Clorox Fights Back Against Yale’s ‘Poopetrator’
A fecal scandal dropped at Yale University’s Saybrook College laundry room over the past week. The Yale Daily News has reported, horrifyingly, that the facility was subject to a “poopetrator,” defecating in unattended laundry machines while students’ dirty clothes were still inside.
It wasn’t long before household bleach brand Clorox butt in on Twitter with an image of a Clorox bleach bottle behind glass that reads, “BREAK GLASS IN CASE OF POOMERGENCY.”
