The Speed is essential Twitter account has issued an apology for some “recent social media replies” that “crossed the line.” These responses, which included the insult “Milkshake brain,” were posted in response to another Twitter user who was criticizing the game’s paid-for early access. Although the questionable responses have been removed, screenshots of them were taken.
Need for Speed Twitter account’s rude tweets
We have to admit that we got caught up with the launch hype, and some of the recent social media responses went over the line. We apologise to all those who were upset. We promise to do better. We look forward to seeing you next week.

The above tweet was posted after a particularly nasty interaction between the game’s Twitter account manager and user @KyloZen0.
Responding to an NFS Tweet that included both a gameplay video and an advertisement for the game’s more expensive Palace Edition, @KyloZen0 criticized the latter for providing three days of early access at a price premium.
The Need for Speed Twitter account responded with tweets criticizing @KyloZen0’s reading comprehension, before labeling them a “Milkshake brain” and telling them to “Cry about it bro.”
