Jennifer Palmieri, former director of communications for President Barack Obama’s administration and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, is being criticized for her insensitivity towards foreigners, particularly Russians.

“You guys. I just got into unmarked gypsy cab at sfo airport with a Russian driver. If I disappear- it’s a tan Lincoln continental,” the former President of Center for American Progress, a progressive advocacy group, tweeted Monday.

Of course, many on the social media platform, including influential people like author Glenn Greenwald, took notice.

The tweet has since been deleted, seemingly showing that the prominent leader of communications for big name Democrats and Democratic organizations regrets the piece of communication she disseminated to her roughly 104,000 followers, as well as the rest of the Twittersphere.

But as some observers noticed, “the internet is forever.”
