“Today I received my Airpods from Amazon. Oh, my God, these things are so big,” she wrote on Twitter. “I received AirPods from Amazon last month. I know they’re fake, because Amazon sells something weird and it’s not expensive. I’m shocked but not lying…” she added.
According to the New York Post, the woman spent nearly $62 (about 227.73 dirhams) on fake AirPods, which typically retail for more than three times that price.
Her post, accompanied by a photo of a giant AirPods, has been retweeted more than 72,000 times.
Most netizens liken fake AirPods to hair dryers. “Most people say it’s a hair dryer. But I call it ‘eardryer’,” she said.
Amazon did not comment on her tweets and reports, but the tweet was later deleted, saying it contained “potentially sensitive content.”
