Delta Airlines' Giraffe Gaffe Is Funniest Social Media Storyline Of The World Cup So Far

  • Rick Chandler

When the U.S. beat Ghana on Monday, the guy manning the Delta Airlines Twitter feed snapped into action and sent out the tweet you see below. Turns out, however, that there are no giraffes in Ghana … Delta dude was assuming that, hey, it’s Africa, so giraffes and lions and gorillas and stuff. Awk-ward.

After some social media blowback, Delta quickly deleted the tweet, and then apologized.

OK Twitter … GO.

Hey, you get my bags to the same place I’m traveling, and let others do the zoology, OK, Delta?
