US Airways Tweets Pornographic Pic

Tue Apr 15, 2014 12:15 am

Us Airways Has oppoligozed to its followers after a tweet of a naked woman pleasuring herself with a toy airplane was sent out over their network...

Here's the link

Inappropriate, and yet I'm having so much fun with it. The original photo is still out there on the web for those looking. It's so very over the top, and not even remotely safe for work.

But the follow-on tweets are clever as hell!

Karma really is a bxxxh. AA was harsh to the 14yo on twitter, and now they get their own Twitter woes... on the same day.

Seriously, you can't make this stuff up.

Harsh?? They merely told them that they take threats seriously. How is that harsh?

Exactly.

So, having seen the tweeted photo...and knowing I'm pretty open-minded...if that popped up in my spam email I couldn't delete it fast enough.

They deserve to be in DEEP DEEP crap for that.

Working in media and having directed a social media team - not going to lie - I've been laughing at this all day long. It's amazing and then some.
The comments - I swear the comments on various sources such as HuffPost, Mashable, MediaBistro - etc - all just hilarious.

It's hella funny to read, but also speak volumes if such a faux pas can so easily be committed.

Even Spirit Air and their marginally inappropriate tag lines don't go this far. Just praying my JetBlue won't ever make the same mistake.

Anyhoo... I actually think this was a mistake. Obviously the offender had the link to that picture on their clipboard and instead of posting the link to their complaints page, accidently posted said picture, click "post" and then buggered off for the day.

Still.. no excuse! I work in Social Media and one lesson I have learnt is to always check what you post.

If they were really going to post that picture on purpose, they would have come up with a far wittier remark... #JustSayin
