Spurs Apologise After Taunting Liverpool and Newcastle On Social Media

8 years ago

Spurs have been forced to apologise after their Twitter account was used last night to send out a message to over 800,000 people who follow them on this social media.

The north London club have been quick to distance themselves from the offensive tweet, claiming it wasn’t anybody to do with Spurs who had been responsible and citing a possible ‘security issue’.

The offending message went out after Liverpool threw away a three goal lead against Palace and read;

“Brutal but very funny. The biggest capitulation since Newcastle in the 90s.”

If this had been a random fan sending out a tweet then it obviously would have been seen as totally innocuous.

However, it shows the perils for football clubs of using social media and not just players causing offence through crass behaviour.

After deleting the offensive message, Spurs sent out further ones saying;

“We apologise to anyone offended by a recent tweet, which was immediately deleted. This post was not tweeted by anyone affiliated to THFC.”

“We are currently looking into a security issue where our official vine account has been compromised.”

Liverpool’s capitulation was of course…Brutally Funny!
