The leader of President Barack Obama's communications team suffered a rather unfortunate gaffe Tuesday when he failed to proofread a hastily-posted tweet.

Obviously, the word Pfeiffer meant to use was "bigger." He quickly deleted the tweet and issued an apology.
Obviously a horrendous typo in my previous tweet. My apologies— Dan Pfeiffer (@pfeiffer44) October 8, 2013
But his prompt apology hasn't kept some from having a few laughs at his expense.
Curse you autocorrect! Er, why is that word IN your autocorrect? http://t.co/Mgvz6VuQNi— Michael Z Williamson (@mzmadmike) October 8, 2013
Freudian slip LOL @pfeiffer44— ComfyPaws™ (@ComfyPaws) October 8, 2013
Others were not cutting him as much slack.
I'll accept @pfeiffer44's apology just as soon as he accepts Perry's rock story. Until then, his tweet is obvious evidence of closet racism— Greg Pollowitz (@GPollowitz) October 8, 2013
