England Cricket Fans Hijack Messaging Billboard To Post Twisted Jokes

England Cricket Fans Hijack Messaging Billboard To Post Twisted Jokes

The England cricket team have been having a terrible series in Indian, with the fourth test looking like it will be another loss for the three lions.

But the long-suffering 'Barmy Army' have found a pretty disgraceful way to vent their frustration at the team's performance, hijacking 'a fan messaging board' to post sick jokes about well-known criminals such as Adam Johnson and Josef Fritzl, as well as Madeleine McCann, among others.

Adam Johnson was given a six-year prison sentence earlier this year for child sex offences, but one fan posted the message: "Lovely to see so many young cricket fans here today! - Adam Johnson."

Madeleine McCann went missing when she was just three years old while on holiday with her parents in Portugal in 2007. But one person wrote: "So grateful for my parents to bring me to the Cricket! Great day so far :) - Madeleine McCann."

Elisabeth Fritzl was kept captive by her own father Josef for 24 years until 2008. But one message read: "I came here in memory of my father Josef, who loved to watch cricket with me in the basement in our home country, Austria - Elisabeth Fritzl."

There were also some political messages, with one fan pretending to be anti-immigration MEP and former UKIP leader Nigel Farage: "Great to see so many Indian faces... In India! :) C mon England! - Nigel Farage"

The billboard had offered fans the chance to text in and offer their support for the players on the field.

I doubt they'll be offering fans a chance to text in again any time soon.
