London, Sep 9: Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor was sent death threats and shocking abuse from One Direction fans after he accidentally inflicted an injury on their band member Louis Tomlinson.
According to the Mirror, the pair was playing in Stiliyan Petrov’s game for charity at Celtic Park when the 26-year-old forward tackled the singer.
It was a fair challenge from the Villa man, but Tomlinson was injured and his notoriously, over-excited fans took to Twitter to send Agbonlahor abuse and threats, even though the account in question appears to be a fake, the report said.
One fan told Agbonlahor she would ‘chop his balls off,’ while another threatened to kill him if he didn’t apologise, the report added.
On leaving the pitch, the boyband star then vomited, further provoking the ire of his loyal band of Internet abusers, the report further said. (ANI)
