City Park Apartments, an apartment complex in Salt Lake City, Utah, has aroused the ire – and ridicule – of the interwebs by posting a lease addendum on each of their tenants’ doors last Thursday, advising their tenants to “like” City Park Apartments on Facebook, or face being in breach of contract. (Full text of the City Park Facebook Addendum below.)
Amanda Bonnen – the woman formerly known as @abonnen on Twitter – was apparently unhappy with the mold growing in the apartment which she rented from property management company Horizon Group Management LLC. Earlier this year she said as much on Twitter, tweeting a Tweet (a Twitter message) in which she said “Who said sleeping in a moldy apartment was bad for you? Horizon realty thinks it’s okay.”
Whether or not Horizon thinks that a moldy apartment is ok, they clearly think that talking about their moldy apartments isn’t – this week Horizon slapped Amanda Bonnen with a lawsuit in which they ask for $50,000 in damages for that single Tweet.
