Virgin Australia Tells Kanye West: “EAD You Douche”

Written by Tom Williams on February 16, 2016

UPDATE 17/02/16 4:35pm Responsibility for Virgin Australia’s “Kanye West eat a dick” tweet has been claimed by a media agency linked to the airline.

Original Story: Australia’s second-largest airline, Virgin Australia, has told one of the world’s biggest narcissists, Kanye West, to “EAD [eat a dick]”, and has called the rapper a “douche” in a now-deleted tweet which may or may not have just got someone fired.

As Mumbrella reports, Virgin Australia’s Twitter account sent the wayward tweet Kanye’s way after the rapper called out Pitchfork for giving his new album The Life Of Pablo a measly review score of nine out of 10:

The tweet which soon spawned from Virgin Australia’s account was so succinct and out of the ordinary for a company page that it copped love, hate and confusion before being removed. Here’s the tweet in question:

Since deleting the tweet, Virgin Australia has said the post wasn’t created by an employee, and has apologised for any offence it might have caused….

…but not everyone’s so convinced that the responsible Kanye-hater wasn’t actually a employee of the airline…

…while others are begging the company to stop apologising:

Yeezy is yet to respond to Virgin Australia’s poor attempt at starting an online beef, but it looks like the airline just scored itself a spot in some people’s good books — probably not Kanye’s, though.
