Former Newcastle star Andy Carroll fell victim to an internet troll the other day, leaving the striker looking very stupid indeed.
This is the tweet that caught Andy out…

Looks just like a fan wanting a reply from a Premier League star after the death of his uncle, right?
Andy replied as well…
The problem is that person being portrayed as the ‘fan’s’ uncle is actually Andy Carroll’s fellow West Ham team-mate, Matt Jarvis.
You would think he would have noticed!
Here is how twitter responded…
Andy Carroll thought Matt Jarvis was someone's dead uncle.

Andy Carroll, there, not recognising his own teammate Matt Jarvis, believing him to be a fans' dead uncle. Scenes

Hahah Andy Carroll thinks Matt Jarvis is dead, time for bed I reckon

Some people were more understanding though…
I don't know what Matt Jarvis looks like, to be fair to Andy Carroll…
