While there are a few abbreviations such as might be used in mobile phone texting (which is a leading form of communication in some parts of the world), the main point is that the source language before the abbreviations is a very different form of english than the one most of us are familiar with. And it's really not our place to judge that local language by the standards of our different language.
Remember, it's a message of LOCAL interest, and aimed at a young adult audience. The people who are objecting are NOT examples of the people it was intended to appeal to.
The only actual mistake was posting it on a global forum without more prominently specifying the location or purpose.
