It comes after the 29-year-old hitman is said to have been furious following his non-involvement in Sundays 4-1 thumping at the hands of Premier League champions Manchester City.
Fans were largely in support of the former Newcastle and Liverpool forward over their manager but it is not the first time Carroll has been involved in some form of controversy.
Only earlier in the season, the north-east native was roundly criticised by supporters after appearing in Miami during the club’s warm weather training despite another injury-ravaged campaign at the London Stadium.
Tensions were clearly high post-defeat to Pep Guardiola’s men which was as damaging to morale as it was to their points tally.
It was a loss which cast their hopes of remaining in the top-flight into doubt with Southampton just three points behind them in the bottom three on the back of a win at the weekend against Bournemouth which boosted their chances of Premier League survival.
Here is a round-up of some of the best reactions on social media to the apparent incident:
Carroll should've decked him back to Preston

Personally, Id rather keep Andy. That is saying a lot, cause normally I slate him for his lack of commitment, but anyone telling Moyes he's an idiot is a friend of mine!!

To be fair he would have ran around a lot more than Hernandez!

In other West Ham news, £75,000-a-wk player is most pointless signing ever made by West Ham after yet another stinker.
