Chase deletes tweet offering unsolicited financial advice

You why is my balance so low. Bank account make coffee at home. Bank account eat the food that's already in the fridge. Bank account you don't need a cab it's only three blocks. You I guess we'll never know. Bank account seriously? #MondayMotivatio

Chase, America's largest bank, joined the #MondayMotivation conversation on Twitter by offering tips to save money.

A simple idea to provide motivation backfired for a bank.

In addition to deleting the original tweet, the bank did make an apology of sorts in a subsequent tweet, saying, "Our #MondayMotivation is to get better at #MondayMotivation tweets".

Rep. Katie Porter a Democrat from California said tweet reflected the fact the bank and Dimon are 'out of touch'. In the scripted tweet, a bank customer asks why their balance is low, with Chase chastising the customer for making everyday purchases like coffee, lunch, and cab fare.

"We have to make sure that people understand that this is not about Hollywood , it's not about the movies", Bridenstine said. Bridenstine said we mustn't think asteroids are merely the stuff of Hollywood movies like Deep Impact.

'They pay their workers barely enough to make rent, and then try to shame them into thinking it's their own fault for buying an occasional coffee, ' Porter said in an emailed statement. 'Thanks for the feedback Twitter world'.

A tweet from Chase was meant to encourage customers to save more money, but ended up badly missing the mark.

Porter concluded her CNN appearance Tuesday by questioning Dimon's commitment to ensuring "prosperity for every American family" by lowering health-care costs and increasing wages. In 2013, McDonald's was on the receiving end of public backlash after trying to teach its employees how to create a personal budget, which assumed they had to work two jobs to survive but also failed to account for such necessities as child care and groceries.
