'should have known better'
...yeah, past events show that they don't know much of anything.

Well, it's not burning down their mansions with them trapped inside, but it's a start, I guess.
So, if I understand this correctly... The title means:
Stasy Keach reads "Ask JP Morgan" -tweets, that lead JP Morgan cancelling the event.
I would love to see the minutes from the meeting that greenlit this. I suppose it really shows how much of a bubble these assholes live in.
I once heard an interview with several Wall Street traders/bankers at a bar near Wall Street after the collapse. They were all living it up and drinking expensive spirits and what have you, and they were maintaining that they deserved all of their wealth because they were smarter, had to get more education and work harder than anyone else. It was pointed out to them that their entire industry had to be bailed out by the taxpayers, yet this didn't seem to make any kind of impression on their opinions of themselves.
If the fantasy some have of sending these wastes of skin to the guillotine were carried out, the sad thing would be that they truly wouldn't understand why they were being executed, since self-realization seems to be just under "don't rig more laws to fuck the people who actually work for a living" on their to-do list.
So how much longer until JP Morgan starts throwing money towards anti-cyberbullying initiatives? Because, you know, tolerating unlimited free speech on the internet leads to things like teen suicide and the public shaming of too-big-to-fail financial juggernauts.
Tweets are great. Reading isn't bad. Music completely ruins it.
5 for the manliest Stacy I know.
For some reason I thought Stacy Keach was dead.

What's more illuminating in the aftermath is how many news outlets are declaring this a "social media disaster" because JP Morgan was so foolish as to actually give its victims a chance to air their grievances directly to the antagonistic force that took a giant shit on their livelihoods. Even this much is little more than the corporate equivalent of a US President's public approval poll, and they don't have the skin to weather it. The real failure here is that JPM and others will take nothing away from the mess except that all the ungrateful plebeians deserve their sorry lot because they aren't smart* enough to be on top.
*where "smart" = ruthless, connected, born into privilege, etc.
