The U.S. Air Force issued an apology Thursday for a tweet “made in poor taste” that praised a mission against Taliban forces while referencing a viral audio clip.
We apologize for the earlier tweet regarding the A-10. It was made in poor taste and we are addressing it internally. It has since been removed.

The now-deleted tweet said that “Taliban Forces in Farah city #Afghanistan would much rather have heard” the “#Yanny or #Laurel” audio clip than the deafening sound of “#BRRRT” from an A-10 jet.
