Coleen Rooney was met with harsh criticism from her followers as she bragged about winning a Gucci handbag.
The wife of footballer Wayne took to Twitter to thank the organisers of a competition she’d won.
Coleen scooped a designer handbag in a contest run by The Cool Card, an exclusive, members-only privilege card that unlocks a secret world of benefits from luxury brands.
Sharing a snap of her new accessory, she wrote: "Thank you so much @thecoolcard …. competition winner of this gorgeous bag!!"
But some of the mum-of-four’s followers didn’t appreciate her post.
One said: "As if… embarrassing"
And another sarcastically wrote: "Well done Coleen, that’s great news. I know you’ve been saving hard for that bag."
While one commented: "Really Coleen didn’t think you were that shallow to advertise your freebies “winner”really ? Stick to posting your lovely family pics"
Another said: "This makes me cringe. Super wealthy privileged lady member of an exclusive private club (clearly for the super wealthy) wins a super expensive bag. Taking the p**s much?"
And another urged her: "Pls donate it you really don’t need it, even auction it for a charity"
However, not everyone agreed, and many people jumped to her defence.
One said: "Always a great feeling to win a competition regardless of the prize! Love it and good for you Coleen"
"Omg I’m in love with this bag. Where can I get it from," another asked her.
While one told her: "Lovely , congrats"
One said: "Jesus guys wealthy or not she is allowed to enter competitions like the rest of us. Yes she could have probably afforded to buy the bag but where are the rules to say because you have so much in the bank you can’t enter some of the comment are disgusting! Leave her alone!!!"
And another commented: "Fair play to her is all I can say, she is only human at the end of the day, if I could afford nice expensive things then I would show them off. Why is it so cringe that she has shared a pic of it?"
Mirror Online has contacted Coleen’s representatives for comment.
