US Airways became the target of online mockery after it responded to a complaint with a graphic sexual image on its Twitter feed, Jalopnik reported on Monday.

The photo showed a naked woman with a toy airplane inserted into her vagina. The picture, which Deadspin reported was actually taken from a Twitter complaint against American Airlines, was online for 22 minutes before the company took it down. The airline has said it is investigating the incident. Reactions to the photo have been swift and, well, generally hilarious.
