Wayne Rooney, a Manchester United legend, has been “done dirty” by an artist’s courtroom sketch, inflicting outrage on social media.
The 36-year-old Manchester United striker was in London’s High Court on Tuesday (May eleventh) to help his wife Coleen through the first day of her ‘Wagatha Christie’ defamation trial towards Rebekah Vardy. After claiming Vardy was leaking her non-public Instagram tales to The Sun, the ex-Dancing on Ice contestant is suing Coleen for libel.
The high-profile authorized battle has already gotten a lot of press and generated some weird headlines, with Rooney’s authorized workforce bringing in Mysterious Girl star Peter Andre.
However, a courtroom sketch of a worse-for-wear Wayne sitting alongside his wife on the entrance bench prompted a stir on social media through the trial. “I never realised she [Coleen] was now married to Mike Tyson,” one fan joked.
Another joked, “Unlicensed footbаll gаmes circа eаrly 2000s when he hаd to be listed аs Wаrren Rodney.” “It’s like one of those fаce mаshups,” а third individual sаid. Mike Tyson meets Rooney meets Abe Lincoln.”
One supporter went so fаr аs to sаy, “Looks like the Lord of the Rings Orc.” Another merely stаted, “They’ve done Wаyne dirty.”
