Jordan Williams Tweet

 

Liverpool youngster Jordan Williams, currently on loan at Swindon Town, became encircled in a Twitter storm last night after he was accused by angry fans for referencing the Munich air disaster on his social media account.

The 20 year old defensive midfielder posted an emoticon of a plane in response to a retweet of fans celebrating Liverpool’s 3-1 aggregate victory over their rivals Manchester United in the Europa League.

The tweet, which paired an applause emoticon with the plane, was understood by many to be a cryptic allusion to the Munich air disaster in which eight United players and 11 others tragically died in 1958.

 

 

There were numerous angry responses from the general public, including a number of Liverpool fans who were embarrassed and upset with Williams’ behaviour:

 

 

 

Indeed following the immediate backlash, the tweet subsequently disappeared, with Williams claiming that his account had been hacked.

 

“My Twitter has been hacked, I would never put anything like that to offend anyone, sorry about this.”

Williams’ Twitter page was quickly deactivated just moments after the initial post.
