CARLSBERG today scrapped a promotion with The Sun newspaper after a furious backlash from Liverpool fans.The Danish brewer had planned to link up with the tabloid newspaper to give readers a free pint over this month’s bank holiday weekend.
But the move was met with derision from some Liverpool fans, who were angry the club’s shirt sponsor was working with a newspaper hated by many in Merseyside.Reds’ supporters still boycott The Sun because of its coverage of the 1989 Hillsborough disaster, in which 96 Liverpool fans died.
Well done to Carlsberg. The SCUM newspaper is indeed hated on Merseyside, I don't know why newsagents even bother to put it on their stands. Not only is this paper a money grabbing opportunistic comic, but recently on this site we pointed out that it sells Nazi third Reich memorabilia totally disrespecting our war heroes from the second world war. I will never buy or look at this comic for the rest of my days.
