Toys R Us Tweets They Might Be Returning, Online Rage Ensues

This afternoon, a brand new tweet came up from the Toys R Us Twitter account that you could say didn't really "sit well" with people online. As you may recall, the company filed for bankruptcy, tried a dozen ways to save itself, and then ultimately shut down stores across the U.S. A few remain in Canada, but that's another story. The company was going to sell off their assets in an auction earlier this week, but pulled at the last moment. Today they announced that a subsidiary has secured all the company's assets. But the way they went about it was a little insulting.

Now picture yourself being a Toys R Us employee and having to read that online after you lost your job. You don't have to imagine, we have several here for you. Classy move, new owners… classy. We don't expect anything at this point, because to predict if and when they're coming back is a fool's game at this point. For now, we leave you with some of our favorite reactions so far.
