Liverpool youngster Neco Williams blacked out his social media after receiving horrific abuse following his error against Lincoln City.
The Reds smashed Lincoln 7-2 in the Carabao Cup on Thursday to set up a tie against Arsenal.
But Liverpool's dominant performance failed to impress some fans who ruthlessly mocked Williams on Twitter.
The Welshman was targetted with online abuse after making a mistake during his side's comfortable victory.
He lost possession on the wing for Lincoln's first goal as Tayo Edun tucked home in the 60th minute.
The error did not prove costly as Liverpool secured passage to the next round.
Though Liverpool supporters inexplicably abused the 19-year-old, who reacted by blacking out his social media following the result.
Shortly after blacking out his account on Twitter, Williams was flooded with messages of support.
Anyone who have sent abuse to Neco Williams are not proper fans and are scum. He's 19, played a handful of games for us and getting criticised over 1 minor error in 7-2 win ffs.- Samue (@SamueILFC) September 25, 2020

Each and everyone of you who are abusing Neco Williams, not only are you denting the confidence of a very young and promising lad, but you all are also a part of a problem for the entire human race and you people are absolute knobs. Fuck each & everyone of you lot.- FantasticFirmino9 (@MPBFirmino9) September 25, 2020

Neco Williams blacking out his social media due to abuse is heart breaking. He is 19. If you think abusing a kid or any player for that matter makes you a better person, you just wasnt raised right. Be better & show some maturity.- LFC Views - Champions (@Mobyhaque1) September 25, 2020
All those slating Neco Williams for a mistake. Virgil Van Dijk, best centre back in the world right now, had a howler against Leeds defensively on the opening day. It can happen to anyone- Robert Williams :flag_black: #UTST (@WxmRob) September 25, 2020
Williams' outing in the cup was his second appearance of the season following his showing in the Community Shield.
He played six Premier League games last season after making his top flight debut against Crystal Palace in June.
