Charlie Austin launches foul-mouthed social media rant blasting Southampton fans as ‘s***’ and labelling one supporter a ‘cheeky c**nt’
Feb. 16, 2020
Charlie Austin launched an expletive-ridden rant on social media on Saturday night in which he branded the Southampton fanbase as ‘sh**’.
The 30-year-old, who joined West Brom in a £4million deal from Saints last summer, even labelled one fan a ‘cheeky c**nt’ in response to someone on social media.
Quoting a post about the dangers of social media, Austin wrote: “Couldn’t agree more it’s a f****** joke, gives people and companies a platform to say what they like without any remorse… think before you speak/tweet/post.”
But a Southampton fan hit back at the Baggies striker, saying: “Difficult to get behind a striker who couldn’t run five minutes without huffing and puffing Chaz! Big mouth for a man who accelerates slower than a 50 tonne lorry on an icy slope.
“Blame the club that paid your wages and supports your kids instead of yourself. WHAT A ROLE MODEL.”
In response, Austin said: “Oh they didn’t support my kids you cheeky c***, I support my family so relax your comments about them! Fire them at me but not them!! I’m all for fan/player banter but your fan base is s***!!”
Another fan quote-tweeted Austin’s initial post and said: “Didn’t think when you insulted our whole fanbase and club did it tho chazza #Saintsfc”.
And the English forward continued his furious rage and replied: “You’re s*** fans, you don’t sing to get behind the team, only when they score, never when they need a boost.”
One supporter replied: “Classy as ever Charlie.”
Austin was an unused sub for West Brom in the 2-2 draw at home to Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
The Midlands club are currently top of the Championship, four points clear of second-placed Leeds.
