Fans brand Mark Wright “insensitive” after tweet during Manchester One Love concert

Mark left his followers raging after tweeting about his own TV show during the gig

Reality star Mark Wright has been slammed by his Twitter followers after a “disrespectful” tweet during last night’s Manchester One Love gig.

US singer Ariana Grande performed alongside many other famous faces to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in the Manchester Arena terror attack two weeks ago.

But Mark, 30, has left fans angry after telling them to tune into his own show Take Me Out: The Gossip.

The former TOWIE star wrote: “Get it on !! THE GOSSIP NOW !! @itv2 10pm.”

But fans were not happy with his “insensitive” tweet.

One wrote: “More important things happening at the moment!”

Another added: “Seriously?!? More important things than you happening in the U.K. at the mo. #OneLoveManchester #WeStandTogetherManchester #westandwithlondon.”

A third tweeted: “Are you for real?! It’s all about #OneLoveManchester.”

One user said: “Unfollowed. It was all about #OneLoveManchester.”

Another pointed out the fact that Mark’s wife Michelle Keegan was watching the heartwarming concert rather than his ITV2 show by saying: “Mate you’ve got no chance, your missus isn’t even watching you tonight!”

Actress Michelle, 30, shared a touching tweet labelling the gig “powerful” and “special”.

She wrote: “So powerful, so special! @ArianaGrande Thankyou! #OneLoveManchester #proud.”

Shortly after the tweet Mark shared a message showing his support for Manchester.

He wrote: “Manchester. England. Our country, never defeated!! #OneLoveManchester.”

But some fans were still raging from his previous tweet with one saying: “Keep digging that hole! You clearly didn’t even watch it….”

Another said: “Too late mate you’ve shown yourself to be insensitive!”

“Backtracking because your ego could be damaged by the amount of people questioning where your common sense is,” a third added.

The concert was watched by millions all around the world last night as the star-studded line up honoured those who lost their lives and were affected by the dreadful attack.

Charlotte Campbell, mum of one of the bomb victims Olivia Campbell, praised singer Ariana for organising the amazing gig and thanked her for paying tribute to those affected and to her daughter.

During an appearance on Good Morning Britain she said: “Thank you for singing your hits.

“You’re an amazing, amazing young woman.”
