Michael O'Leary does Twitter Q&A with predictably awful results
If you check the hashtag #GrillMOL, there's loads of bile and, obviously, O'Leary didn't realise that his inappropriate responses could be seen by all and sundry. His first comment to a lady was "Nice pic. Phwoaaarr! MOL", with people telling him bluntly that he was looking rather sexist.
His response? "Just found out what hashtags are. Learning on da job! Always compliment ladies pics".
Naturally, many questions fired his way weren't exactly pleasant. One said: "Were you born an arsehole or has it progressed throughout your life?" Another said; "I've sent one #GrillMOL tweet to @Ryanair and already an invoice for £18.50. Or £18.25 if I take their credit card." Another spat: "What type of people do you enjoy mistreating most? I’m guessing elderly and disabled?"
One person tweeted: "Is there any truth in the rumour that you plan to charge passengers for each inhalation they make after take off?" to which O'Leary replied: "Hi Beth, great idea. Have a team workin' on it as we breathe!"
Others were more serious: "Due to fly to Riga on Saturday but can’t go as my mum in law is losing her cancer battle. 388 quid to re-book seems unfair."
One question that went unanswered: "Will you be looking for a new social media manager tomorrow?"
