Liverpool's USA Twitter Account Deletes 9/11 Graphic (PICTURE)

Liverpool have suffered another social media embarrassment after the club's United States Twitter account deleted a 9/11 graphic.

A message saying, “You’ll never walk alone America” was posted with the Twin Towers and two red Liver birds stood either side.

Following a stream of criticism from Twitter users the post was deleted hours later without any explanation.

The graphic generated a stream of criticism

The US account was accused of hijacking the grief on the twelfth anniversary of the al-Qaeda terrorist attacks which claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 people.

Last month, the club apologised for endorsing a tweet which mocked the 1958 Munich air crash, when eight Manchester United players were killed.
