By James Smith:
WE DID NOT FEED OUR SOFTWARE ENGINEER DOG MEAT!
We couldn’t resist a bit of twitter mischief to highlight an important issue.
Not a single dog was harmed during our latest stunt, we promise. Hundreds of people took to Twitter to voice their outrage, with some branding our company the “lowest of the low”.
James Smith; Public Relations - Fruity King “ Our main concern is the treatment of dogs caged and farmed for their meat. It was a little bit of a prolonged April Fools stunt, but it managed to raise awareness of a very serious issue at the same time. We new we had really caught people's attention when a member of parliament got involved."
THE TWITTER STORM BEGINS……
We admit it was a bit controversial to post such a picture, but as Dog lovers, we wanted to help raise awareness about the grisly dog meat trade.

@FruityKing_ you disgusting morons. Blocked and reported
We DID NOT feed our software engineer Dog Meat. We love dog’s so much, we actually have a pet French Bulldog named Rocky roaming around our social media teams office.
PEOPLE REALLY WENT TO TOWN….
NAUGHTY SOCIAL MEDIA TEAM!….
LABOUR’S PARLIAMENTARY CANDIDATE FOR NEWCASTLE CHI ONWURAH MP HAD HER SAY…..
THEN THE CUTE PUPPY PICTURES APPEARED…
THEN TO CAP IT ALL OFF, THE MEDIA REALLY STUCK THE BOOT IN.
So now we have come clean, we believe Fruity Kings’s Dog Meat stunt has helped to haul this issue into the public light, with our own little mischievous twist #stopyulin2015
