It has not been a great year for the New York City Police Department. On top of high-profile police-brutality incidents and pervasive trust issues, the NYPD can’t seem to get its social media act together.

Shortly after 11am EST, the Twitter account for the NYPD’s Midtown South Precinct unleashed a doozy of a “Motivational Monday” tweet.

It’s hard to explain just how mind-bogglingly tone-deaf this now-deleted tweet was—but most of the people who saw it helpfully provided some context.

At press time, the NYPD had yet to apologize for the tweet.

Talk about A Few Bad Men.
