Fans of the Liverpool Football Club bring the anti-Semitic hate

The Liverpool Football Club was forced to delete a tweet last night after daring to wish its Jewish fans a happy Rosh Hashanah:

Liverpool fans so abhorrent in their racist responses that @LFC have now deleted this tweet. Anti-Semitism is rife. pic.twitter.com/tEoNcHAYRF

Here are a few of the anti-Semitic and hateful responses that prompted Liverpool to delete its “happy new year” message:

@LFC: Liverpool FC would like to wish all our Jewish supporters around the world a happy new year. #RoshHashanah” Gas them

— JEY (@Rooney_LFC) September 25, 2014

And  here are some of the responses:

@LFCZA you seen @LFC sent Jewish NY greetings. Was met with barrage of racism & now tweet deleted. Easy to pander to racists. Not good

@LFC @LFC_Arabic @Officiallfc_id @PakistanLFC @MalaysiaLFC Why did you take off the Happy Jewish New Year tweet? Did you let racism win?

— Joel Kleinberg (@Joelinhorito) September 26, 2014

Yes, racism won.

@LFC When you deleted this you did not only turn back against Millions of Jewish fans, but also against the Israelis WHO PLAYED for the club

Greg Gutfeld’s first tweet was better than a lot of first tweets

Many Twitter debuts are boring, dry and of the “hey, is this thing on?” variety. But that wasn’t the case for Fox News host Greg Gutfeld. Twitter’s new shows us that his first tweet was … so very Greg Gutfeld.
