Tabloid tries to make a mountain out of a molehill over the childish antics of Emirates youngster.
TEEN soccer ace Jack Wilshere was kicked out of a club for “pestering” a group of women before the alleged street brawl which saw him nicked.
Bouncers ejected the Arsenal star, 18, who is on bail over the later bust-up in which 21-year-old Kim Plested’s arm was broken.
It followed complaints “juvenile and rude” England under-21 star Wilshere jokingly tried to take pictures up women’s SKIRTS with his mobile.
Josefin Rosen, 20, who was with 30 women at a 23rd birthday bash, said: “Jack was trying to grab at me and my friend when we were dancing.
“He was drinking but wasn’t that drunk.”
Josefin’s party and Wilshere and pals were in the VIP area at Amika in London’s Kensington.
She added: “Jack kept laughing and trying to take pictures up our skirts.
“He made me feel really uncomfortable. If I was his mother I’d be ashamed of him.”
Clubber Sonja Kruger, 32, said: “Jack kept trying to grab at Josefin.”
An Amika spokesman confirmed the incidents and said: “We put up a barrier and provided security between the girls and Jack Wilshere’s party. They were asked to leave.” (The Sun)
Well this hardly seems that big a deal. An 18 year old acting in a juvenile and rude manner. He is a teenager and even the woman making these claims stated that the Arsenal man wasn’t drunk. Blimey when I was 18 (not that long ago) I also acted in a drunk and slightly crude fashion. It seems that no real harm was done, but clearly The Sun has decided this all warrants some big attention.
It is worth also remembering that in the altercation that left a woman with a broken arm the England international has been regarded by many, including the Police, as nothing more than a witness who did in fact try to act as peacemaker.
One thing I really do like about that comic, The Sun, is the way they CAPITALIZE words that they think will get people’s attention. Such as SKIRTS and TEEN. Really gets you interested doesn’t it. Seems like a fuss over nothing and hardly in the same league as some offences committed by a) other footballers in the recent past and b) by teenagers up and down the land.
The Sun is clearly looking for a story where there clearly isn’t one.
