Website to readers: Get a life

The Daily Sydney lifestyle website took an interesting approach to consumer feedback today after a racy American Apparel ad led to a couple of readers complaining on Twitter that it had made the site unsuitable for viewing at work.  

Daily Sydney TwitterAlthough Daily Sydney appears to have pulled down the offending ad after the complaints, it also tweeted back, telling two commenters readers to “get a life”.

(Update: The ad is now back. The site has also sent the following new tweet: “Dear Sydney, please support us against @mumbrella by commenting on this article”)

(Update to the update: As you’ll see from the comment stream below, American Apparel says this is not an ad that it paid for or asked to have on the site.)
