Wayne Rooney threatens Twitter follower

Manchester United star Wayne Rooney was involved in a fresh controversy when he threatened a follower on Twitter in response to the latter’s abusive comments.

The Twitter follower, whose account was later deleted, abused Rooney by posting the following tweet

“Rooney ya fat whore ill smash ya head in with a pitchin wedge an bury ya with a ballast fork ya fat ugly lil n***e.”

In response, the incensed Rooney, whose penalty last weekend against Blackburn sealed the crown for United, replied back. What Rooney said to the abusive follower on Twitter doesn’t make for pretty reading, but neither did the former’s original taunt at the United striker.

Rooney is not the first United player to have problems recently on Twitter. Midfielder Darron Gibson closed his account within two hours of joining because of abusive tweets directed his way.

“I will put u asleep within 10 seconds hope u turn up if u don’t gonna tell everyone ur scared u little nit. I’ll be waiting. Don’t say stuff and not follow up on it. I’ll be waiting.”

Rooney later tried to pass off the exchange of Twitter messages as light banter by tweeting the following message

“Haha bit of banter and people go nuts chill all people.”
