President Barack Obama’s communications chief accidentally dropped the N-word on Twitter.

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

Dan Pfeiffer inadvertently used the N-word in a message to his more than 54,000 Twitter followers.

Obviously, the word Pfeiffer meant to use was “bigger.” He quickly deleted the tweet and issued an apology.

But his prompt apology hasn’t kept some from having a few laughs at his expense. 

Others were not cutting him as much slack.
