TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! MANY THANKS TO TRUCKILY!!! CHECK THEIR RESPONSE TO THE TKC BLOG COMMUNITY!!!
Honestly, I didn't expect a response this soon.
To wit . . .
TKC WOULD LIKE TO THANK KANSAS CITY INTERNETS FIRM TRUCKILY FOR THIS GRACIOUS RESPONSE TO OUR BOYCOTT WHICH HAS NOW BEEN RESCINDED!!!
Here's the response from Truckily co-founder Derek Kean that was confirmed via e-mail.
Dear Tony and friends,
We have removed the video from our homepage. Sincerest apologies go out to anyone who was offended by the video. We were using the character in question as a character, not anything negative towards our close friends and family.
To wit . . .
TKC BELIEVES THAT TRUCKILY IS A KICK-ASS APP AND CERTAINLY WORTH A SECOND LOOK!!!
Our biggest concern here wasn't just a cartoon but the fact that Kansas City isn't looking out for diversity amid our current tech boom. Thankfully, what we've found today is that when some AWESOME companies are confronted with this issue, they work to make accommodations and realize that it's in their best interest to appeal to the broadest possible market that's inclusive to EVERYONE.
Again, we're kind of in awe of this AWESOME TKC BLOG COMMUNITY and would like to once again EXTEND OUR DEEPEST THANKS AND APPRECIATION to Truckily.com
