Environment and science reporter for the DomPost Kate Green faced internet backlash after making a tweet smack-talking a long-time subscriber who decided they’d no longer want to support their work.

Kate Green says she had the ‘pleasure’ to accept a phone call from a senior gentleman who had notified the DomPost that he would be cancelling his subscription, since being a subscriber for the last 50 years.

The tweet was later removed, but screenshots show what was said.

The man who cancelled the subscription says it was because of the ‘horrendous bullshit’ from the first five pages of a newly released paper.

“Hope the door hits you on the way out actually mate.”

The tweet surrounds questions on how a Journalist has the power to field phone calls from a subscriber — the whole workplace must have known about it for Kate Green to tweet about it. The tweet was removed after users fired internet backlash in the comments.

Stuff has had a large history of employing staff who have had no training in public relations, including posting online tweets like this one that can make reputation drop like a thermometer.
