Twitter users expressed their outrage online after fashion designer Kenneth Cole made an "inappropriate" comment about Egypt on his Twitter account Thursday.

"Millions are in uproar in #Cairo. Rumor is they heard our new spring collection is now available online at http://bit.ly/KCairo -KC," Cole tweeted Thursday morning. (According to a note on the account, tweets by him are signed, "KC.")

Twitter users quickly responded in outrage.

"Well @kennethcole, that was wildly inappropriate," tweeted Kaylie Nelson.

"Keep it classy @KennethCole. Never shopping there again. . . ," responded Dave Reed.

"You should be ashamed of yourselves @KennethCole ! How tasteless and insensitive! People are dying there!" Husain AlTamimi tweeted.

Cole tweeted an apology about an hour later: "Re Egypt tweet: we weren't intending to make light of a serious situation. We understand the sensitivity of this historic moment -KC."

Kenneth Cole is doing the world a favor favor by making people upset to the point of boycotting his products.

Millions are in uproar in #Cairo. Rumor is they are angry at Kenneth Cole for his tweet.

Oh wait. What did I do there?

You just created a paradox and divided by 0. Black holes will form.

It is kinda funny, but then again I have a dark sense of humor...

Then again, I am sure shareholders are in uproar as well...

Square toes aren't that useful in a riot environment...

Think of Berlusconi and you will realise Mr Cole's aren't that bad at all...

He told earthquake's victims living in tents it was like being on holidays and the Italians love him.
