Media agency Carat has tweeted saying an employee was behind the Virgin Australia’s tweet to Kanye West telling him “EAD (eat a dick), you douche.”

The original tweet accidentally posted from the Virgin Airlines account, which has over 210,000 followers, came after Yeezy complained that Pitchfork should have rated his album 30/10 instead of 9/10.

EADThe tweet was quickly deleted, with Virgin Australia tweeting:

The social media rumour-mill kicked into overdrive, with some people claiming Virgin had been hacked or aren’t big Yeezy fans. Turns out, an employee at media agency Carat is behind the oopsie:

“The staff member responsible is still working with us and we are assessing a suitable course of disciplinary action with them,” a Carat representative told B&T.

In all fairness, West has been a bit of a douche with the promotion of his latest album The Life Of Pablo, including starting an Twitter argument with Wiz Khalifa after the rapper attacked Yeezy’s new album title

Here are just some of the insane stuff West has tweeted in the past few weeks:
