Airlines might delay your flight, hit you with extra fees, or even lose your bags—but they are almost always, unfailingly, polite. 

Unless, of course, you’re Kanye West. Then you can eat a dick.

The tweet, which was soon deleted, came from the official account of Virgin Australia (but not, the airline insisted, from one of their employees).

Based on public reaction, they may as well have left the tweet up.

Sounds like Virgin won’t face serious consequences for the incident. It’s just a good thing they didn’t say that to Taylor Swift.

Still, the mystery remains. Who sent the totally non-controversial tweet? An employee who thought they were using their personal account? A teenager who got ahold of his mom’s phone? A bored member of Anonymous?

Whoever it was can step out of the closet now. It turns out you aren’t in trouble at all.
