An employee with access to Manchester United’s Instagram account inadvertently shared his lunchtime routine with more than 37,000 followers, hearts went out to the unsuspecting victim.
Footage of the scene was recorded and shared on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon, after the United account went live for several minutes.
At one point 37,200 supporters were left watching a blank screen, while noises could be heard in the background.
The knocking together of plates and the sound of a microwave gave those following the indication that they were seeing into a kitchen, but there were no images to back that up, with the camera showing only a dark surface. Those that saw it could only share in their anguish for the employee.
‘37,000 people are currently watching Man Utd’s accidental Instagram live,’ wrote Betfair’s own social media manager Pete Evans.
