US Air Force apologises for Yanny/Laurel joke about killing people

The debate hits FOX Carolina

The Air Force has deleted a tweet referencing the viral Laurel/Yanny issue in regard to a deadly air strike in Afghanistan, admitting the tweet was in "poor taste".

On Thursday morning, the U.S. Air Force jumped on the never-ending "Laurel or Yanny" meme and took it to a really dark place, proving memes and military action just don't mix.

By Thursday afternoon, the tweet was replaced with an apology.

This week, Afghan National Defense and Security Forces, backed by U.S. Air Force A-10 aircraft, conducted an offensive against the Taliban in the government-controlled city of Farah in western Afghanistan.

He claims Offset then threatened him, and as he tried to calm the situation, was set on by three body guards. His pregnant fiance Cardi B reportedly rushed to be by his side following news of the accident.

"We apologize for the earlier tweet regarding the A-10", posted the Air Force on Twitter hours after the initial attempt at virality.

According to sound experts who spoke with the website the verge, the acoustic information that makes us hear "Yanny" is a higher frequency than the acoustic information that makes us hear "Laurel" and older adults tend to start losing their hearing at the higher frequency ranges.

The Taliban, according to the Air Force Times, is disputing the USA account - claiming that they breached Farah. In a statement, US officials said the A-10s did the job, as the officials said the Taliban's attempted raid was "unsuccessful".

The internet is up in arms about an audio clip where a computer-generated voice is either saying "Yanny" or "Laurel."
