Sara implies that the subtiles 'ruined' her date last night (she asked for a refund on part of her ticket cost).
The tweets that were so offending to people have been deleted from her timeline.
Sara did not help herself further by calling those who complained that they were 'gob******'.
Here are the offending comments RT'd by others along with the twitpic photo:

- — charleswrites (@charleswrites)Wed, Jul 20 2011 08:17:30@sarajcox So seeing as there are screencaps of your deleted tweets, I think you've got no option but to apologise, either here or on-air.
- But some of the feed from last night clearly shows the anger and upset caused by 'thoughtless' tweets:
- — charlie_swin (@charlie_swin)Tue, Jul 19 2011 22:45:06@sarajcox see usually, it's advertised and when deafies turn up, the subtitles don't work. Kind of ironic that the reverse pissed you off.

- — charlie_swin (@charlie_swin)Tue, Jul 19 2011 22:44:09Yeah, obviously we're the gobshites! MT @sarajcox: For all you gobshites we checked online & it didn't mention [subtitles]
- With twitter we take the good with the bad and that includes people's comments which many of us will see as complete lack of awareness of Deaf issues:
