The Daily Mail is riding out a storm on Twitter regarding a tweet about Aaron Lennon. 

The England footballer, who plays for Everton, was detained under the Mental Health Act after concerns for his welfare were expressed. 

The 30-year-old was taken in for assessment, and once the news broke, there was and continues to be an outpouring of support on social media. 

However, anger has been roused after the Daily Mail tweeted this: 

Users are angry the paper mentioned his salary in the tweet, for it has no relevance to Lennon's mental health.
