Delta Airlines got a backlash of tweets on Monday for a photo it tweeted after the United States’ win over Ghana in the FIFA World Cup. The tweet (shown below) showed the final score of the game, 2-1, with a photo of the Statue of Liberty next to the U.S. score and a photo of a giraffe next to the Ghana score. However, Ghana doesn’t have any native giraffes. Since the backlash, Delta has deleted its tweet and offered an apology.
I mean, there’s probably a zoo in Ghana with a giraffe. — Josh Barro (@jbarro) June 17, 2014
We’re sorry for our choice of photo in our previous tweet. Best of luck to all teams. — Delta (@Delta) June 17, 2014
So keep in mind that there are no giraffes in Ghana, Delta!
