Aston Villa ace Jack Grealish is backed by fans over Tenerife holiday picture …

A nightclub worker who posted Twitter pictures[1] allegedly showing Aston Villa[2] star Jack Grealish slumped in the street during a sunshine holiday is facing a backlash from fans.

Briony King was involved in a lengthy exchange on the website involving supporters who told her to leave the youngster alone.

The storm broke after the nightclub worker uploaded images she claimed were of Grealish outside a hotel[3] in Costa Adeje.

But that sparked a row with fans who said Ms King should not have published the pictures.

One supporter, @CurtisUTV, wrote: “He’s not working, would she have taken the picture of any random bloke?”

But she hit back, telling other fans: “Why should he be protected because he’s a footballer?

“Would have uploaded it even if it wasn’t him.”
