fatal: could not read Username for '': No such device or address

After creating a bash script to pull updates, it is unable to do so, giving me the error in the title. I use the same username I enter manually (which works, just not in the script).

# Pulls from remote repo and implements changes

su - rails -c "cd /var/www/myapp/code;
git pull;
expect \"sername for '':\";
send \"Morganja95\";
expect \"assword for '':\";
send \"password\";
interact" # Now that the final command's ran,
# we'll auto - exit the subshell

cd /var/www/myapp/code
RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake assets:clobber
RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake assets:precompile
nginx -t && sudo nginx -s reload
