Lingard in hot water after adding brand logo to Manchester bombing tribute post

Jesse Lingard had his team delete a social media post after paying tribute to the victims of the Manchester bombing in 2017.

While Lingard himself hardly meant any harm with the post, someone should have advised the Manchester United midfielder not to add the ‘JLingz’ brand logo to his tribute for those who lost their live during the terror attack.

Of course, he’s a Manchester lad. This tragic event would have hit home for Lingard like he did for the rest of us — Mancunian or not, if you’re human you’re human.

But adding the ‘JLingz’ logo was a bit tacky and they rightly removed it from Lingard’s accounts.

It must be said that we don’t think Lingard was in any way responsible for the post. Perhaps that’s naive on our part, but how many United players do you think run their own social media? I’d imagine very few.

Fans on Twitter were quick to show their disapproval.
