'Solidarity against complete and utter filth' - Liverpool fans react as Everton ban The Sun

By Danny Wright

Liverpool fans have put aside their Merseyside rivalry to give support to Everton after they decided to ban The Sun newspaper.

Everton made a public statement on their official Twitter page saying that the tabloid will no longer be able to work anywhere the club operates.

The news comes on the April 15, the 28th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster which saw 96 Liverpool fans lose their lives.

The Sun published a front page spread which slandered the name of the Liverpool supporters who were at the infamous game in 1989.

Kelvin MacKenzie was editor of the red-top at the time of the disaster and it was his article that sparked outrage once again this week.

The columnist was suspended by the paper on Friday after he made racial slurs about Everton’s mixed-heritage midfielder Ross Barkley.

He also launched a tirade of abuse about the people of Liverpool and he is now being investigated by the police.

Liverpool supporters showed solidarity with their Stanley Park neighbours following the news that Everton have joined their neighbours in banning the hugely unpopular tabloid.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Liverpool announced they had banned The Sun earlier this year after it was proved their claims about the victims of the Hillsborough disaster were totally false.

The Merseyside club will host their annual memorial service at their Melwood training ground on April 28.

Liverpool’s next game is against West Brom in the Premier League on Sunday.
