Liverpool delete crass 9/11 tweet
Liverpool have deleted a September 11 tribute tweet showing two Liver birds emerging from the smoking Twin Towers.
As we reported yesterday, the club’s official American Twitter account, @LFCUSA, posted the image, which was accompanied by the slogan: “You’ll Never Walk Alone America.”
The message was retweeted by the club’s official account, @LFC.
The image was posted yesterday afternoon, but was removed at some point overnight.
While Reds supporters rallied around the club’s decision to post the image in the comments section of our original article, it would appear that the club has had a rethink about whether it was appropriate.
That’s purely conjecture at this stage as Liverpool have not yet responded to our requests for an explanation as to why the tweet was removed.
It is the second time the Reds have been forced to delete an embarrassing Twitter post in just a couple of weeks. They were forced to remove a tweet that appeared to endorse comments mocking the Munich Air Disaster.
