Manchester United have been savaged by fans after bragging about their growth on TikTok.
It comes as the club's debt soared by a further £455m after the latest financial results were revealed.
The coronavirus has had an impact on football across the world but the Red Devils have been stung particularly badly.
Profits have taken a whopping hit along with the lack of revenue streams.
But executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has given supporters some good news… sort of.
Included in the financial reports was a quick brag on how quickly United have grown on TikTok after launching their own site in November.
Part of the statement read: "Club’s November launch on TikTok achieved the fastest growing following of any football club on the platform."
And fans have been quick to troll United, who sit 14 points behind table-toppers Manchester City ahead of their Premier League clash this weekend.
One supporter replied: "When is the bus parade?"
While another wrote: "Thank god we are on top of TikTok. Any silverware for that?"
And this fan said: "Man utd winning the biggest youtube fan channel trophy and fastest growing tiktok trophy.
"Hoping they win another trophy to make the treble."
A fourth posted: "Who needs trophies and reduction in debt and growth in revenue when you are doing great on Tik Tok?"

Another said: "Tiktok champions, used to be a football club, now a tourist attraction."
Meanwhile, Woodward also insisted he is pleased with the progress made by United under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
"While the disruption to our operations remains significant, we are pleased by the tremendous resilience the club has demonstrated through the pandemic, underpinned by the dedication of our people and the strength of our commercial business," Woodward said.
"We have been reminded of the importance of football as a source of community, entertainment and pride to fans around the world, even as we have sorely missed them at Old Trafford.
"The progress made by Ole and the players this season is clear and our thriving Academy and Women's team are also adding to the optimism we feel about the future on and off the pitch."
