The network, perhaps realizing that the anniversary of one of the most important civil rights speeches in American history was not the moment for a brand tie-in after all, quickly deleted the tweet.

Our earlier tweet was inappropriate. The intent was to celebrate this important date in history & we regret we failed to meet that standard.
