The X account of the popular video game Angry Birds landed in a controversy after reportedly posting an explicit tweet with sexual connotations toward children. Shortly after, the makers of the popular video game issued an apology on X, saying that it was 'genuine mistake,' and they 'deeply regret' it.
"We sincerely apologize for an unfortunate incident that occurred on our account," the Angry Bird X account said in an apology. "Recently, an inappropriate post was accidentally reposted from the account. This was a genuine mistake, and we deeply regret any harm it may have caused."
The original retweet was eventually deleted, and as a result it is not clear what the tweet was about. Some X users reported that it was about children pleasuring themselves to angry bird toys. However, we could not verify such claims, or the exact nature of the tweet.
SEGA, the Japanese gaming giant, has acquired Rovio Entertainment, the Finnish mobile-game studio behind the popular 'Angry Birds' series. The deal was agreed upon on April 17, 2023, and was completed by August 18, 2023.
The acquisition cost SEGA approximately about $776 million. This move is part of SEGA’s strategy to strengthen its position in the global gaming market, projected to grow to $263.3 billion by 2026.
"Probably just didn't read the full tweet, saw the part that said 'I love angry birds, bought all toys,' etc and retweeted. You make the mistake of thinking the social media intern cares deeply about what people are saying about Angry Birds," one user wrote in response to the tweet.
"LRT: “The official Angry Birds Twitter account, after its acquisition by Sega, posting a public apology after accidentally retweeting a tweet about someone pleasuring themselves to Angry Birds” is a hell of a sentence," another said.
"I’m not being satirical. Imagine if Nintendo reposted a tweet like that," said one.
"Some guy posted a tweet tagging Angry Birds saying he likes jerking off to AngryBirds. Well AngryBirds Retweeted the Post ???♂?," added another.
