Robbie Fowler risks backlash from Everton fans with recent Hillsborough tweet

Robbie Fowler took a thinly-veiled dig at the Everton fans after the airing of four-part ITV series titled Anne which talks about the Hillsborough disaster.

Anne Williams dedicated her life to finding out what happened to her son Kevin, who was among the 97 victims to have died in the 1989 tragedy.

On watching this, Fowler took to Twitter to write, “Maybe the ‘always the victims’ shout will disappear now #TheRealAnne #Hillsborough.”

However, Fowler, with such a large fan-following decided to make a tone-deaf tweet that completely misinterprets the Everton fanbase.

The club and their fans have always stood in solidarity with Liverpool for the disaster, which makes his comments, being a former player, all the more shocking.

No one from the Goodison Park faithful ever sings that song to mock Liverpool about the Hillsborough disaster.

We can’t believe that Fowler has decided to go public with this rather insensitive thought that he’s had.

The best thing he can do is take it down and apologise for such vile accusations directed at the fans of the rivals of his former employers.
