Insensitive Retweet Makes Punters Roar Against Paddy Power

Irish bookie apologizes and claims it was human error

After retweeting a Twitter user's controversial request following Bolton Wanderers' Fabrice Muamba's heart attack during an FA Cup game against Tottenham Hotspur last month, Irish bookmaker Paddy Power apologized for the retweet and blamed it on human error.

Namely, the insensitive Twitter user commented that betting options should be introduced on player heart attacks during the Premier League battle between Manchester United and Manchester City.

This caused an uproar among Twitter users who assessed the tweet and subsequent retweet as "absolutely disgraceful" and "appalling".
