City of Biloxi under fire for ‘Great Americans Day’ post

Shortly before 7 p.m., the city posted on its Facebook page that they would be closed on the third Monday of the month. The problem – they didn’t reference the day as Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Instead, the city told nearly 30,000 people on Facebook that non-emergency municipal offices would be closed in observance of “Great Americans Day.” The city has since deleted the post after news agencies around the country picked up the story, garnering it thousands of shares and comments.
