Twitter isn't loving Band Aid 30's questionable #E30LA hashtag

Pull over, world. We’re stepping out for some air.

YESTERDAY BOB GELDOF officially announced that a Band Aid 30 would be going ahead. 30 years after the original, a range of stars will re-record Do They Know It’s Christmas? to benefit the fight against Ebola.

The line up includes One Direction, Adele, Chris Martin, Bono, Foals, Ed Sheeran and Elbow. Lyrics will be changed to reflect the current Ebola crisis, and the track should be available to download by Monday.

Oh dear.
