The official Twitter handle of the club made and error in judgement.
Ahead of the Liverpool v Manchester United match on Sunday, the club’s official Twitter handle has had to release an apology after a tweet about the Munich Air Disaster.
The club asked the fans via the social networking site to name which song should be played over the tannoy during the Premier League clash.
One supporter responded with three songs aimed to mock the eight Manchester United players that died in 1958, when the plane they were on in Munich crashed at the end of an icy runway.
The tracks were ‘Come Fly With Me’ by Frank Sinatra, ‘Always Look on the Bright Side’ from Monty Python’s film Life of Brian and ‘I Like to Move it’ by Reel 2 Real.
The Monty Python song has been adapted by some at Anfield who chant, ‘Always Look on the Runway for Ice’ while Reel 2 Real’s dance track has been switched to ‘I Like to Munich, Munich’
Yet despite the clear offensive nature of these versions of the originals, the Reds handle chose to tweet back with; “Have you been sneaking a look at the dressing room iPod?,” reports the Guardian.
Over 1.9million people follow the account and after many comments damning the tweet, it was deleted.
The Merseyside outfit have since apologised for the tweet.
“Liverpool Football Club responded quickly to correct the error of judgment that was made last night on it’s official Twitter account in responding to a distasteful and inappropriate tweet,” a statement from the club was quoted by the Guardian.
“The club took decisive action and the comment was deleted swiftly.
“We apologise, unreservedly, for any offence that was caused by this mistake.”
As yet no apology has been made on Twitter however.
