Must not even hint that a woman is fat

A suggestion that a British footballer could do better than his current girlfriend arouses great ire



An Australian sports betting website sent a misogynistic tweet about the girlfriend of young Manchester United star James Wilson, causing an angry backlash on social media.

The Odds Checker Au Twitter account posted a photo on Thursday afternoon of the footballer holding hands with his partner.

'Sure she's a lovely girl but someone needs to remind James Wilson he's a pro footballer. Start abusing this privilege,' Odds Checker Au tweeted.

The post was published at about 2pm on Thursday and sparked a series of angry tweets from disgusted Twitter followers.

'@OddscheckerAu This is so rude I can't believe anyone thought it was OK to post it. You are garbage people. Disgusting,' Petra Starke wrote.  'Delete this, then seriously reprimand whoever ok'd it. @OddscheckerAu,' Jay tweeted.

The Odds Checker Au tweet has since been taken down and was replaced with an apology.  'Apologies for the offence caused by our earlier Tweet - it's now been deleted,' Odds Checker Au wrote.

Wilson, 19, is a striker for Manchester United after joining the team in July 2012.

Odds Checker, an online betting odds comparison service, is part of British company Sky Betting and Gaming.

What a bunch of arseholes. Just because he is now a celebrity in the football world he should ditch a beautiful woman for some tart like Kim Kardashian is beyond belief. I am Australian and will advise all my friends to boycott the bastards. As far as I am concerned an apology is not good enough.
