Apparently, James Wilson's girlfriend isn't hot enough to date him

An Australian betting company has come under fire for mocking the girlfriend of Manchester United starlet James Wilson on Twitter.

Oddschecker AU tweeted an unflattering picture of the striker and his better half Frankie Barwell with the caption: "Sure she’s a lovely girl but someone needs to remind James Wilson he’s a pro footballer. Start abusing this privilege."

The company was soon deluged with angry ripostes calling their actions "childish" and "disgusting".

Miss Barwell herself struck back on Instagram with a photo with the caption: "Remember, people only rain on your parade because they’re jealous of your sun and tired of their shade." 



Oddschecker AU have since purged their post, saying: "Apologies for the offence caused by our earlier tweet."
