Brazil 2014: Fans descend on Delta Airlines for depicting Ghana with a giraffe


Football fans have descended heavily on US airline, Delta Airline after it depicted Ghana with a photo of a giraffe.

The airline tweeted the photo after the USA beat Ghana 2-1 in the second Group G game at the ongoing 2014 World Cup in Natal’s Estadio Das Dunas stadium in Brazil.

Delta Airlines tweeted a photo of a giraffe depicting Ghana while they used a photo of the Statue of Liberty to depict the USA.

This did not go down well with some Ghanaian fans, who were still grappling with the painful defeat.

A fan responded: “This is the boolsheet us Africans gotta deal with. There are no giraffe in Ghana, you narrow-minded nincompoops! @Delta FAIL!”

Another also tweeted: “You can book flights to Accra, the capital of Ghana, on @delta’s website. Do not take those flights. They will end up in the Serengati”

“.@delta Ghana’s really more well known for their Clymene Dolphins than giraffes, but that’s just me checking Wikipedia for three seconds,” a third fan said.  “Delta currently airlifting a giraffe into Ghana”. 

After the hash responses, the airline quickly deleted the photo a rendered an apology to the peeved fans.

“We’re sorry for our choice of photo in our previous tweet. Best of luck to all teams,” Delta tweeted.
