A Sheffield Wednesday fan gets mocked on social media after making a numerous amount of pathetic gestures at Wigan Athletic supporters.
The two teams faced off at the DW Stadium with the South Yorkshire outfit coming away with all three points, taking them to 9th in the League One table.
For the Latics however, the defeat was costly as it now sees league leaders go three points clear of the second place Greater Manchester side.

However during the 2-1 Owls win, some rather bizarre antics from the away end were caught on camera with one fan now having the mickey taken out of him.
The wannabe hooligan was video recorded faking pulling out a gun from under his shirt, in some sort of bid to threaten those he was targetting abuse at.
He then took to making a cut-throat taunt, something we saw a Sheffield United fan do towards Hull City supporters the other week.
Twitter users reacted on what they were watching as Sheffield Wednesday fan gets mocked after making pathetic gestures at Wigan…

Wigan slipped off the top of League One after a 2-1 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday at the DW Stadium.
Wednesday took the lead halfway through the first half in utterly bizarre fashion when Max Power headed past his own goalkeeper Ben Amos from 30 yards out, who had come to collect a long diagonal ball and left his goal unguarded.
Amos managed to redeem himself with a great stop to prevent Callum Paterson from scoring while at the other end, Will Keane saw a 25-yard strike pushed round the post before sending a header looping on to the roof of the net.
Lee Gregory smashed against the Wigan bar and the Owls striker then laid on the second goal on the hour mark. He picked the pocket of Latics defender Jack Whatmough before crossing for Paterson to hit home.
Wednesday keeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell denied Lang before the Wigan forward was tripped in the box by Marvin Johnson. Wyke then converted the penalty kick with 10 minutes to go, and Wigan failed to find a leveller in the closing stages.
Speaking to the media after the game, Sheff Wed boss Darren Moore said: “I thought we were spot on… I thought the performance was the right performance, and in the right direction that we want to go…
“The really important thing for me is to keep getting better, and to get to a level where we keep maximising the potential of the team.
“Are we there yet? No. Am I happy where we’re at? No. But is there more to come? Yes. Until I’ve seen that, I won’t be satisfied – there’s a lot of work to be done.”
Moore said of his ‘keeper: “He knows that if there’s any noise about him then it’s from outside the club, because we at Sheffield Wednesday know the quality that he has – and the fans appreciate him, you can see that.
“He’s a top, top goalkeeper, and he’s been here to perform the way that he has. But another reason he came here was to play in front of the passionate Wednesday fans – it’s great for the players, and the away fans were superb again.”
Leam Richardson believed his side’s performance deserved more as they were defeated by Sheffield Wednesday at the DW Stadium on Tuesday evening.
“The disappointing thing is the result,” he said.
“I thought the lads didn’t leave a breath out there and they were probably worthy of something, in my opinion.
“If we are going to be critical, I thought in the first 10 minutes, we didn’t get to grips with Sheffield Wednesday.
“They came with a direct style and they asked us questions early on. I thought the goals came from a couple of our mistakes – but the lads have been doing great.
“Although they will take credit for a lot of what has gone before, I’ll take it for the result tonight because it’s up to me to reset everyone now.
“The first question that I always ask myself – certainly as a coach and a manager – can the lads firstly represent themselves anymore and leave a breath out there for the Club? I thought they did tonight – right until the end. We were on the front foot and the momentum shifted in the last 20 minutes.
“The disappointing thing is the result, but the performance I’ve got to be pleased about.”
“A lot of people know that we have come a long way, quickly,” he added.
“We’ve probably experienced certain things for the first time. This group of players have played nine games together – which isn’t a lot in football.
“They are disappointed that they are losing to Sheffield Wednesday, who have just been relegated from the Championship, but I thought we competed throughout the game.
“If they are disappointed with that result on the back of that performance – if we have more of that, we should be okay.”
