Manchester United’s in-house TV channel, MUTV, has been accused of trying to silence fans, after a supporter shouted “get the f***ing Glazers out”, live on the Paddy Crerand show last week.
A Twitter profile with the name GlazersOut, claimed calls to the TV channel’s phone-in shows were being blocked and replaced with fake calls.
MUTV presenter, Stewart Gardner apologised to viewers last week for the “totally unacceptable” language, after a caller named as Paul from Middleton, made an X-rated derogatory comments against the club’s owners, the Glazers.
The Glazers and executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, have received criticism in recent weeks, with social media campaigns ‘#GlazersOut’ and #WoodwardOut’, gathering momentum during the summer.
The fans have also criticised the club’s recruitment and managerial appointments since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.
After fans failed to get through to a debate on Monday night, GlazersOut tweeted: “So @ManUtd TV aren’t taking calls on tonight’s “fans phone in” show. I wonder why?
“Good effort, @ProducerShep but you won’t silence us fans. We’ll keep making noise until we get #GlazersOut.”
Both later tweeted: “Now they are replacing real fans calls with fake calls on MUTV. The Glazer dictatorship in full effect. We are just dollar sign to them and must just accept it.”
Supporters also expressed their frustrations at the way the club was run by writing an open letter before the start of the season.
The supporters said in the letter that “they have to ‘choose which rival’ they want to win the league while being forced to witness every transfer window unfold in horror.”
“Instead of addressing us you simply sweep it under the rug in the hope that it will go away. Your silence is a betrayal to our club. We demand answers,” the fans said.
