‘Danny, mate, I’ve got this great Chubby Brown joke about Africans…..’

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – clubs should ban their players from using Twitter – it’s becoming the ultimate source of high-profile faux-pas and own-goals, with our dearly beloved football players often Tweeting before they’ve engaged their brains.

Wayne Rooney is the latest star to make a major boo-boo, this time telling his fans on Twitter to follow one Roy ‘Chubby’ Brown, the infamous purveyor of racist, sexist and homophobic ‘humour’. Rooney’s Tweet, which has since been deleted, said:

“follow @RoyChubbsBrown he is hilarious. Follow if not easily offended haha.”

In light of all the recent Suarez/Evra shenanigans, the decision to big up someone like ‘Chubby’ Brown really does beggar belief. Whether or not the comedian himself is inherently racist/sexist/homophobic or simply playing a character isn’t really the point, either. His material is incredibly offensive and nasty and Rooney, an England star, has made an almighty howler.

I can hear them now, Liverpool fans up and down the country rising up, ready to reclaim (at least a bit) of the moral high-ground in the never-ending war of words with their Mancunian enemy.

But will we see United players warming up in “Free Wayne” t-shirts this weekend???

    I’m surprised he can spell at all.

  2. Ceezer says:

    I think the English media is a wee bit cunty. May I suggest a new section for Pies? You should have a section called “WGAS”, “who gives a shit” for some of these nothing stories and the gossip paper rubbish.

    All comedy is offensive, get over it. I don’t like Chubby Brown’s comedy but its that ..COMEDY, how uptight you gotta, jeez.

  4. ferguson and webb says:

    Idiot rooney born with ugly face.

  5. lfc_man says:

    I don’t know about the moral high ground with Man utd but does anyone not have the moral high ground against Rooney? Not surprised he would like a “infamous purveyor of racist, sexist and homophobic ‘humour’.”

    Wayne Rooney doesnt represent the views of Man u or England. Its a non story for me. Rooney is a moron, he doesnt need to tweet to prove it.

  6. Joe says:

    is Chubby Brown really that offensive?

  7. muppets says:

    Before this rooney’s reputation was untarnished and his moral standing could not be disputed. Right?

  8. Seb Cerami says:

    Riy Chubby Brown is a icon every where….during Jeff Stelings Middlesbrough Rant he mention how great Roy Chubby Brown is….why dont the media attack him. Its just bull, bull , bull , bull
    Royston Vasey is a hero and I personally love him and his humour. Did you mention that Roy had throat cancer. bet you didnt know he does a lot of work for charity. watch one of his dvds it will leave you in histerics.
    PS I dislike Rooney with a Passion.
    Jeff Stelling Rant if you havent seen it, if you havent, you must http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jO8yHVYof44

    PS im not retarded..Just Iphones predictive text is a Joke!

  10. Yassir says:

    Banning people from using Twitter is more ‘offensive’ to me than Roy Chubby Brown.

  11. Ben says:

    Was iPhone’s predictive text responsible for your opinions?

    Jesus wept, the man had throat cancer so…what, exactly? His bigotry is excusable? What a ludicrous argument.

  12. garza says:

    Putting Rooney and moral high ground in the same sentence is funny.

  13. Anchorman ^ says:

    If you dont like it then dont listen, society and this generation is changed. I love his humour, the jokes are well thought out and can be extremely banterous

  14. Rob says:

    Any chance someone out there could come up with software that people without Twitter accounts can get to filter all stories about other people’s “Tweets” ? I’d buy it.

  15. Mr. Chopper says:

    “Banterous”? Jesus.

  16. Jarren says:

    At least it wasn’t Jim Davidson.
