Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 'likes' tweet slamming Arsenal fans after Crystal Palace draw

Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang appears to have made his feelings known after he became the latest player to feel the wrath of the Gunners fans.

Footage has emerged of supporters abusing the former Borussia Dortmund man as he left the Emirates Stadium after the clash with Crystal Palace on Sunday.

The post-match headlines following that clash have been dominated by the incident surrounding club captain Granit Xhaka, who was loudly jeered when he was substituted shortly after the hour mark.

Xhaka could be seen reacting to the boos he was receiving, and told fans to “f*** off” as he headed straight down the tunnel.

Aubameyang has failed to score in his last four games

Aubameyang – who is Arsenal ‘s top scorer this season with eight goals, although he has failed to net in his last four appearances – played for the full 90 minutes of the 2-2 draw, in which Sokratis Papastathopoulos saw what would have been a late winner controversially ruled out by VAR.

The video of supporters jeering the forward was circulated widely online on Tuesday, with fans’ anger clearly audible.

In it, one shouts: “£2,000 a year to watch s***… f*** off!” whilst another adds: “These people pay £1,800 for a season ticket… they are your support!”

In the aftermath of the video social media has been flooded with Gunners supporters criticising the behaviour of the fans, specifically in their abuse of Aubameyang given his performances for the club.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the Gabonese forward’s Twitter account can be seen to have ‘liked’ a tweet from fan Patrick Timmons, which reads: “I’m honestly ashamed watching videos of fans shouting abuse at Aubameyang as he attempted to drive home after the match on Sunday.

“Arguably our most dependable performer, who knows where we’d be without him. He deserves much, much better than that. We’re sorry, @Aubameyang7 .”

The forward is not in the Arsenal squad that takes on Liverpool at Anfield in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.
