Well, it looks like we can add Virgin Australia to the growing list of people who don’t like Kanye West. Although not an actual “person” per se, the airline did send out a tweet shading Kanye’s entire life, thus they can definitely be added to the list.
Following Yeezy’s declaration that his new album, The Life of Pablo, is not a 9 out of 10 as Pitchfork suggested, but that it’s actually a 30 out of 10, Virgin had, had enough. Then, this happened.
If we’re giving VA the benefit of the doubt, then we could consider that they’re social media manager thought they were logged into their personal account. But it’s much funnier to believe that the airline just hates ‘Ye. BTW, “EAD” means “eat a d*ck”.
The company deleted the tweet almost immediately and issued this statement.
“A recent tweet on our account was not published by a Virgin Australia employee and we are investigating the matter. We apologize for any offense caused.”
