Delta’s tweet celebrating the USA’s 2‑1 win over Ghana in the World Cup today consists of two beautiful images. Unfortunately for the person who posted it, the lovely giraffe is nowhere to be found in Ghana. (Maybe they have one or two in a zoo?)

Who ever is behind this @Delta tweet is dumber than giraffe dung. What have Ghana and Giraffes got in common? Oponu.

Here’s Delta’s second attempt at an apology. (The first read “precious tweet” instead of “previous tweet.”)
We're sorry for our choice of photo in our previous tweet. Best of luck to all teams.
