US Airways Probably Didn’t Want to Tweet This Vagina Pic

I was trying to write about this yesterday until the site went down because apparently everyone really wanted to know about the Love & Hip Hop sex tape.

Anyway, on Monday afternoon, US Airways issued an apology after they tweeted a photo of a woman with a model 777 airplane stuck deep in her vagina. This was in response to a customer complaining to them about being stuck on the tarmac. “You ruined my spring break, I want some free stuff,” they wrote. US Airways tweeted back that photo with the caption, “@ellerafter We welcome feedback, Elle. If your travel is complete, you can detail it here for review and follow-up.”

It was almost an hour before the company took down the tweet but not before being retweeted 500 times. Check out the very NSFW version here.

Who has two thumbs and will never work in social media again? That guy manning US Airways’ Twitter feed. Yikes.

The image was first tweeted at US Airways from someone and whoever was handling @USAirways accidentally included the image in their response.

“Our investigation has determined that the image was initially posted to our Twitter feed by another user. We captured the tweet to flag it as inappropriate. Unfortunately the image was inadvertently included in a response to a customer,” said spokesman Matt Miller.

“We deeply regret the mistake and we are currently reviewing our processes to prevent such errors in the future,” he added.

Which probably means Tuesday morning there’s going to be a mandatory meeting with Powerpoint slides that teach them how to use Twitter. Slides that say things like, “Vagina = NO, Airplanes not stuck in vaginas = YES.”
