Microsoft: Email promising ‘hella noms’ to ‘bae’ interns at ‘lit’ party was ‘poorly worded’

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 8 (UPI) — A Microsoft intern-recruiting email inviting “BAE” interns to get “lit” and enjoy “hella noms” at a beer pong party was decried by the company as “poorly worded.”

Twitter user Patrick Burtchaell said his roommate in the Mountain View, Calif., area received an email invitation to an “exclusive after party” hosted by Microsoft at the July 11 Internapalooza event in San Francisco.

The email, written in multi-colored text, reads:


I am Kim, a Microsoft University Recruiter. My crew is coming down from our HQ in Seattle to hang with you and the crowd of bay area interns at Internapalooza on 7/11.

BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, we’re throwing an exclusive after party the night of the event at our San Francisco office and you’re invited! There will be hella noms, lots of dranks, the best beats and just like last year, we’re breaking out the Yammer beer pong tables!


A Microsoft representative said in an email to Gizmodo the company does not condone the language of the email.

“The email was poorly worded and not in keeping with our values as a company. We are looking into how this occurred and will take appropriate steps to address it,” the rep said.
