BA apologises after offensive tweet

British Airways’ Twitter account hacked into

The official British Airways Twitter account appeared to re-tweet a racist message on Saturday afternoon. BA has launched an investigation into the incident, which it says happened after its Twitter account was hacked, leaving it open for the offensive message to be tweeted. The message, which had been sent to more than 210,000 followers, was quickly deleted by BA staff and a tweet of apology followed.
“Apologies for the last RT. We are sorry for any offence caused and are investigating how this may have happened,” the apology stated.
