Brighton accused of Ben White social media dig after win over Arsenal

Brighton accused Ben White on social media of mining after victory over Arsenal

A post on social media by Brighton & Hove Albion, on Sunday, caused a sensation among the fan base of his Premier League rival Arsenal.

Of course, the Gunners and the Seagulls competed yesterday afternoon, for a showdown in the Premier League in the Emirates.

Visitors Brighton, in the end, exited the encounter with something of a surprise victory, taking full advantage of a completely lackluster display by hosts Mikel Arteta to take their first three points since early February.

As noted above, after a full 24 hours of the match, neither Brighton, nor at least those in charge of the club’s social media accounts, appear willing to let Arsenal live in Saturday’s result.

This comes after the South Coast side revealed an image highlighting developments in the wake of one of their goals in north London.

In the background, two members of Graham Potter’s band can be seen touring away in celebration.

What is noteworthy, however, is the character of Ben White, who looked utterly sad amid what proved to be a difficult week for all those associated with Arsenal:

‘Lack of respect’

So, why did the photo arouse such wide interest?

Well, White, of course, only left Brighton last summer, replacing Amex with the Emirates in much-talked about the big money movement.

In turn, many, particularly those affiliated with Arsenal, have continued to divulge their own arguments that the post was intended as a dig at the former Seagull star, with only a sample of the backlash that followed on Twitter displayed below:
