FAFSA apologizes for poor attempt at a good message

Federal Student Aid, the government agency responsible for issuing FAFSA (free application for federal student aid) is at the receiving end of internet backlash after tweeting out a joke about being poor.

The FAFSA account posted a popular meme of Kristen Wiig from the movie “Bridesmaids.”


“We apologize for the insensitivity of our previous tweet,” the agency wrote. “Our goal is to make college a reality for all. We’re very sorry.”
