Former footballer Stan Collymore caused a stir on Twitter when he posted a rant about the Falklands war.
The 43-year-old, who works as a pundit on radio station talkSPORT, referred to the two-month war which occurred in the 1980s.
The United Kingdom reasserted its rule over the Falkland Islands following a conflict, which resulted in the death of almost 1,000 people, after Argentina invaded the area in 1982.
On Sunday night, Collymore tweeted: "Falklands? Wasn't anyone's. We just thieved it, as we do. What glory, what triumph? A fucking island with sheep."
According to the Daily Star, his post, which has since been deleted, caused some war veterans to call on the ex-sportsman to be sacked from his job.
Reports have claimed that Collymore later said that his tweet had been "taken out of context".
