It’s not rare for Android phone makers to ridicule Apple through their social media and marketing campaigns, but the recent diss aimed at the Cupertino giant from Huawei’s Brazil Twitter account was a little off.
Accompanied with expletives, the tweet called out, “Hey Apple,” before ending with, “We are the best!”
The obscene post can be found in the screen capture below:
In addition to the anti-Apple post, the account also mocked impoverished people living in Brazil for not being able to afford Huawei smartphones, as reported by Softpedia News.
The tweets have since been taken down. Huawei claims its Brazilian account was hacked, and that it would punish malicious parties behind the incident.
Softpedia News, however, declares it was a “very convenient hack,” as whoever had access to the account criticized a competitor rather than Huawei itself.
This isn’t the first time Huawei’s Twitter account has been entwined in controversy with Apple. Earlier this year, Huawei was discovered to have tweeted from an iPhone, later demoting employees who had sent out the post.
