The wife of Liverpool owner John W Henry, Linda Pizzuti, is tired of fans trolling her on Twitter and today couldn’t help but reply to one.
In fairness, the supporter didn’t say anything too offensive, but judging by Pizzuti’s reply, he consistently abuses her and @JOZ9T9’s last tweet was clearly the final straw.
@JOZ9T9 You are the most persistent abuser, why do you do it? I have supported LFC for years. Should I not use twitter bc “fans” like you harass me?

Twitter is a brilliant medium, but unfortunately, its quality is diminished by idiots. We call them idiots, but they’re probably just kids who are doing exactly what we’d be doing if we had such a channel available during our teenage years.
This is the conundrum, as we’re pretty sure @JOZ9T9 wouldn’t walk up to anyone in FSG in the street and start shouting his mouth off…
For this reason, Pizzuti probably shouldn’t have replied, as it’s now created a newsworthy story which draws attention when really we should be focussing solely on the team’s pursuit of a top four finish.
Henry himself rarely tweets, but when he does, it’s magic. His 2013 message to Arsenal regarding their £40m+£1 for Luis Suarez is iconic, as is his ‘Oh, and SIGN REUS!’ classic.
