Ryanair takes brutal swipe at Elon Musk after his ex-wife gets engaged to Love Actually star Thomas Brodie-Sangster

Ryanair takes brutal swipe at Elon Musk after his ex-wife gets engaged to Love Actually star Thomas Brodie-Sangster

The budget airline is back at it again

Ryanair have taken a brutal swipe at Elon Musk after his ex-wife announced her engagement to Love Actually’s Thomas Brodie-Sangster.

Talulah Riley was married to the Tesla CEO twice, the first time was from 2010 to 2012 and the another from 2013 to 2016.

The pair first met in a bar in 2008 and had their original wedding in a UK cathedral.

She’s since called him the ‘perfect ex husband’ and spoken about their positive relationship after marriage.

Thanking Musk in the acknowledgements for her 2018 book, The Quickening, Riley said: “We are in a happy place now, where we’re good to each other, which is really nice. I have here utmost love for him.”

And admitting two marriages in one decade might ‘seem strange’ she explained to The Independent: “I suppose the reason to get remarried was just because it felt silly to be together unmarried after having been married.

I wonder if Elon Musk even knows what Ryanair is.

"You know, it’s like a habit. We were saying ‘this is my husband.’ ‘This is my wife.’ ‘Oh, wait, no, we’re not that anymore. We better be that again. You know, it felt silly to go back to ‘this is my boyfriend’ when we’ve been married. So, we just got married again."

Earlier this week, the St Trinian’s actor announced her and Brodie-Sangster’s engagement.

The couple met while working on the series Pistol in 2021, where they played real-life couple, fashion designers Vivienne Westwood and Malcom McLaren.

Rumours of Brodie-Sangster and Riley dating quickly began to spin and they were Instagram official by June 2022.

While the Maze Runner star posted the announcement to Instagram, Riley shared a snap of the pair to Musk’s platform, which he thinks we are all causally calling ‘X’ after the rebrand. Of course we are.

She wrote: “Very happy to share that after two years of dating, Thomas Brodie Sangster and I are engaged!”

And her ex-husband even responded with a ‘congratulations’ and red love-heart.

But pretty embarrassingly, he’s been brutally torn up for this comment by none other than Ryanair.

The budget UK airline has a thing for making savage comments on the social media site, such as comebacks for passengers complaining about legroom or a lack of window.

It quote tweeted an article sharing that Musk had responded to Riley’s engagement, which read: “Elon Musk congratulates his ex-wife on getting engaged to the Love Actually kid.”

Taking a swipe at Musk, Ryanair wrote: “By rebranding an entire social media platform.”

Users gave a ‘bravo’ to the tweet, with one person calling it ‘brutal’, while another simply said: “Where is the lie.”
