The Top Sports World Responses To The Raunchy U.S. Airways Tweet (With Updates)
Earlier today U.S. Airways tweeted out a very raunchy photo — inappropriate even if you live on a pirate ship — for all the word to see. It showed a woman, um, pleasuring herself with a model airplane (see it here if you must), and was up for nearly an hour before being removed. Twitter of course went nuts, and those in the world of sports — mostly in the media — were at the forefront.
Here now, the best sports-related Twitter responses to the U.S. Airways tweet.

And the plane, hopefully. RT @USAirways: We apologize for an inappropriate image shared in one of our responses. We’ve removed the tweet.

This U.S. Airways deal can't be an accident. There is a plane in the picture, so clearly angry social media intern, right?

I could have gone my whole life without seeing that u.s. airways photo hit my timeline.

Here's hoping CNN does not go 24/7 on today's US Airways plane story.

In U.S. Airways defense, there wasn't a clearly defined landing strip.

That's a pretty innovative de-icing routine, US Airways.
