The official Twitter account of the military branch posted a video juxtaposing New Years Eves annual Times Square ball drop with their own stealth bombers and their nuclear capability.
The tweet noted, If ever needed, we are #ready to drop something much, much bigger. An accompanying video in the tweet cuts to a shot of a stealth fighter jet dropping what appear to be two thermonuclear bombs.
The resulting uproar led to a quick apology and deleted tweet and video.
Our previous NYE tweet was in poor taste & does not reflect our values. We apologize. We are dedicated to the security of America & allies.
