The news site posted a story about the Blues striker’s sexuality, claiming Batshuayi was ‘set to become the first openly gay footballer in the Premier League.’
The Belgian answered back by saying: “bro even your mother knows thats false.”
Batshuayi’s tweet was liked over 17,000 times and retweeted by 12,000 people.
The Chelsea Daily later back tracked, responding: “It appears our journalistic integrity has been compromised again. Not happy. Resources have let us down AGAIN.”
