Score another social media fail for ebaY, as ebaY India’s Official twitter account was hacked and an apparently inappropriate multi syllable phrase posted.
Ebay India issued a tweet with regards to the situation:
The eBay India official handle was hacked and an inappropriate tweet was posted. We apologize for the offense caused and are reporting…—
eBay India (@ebayindia) January 02, 2013
The exact nature of the phrase was completely lost in translation here, however, twitter is abuzz with it.
Here’s the obligatory screencapture:

We’ll show one fitting comedy reply here.
I’m wondering whether this may start a trend for 2013? LoLz!
