Ahead of Sunday’s game at Anfield, Liverpool’s official Twitter account was joining in with jokes about the Munich Air Disaster with one of their fans.
The club were quick to offer an apology, calling the tweet an “error of judgement” as well as “distasteful and inappropriate”.
Can you imagine the reaction from the scousers if the official United account was taking the piss out of Hillsborough?
Whilst fans of both clubs have been guilty of poor behaviour in the past in regards to chants about disasters, it’s quite incredible that the club’s official mouthpiece was having a laugh about Munich.
