On Thursday, Liverpool football club showed their true colours once again as their official twitter account seemed to mock the Munich air disaster after asking for song requests.
Liverpool supporters were asked to tweet the official twitter account @LFC 3 songs to be played over at Anfield before Sunday’s clash with Manchester United.
One of the very first responses was from Liverpool supporter @JoshMitchy_ who requested
- ‘Come Fly With Me’ by Frank Sinatra
- ‘Always Look on the Bright Side of Life’ by Eric Idle
- ‘I Like to Move It’ by Reel to Reel.
Songs that Liverpool supporters sign from the terraces each week to mock Manchester United and the Munich air disaster, such as ‘I like to Munich, Munich..’
@LFC responded to these song requests with:
“Have you been sneaking a look at the dressing room iPod?”
Liverpool has since deleted the tweets and an internal investigation launched.
Liverpool apologised today in a statement to the Manchester Evening News, stating:
“Liverpool Football Club responded quickly to correct the error of judgement that was made last night on it’s official Twitter account in responding to a distasteful and inappropriate Tweet. The Club took decisive action and the comment was deleted swiftly.
“We apologise, unreservedly, for any offence that was caused by this mistake.”
