British Gas have annoyed a lot of people with their David Bowie tweet

British Gas have annoyed a lot of people with their David Bowie tweet.

It may not have escaped your attention that today is a year since David Bowie died. #RipDB and #RipDavidBowie are trending on twitter, and a lot of people are honouring his death.

One such person is British Gas Help, who also thought they'd tweet their own bizarre tribute to the music legend.

People were quite annoyed by a lot of things in the tweet, including "poor taste", even worse spelling, and "hikacking" a celebrity death in order to "get some PR".

They've since spent the morning trying (with varying degrees of success) to deal with Bowie fans livid with them for the tweet, as well as for gas problems they're having.

And admitting they can't spell...

But generally apologising profusely...

Even though a lot of other people don't really see anything wrong with the tweet.
