Jamie Carragher Tweet Caused Man To Get 50,000 Whatsapp Messages

Jamie Carragher Tweet Caused Man To Get 50,000 Whatsapp Messages

Jamie Carragher committed the cardinal sin of taking to social media whilst he was drunk at the weekend, all to make fun of Gary Neville, but his post had consequences for someone else.

Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher are a delight to watch as pundits. The former rivals have turned into colleagues with the wonderful kind of friendship where they're constantly taking the mick out of each other.

On Sunday there was the perfect opportunity for the former Liverpool defender to mock the former Manchester United defender when Neville played in the Treble Reunion match.

The former right back had a chance to score in the game but his effort went wide. That led bookmakers Paddy Power to tweet odds of Carragher posting the video.

However Carragher soon revealed he wasn't in the country and then posted a phone number to get everyone to send him the video.

However the number wasn't Carraghers and nor, as many thought at the time, was it Neville's and was actually a 'random' number.

The number belonged to Scott Forsyth who ended up getting a lot of phone calls and texts before 'Carra' deleted the tweet. Speaking to BBC News Scott explained the incident, saying:

"I was driving home and my phone wouldn't stop ringing and I started panicking thinking it was some kind of virus. I was expecting to hear by phone if I had been successful in getting a job as I had been to an interview.

"I have no way of contacting these people so I'm just hoping they email me.

"I answered one of the calls and someone asked if I was on Twitter - I checked Twitter and that's when I realised what was going on.

"I've had people asking me for Champions League final tickets and others asking if my Geordie accent is real.

"Part of me is annoyed but part of me can see the funny side."

And Scott did a thread of some of the messages he'd received thanks to people's misunderstanding about it being Carragher or Neville's number:

That's why you've got to be careful what you tweet when you're drunk.
