Wayne Lineker goes ‘too far’ posting x-rated meme about himself
| Last updated
We've barely made it through Monday and Wayne Lineker's already managed to ruin the week for thousands of people.
How, you ask? By sharing a horrendous meme.
The younger brother to football legend Gary Lineker took to Instagram yesterday (20 February) to share the x-rated post, with some accusing him of going 'too far'.
The meme in question shows a pair of rose gold, metal-frame sunglasses alongside the caption: "Nearly that time of year where every girl on Instagram wears these sunglasses at ocean beach trying to get fingered by Wayne Lineker."
Adding to this, the 60-year-old Ibiza club owner said: "Tag a mate who you think would do this."
Is this his way of saying he's on the lookout for a new girlfriend again? If so, he's going about it the wrong way.
Hundreds of people have taken to the comments section to share their disgust, with one writing: "Can someone stop this granddad."
"This is like high school," said another, while a third added: "That’s disgusting sorry."
A fourth chimed in, "This would be funny if it wasn't posted by Wayne Lineker," with a fifth stating: "This makes me feel physically sick."
And then there was the person who said 'this one' went 'too far'.
Another who thought the same thing we did commented: "He probs made this meme himself so he can hunt down all the birds that get tagged in the comments when he's in Ibiza in the summer."
Watch this post.
This isn't the first time Wayne's faced backlash on Instagram, having previously caused a stir in his bizarre plea for a girlfriend, which came with a lengthy set of criteria peppered with plenty of #humblebrags.
The post, which was accompanied by a selfie, began: "Let's start this off like I'm normal: strong nice loving personality."
But it went on to outline 'more important' factors, saying: "You must like older men but only me... You have to be a worldie and above 30 (Ok 28 29 could work) but not my age as that would just look weird.
"You must like to travel and to fly business class and stay in incredible hotels. Be prepared to give up your career or job or at least be able to work from a laptop on a tropical beach somewhere.
"You will need to spend the summer in Ibiza and the winter in Dubai with 2 weeks in UK for Christmas and new year with the families and holidays to the Maldives.
"No baggage as mine are all grown up. A dog is acceptable but will need a passport.
"You must be able to cook as I love cooking, especially Waitrose ready made meals."
But it didn't end there. Lineker added that he would accept 'house music and R&B lovers only', and that Netflix viewers should be fans of 'real crime' and shows like Money Heist.
"No chick flicks watch them with your mates," he added.
"You need to be confident enough to be able to go to the front of the queue in nightclubs and accept a table and free drinks from the owners.
"You will need a driving license to share a Bentley and a Lamborghini Jeep (pending)."
We could go on, but you get the idea. Although the post was seemingly tongue in cheek, as that commenter said earlier, we'd have an easier time believing it was a joke if it wasn't posted by Wayne Lineker.
