West tweeted it was a 30 out of ten.
The Virgin Australia tweet said: @kanyewest EAD you douche. EAD stands for ‘eat a d@ck”.
A statement issued by Virgin Australia denied any involvement.
“A recent tweet on our account was not published by a Virgin Australia employee and we are investigating the matter,” the statement said.
Far from offending people, Virgin Australia was briefly feted by the Twitter-verse following days of incessant tweets by West including a series directed at pop princess Taylor Swift.
The rivalry between the two mega-music stars ramped up a notch at the Grammy Awards, when Swift delivered a sly dig at West who had previously criticized her recognition by music’s version of the Oscars.
