Fans have raged at BT Sport following their favourable reporting on Billy Vunipola during todays coverage.
“I believe in what I believe in. There was no intention to hurt anyone.” said the Sarecens back-rower.
But viewers were far from amused with the overall coverage of todays game following the England player controversial social post one week ago.
Mortifyingly ignorant narrative on BT Sport today re Billy Vunipola, portrayed as some sort of victim. Get a clue. ‘Most difficult week of his life’ my backside, as his post match interview reminded everyone. Embarrassing.— Alison Donnelly (@AliDonnelly) April 20, 2019
A tough week for Billy Vunipola. LOL, give me a break. Stomach churning stuff from BT here #SARvMUN— Three Red Kings (@threeredkings) April 20, 2019
Fucking morons on the Billy Vunipola thread screaming “can’t have an opinion these days”. Ermmm thinking that gay people are sinful and are going to ‘hell’ isn’t a political view, it’s wrong, it’s bigoted, and just plane fucking dumb. We have to call this dumb shit out. End of!— James Gunn (@JamesGunn1988) April 12, 2019
‘Billy Vunipola has always been an excellent bloke… We were just taken back by it’. . . What is the @btsport agenda here? Supporting and diminishing the unapologetic homophobic position of Vunipola?— Conor Crean (@conor_crean) April 20, 2019
I refuse to have bt in my house. I will also be boycotting every single Saracens and England sponsor while Billy Vunipola is playing for them. No apology for his bigoted filth and going on a lap of honour by himself shows he has the contrition of Adolf Hitler.— Will Bateman (@plasticpaddy1) April 20, 2019
