American subscription video-on-demand streaming company, HBO Max is used by millions worldwide. People around the world subscribe to streaming service for entertainment-related content. While HBO Max has a long list of users, just recently, subscribers to a mailing list received an odd, baffing email from the streaming service. As many internet users tried to find out the real reason behind this, it all led to a plethora of jokes online. After the buzz grew louder, HBO Max reacted to the empty test mail sent to users. And, they blamed it on an ‘Intern’.
Taking to their official Twitter handle, HBO Max issued a statement on the test email sent to users. They clarified it was any promotion for a new show, but a technical gaffe. They tweeted, “We mistakenly sent out an empty test email to a portion of our HBO Max mailing list this evening. We apologize for the inconvenience”, it wrote on Twitter. Responding to the jokes and memes online, the streaming platform said, “Yes, it was the intern”, adding: “No, really. And we’re helping them through it.”
Reacting to this, many users across the world made tweets recounting their professional blunders. Many wrote to the ‘Dear Intern’ and sympathized. On Instagram, UpWorthy reported a series of tweets made by the netizens. One user tweeted, “Dear Intern, I once tweeted the word “impotent” instead of “impetus” from the White House Twitter account. Yes. The WHITE HOUSE- and then the media also screenshotted it. You’re welcome. I survived. You’ll be just fine.” Several other users opened up and extended support to the intern on social media. Meanwhile, amidst all this, the post made on Instagram was liked by Jennifer Aniston. Yes! You read that right. The actress is loving these heart-warming responses the netizens are sharing.
