CNBC host mocked for empty shelf Tweet

A CNBC host is being pulled over for tweeting an image of empty shelves. People say that this tweet is misleading because the store is simply stocking seasonal items.

Supply Chain Calamity has been making headlines for months. Fear Queuing for groceries and holiday gifts never works. However, concerns persist and there have been a few reports of shortages.

On Wednesday, Jim Cramer, host of Mad Money on CNBC, tweeted a photo of an empty shelf with the caption “non-optimal”.

Many assume that his fear of a shortage has long become a reality.

Feedback begins immediately. Twitter users note that empty shelves are embellished with pink labels, hearts and “sweet savings”. Since Valentine’s Day was the next big shopping holiday, they concluded that the store was simply exchanging Christmas items for chocolates and teddy bears, etc.

“If you could please give Dollar General Valentine’s Day products out right now, it would be…. Optimal,” joke @donmoyn. (A minute before Cramer’s “optimal” tweet, he tweeted a painting by Dollar General with the caption “field trip.”)

Many people also note that the shelves behind the aisle are empty appear to be full.

Twitter treated Cramer to a scale. As of the time of this writing, his tweets have many times more comments than likes — nearly 16,000 and 3,500 respectively.

People call his tweet “pure bullshit” and accused he lied.

The mockery continued on Wednesday.

“It was an ABSOLUTELY CONTEST they had no soul to talk to on December 28th,” commented @natsechobbyist. “Where is the work ethic that once made our country great? No one comes home until Valentine’s candy hits the shelves!!! ”

Many of the commenters were familiar with retail work.

One person said they have been working in retail for 24 years answered told Cramer, “The weeks after Christmas are the transition to Valentine’s Day. You condense and mark Christmas and […] filled with Valentine’s Day stuff. “

“This tweet is just irresponsible, and you should delete it.”

Some seem to feel that Cramer’s tweet has cast a shadow over his ability to analyze financial markets and trends.

However, most people just mocked him. Many people include “suboptimal” in their tweets.

“Can you walk to the end of the aisle and show us the fully stocked shelves? Or is truth to be ‘non-optimal’? ” tweeted @dvillella.

Cramer did not comment further on the matter.
