third party company) handled the brokerage’s social media.
“Please bear with us as we are waiting for Rayman Solutions to write a proper apology for this horrible mistake” Fournier tweeted Friday afternoon. “We are terribly embarrassed.”
Royal LePage Canada said in a statement on Friday afternoon that they plan to sever its relationship with Rayman Solutions.
