Top 10: Global brands take advantage of Luis Suarez’ bite

If you weren’t around your television screens, social media profiles or just away from society in general, you probably didn’t know that Luis Suarez did it again. No he didn’t save Uruguay once more, no incredible goal, no free-kick nothing. No, Luis Suarez did something for the third time in his career – he bit a fellow professional footballer at the highest level of the sport. Otman Bakkal & Branislav Ivanovic are joined by Giorgio Chiellini in the list of Suarez’ biting victims. Now it remains unclear what sort of punishment the striker will be handed but fans on social media were quick to offer their opinion.

As the incident became more and more popular, many brands joined in to the trend (and my god was this trending!), but we’ve picked out 10 of the best and biggest names who offered their messages on Twitter.
