Ex-Liverpool mayor slammed for “horrendous” tweet

Following the passing of Everton chairman Bill Kenwright, the former mayor of Liverpool was called “horrendous” for his outburst against the club’s supporters.

Joe Anderson led the city between 2012 and 2021 and is a Toffees supporter. He tweeted out a tribute to Kenwright shortly after his death on Tuesday.

According to Anderson, “Bill Kenwright passed away having bravely and dignifiedly battled liver and brain cancer. However, I know that what hurt him the most and broke his heart was the poisonous cancer of so-called fans attacking him directly. Bill deserved better because of his unwavering commitment to Everton and loyalty to the team. RIP.”

Kevin Campbell is the latest former Everton player to pay tribute on X.

The striker wrote, “My deepest condolences to your family and R.I.P. Bill Kenwright.” “And the Everton family too.”

Kenwright, dubbed “the last great football chairmen,”

David Maddock of Mirror Football has written a moving essay about Bill Kenwright.

“Bill Kenwright is possibly the final great football chairman…the outpouring of grief following his passing on Tuesday speaks louder than words could ever hope to,” he said.

Like all passionate relationships, the Grand Old Team brought as much heartache as joy. It was his third love, following his daughter Lucy and his partner and soul mate Jenny Seagrove.

“Great Evertonian” is honored by Cottee.

Social media reactions to the news have been posted by the former Everton striker.

“So sad to hear of the passing of Bill Kenwright,” he tweeted. “I lost a friend, and Everton lost a terrific Evertonian. Bill, RIP.”

Though things may not have gone as planned during Bill Kenwright’s time as chairman, few Everton supporters would overlook his generosity in late 2020.

“The club has lost a chairman, a leader, a friend, and an inspiration. Everyone at Everton is thinking and praying for his partner Jenny Seagrove, his daughter Lucy Kenwright, his grandchildren, and all those who were in his life.”
