    Here's What Happened When Lord Sugar Said He'd Block Anyone Who Tweeted "You're Fired" At Him

    You will totally guess what happened.

    We all love a bit of Lord Sugar on Twitter, don't we? The way he randomly tweets international football score updates...

    Just as I said 0-0 England score 0-1

    ...it's a public service of a sort.

    The way him and Piers Morgan and Donald Trump have #qualitybants together!

    But one thing Lord Sugar doesn't like is people repeating his catchphrase to him.

    It never fails to amaze me people think they are so novel telling me You're fired. You know the type looking like a tw.. lead balloon jokes.

    He generally takes the time to engage with people who do this.

    This tweet is better if you read it in the voice of Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight.

    Can't believe amount of cretins wanting to be blocked.They think I am going to reply to them. But I just block them with no acknowledgment

    People were really keen to respect his wishes.

    So apparently "Lord Sugar" really doesn't like it if you tweet "You're fired" at him. Please respect this. https://t.co/dGZklOpQNl

    But sadly in the last day there have now been several thousand tweets to Lord Sugar with his catchphrase.

    It must be taking him a long time to block everyone.

    @Lord_Sugar I am sorry to hear that you're fired. What will you do now that you're fired? Is there any way to change the fact that you're f

    A harsh assessment would be that Lord Sugar has hit upon a genius strategy to make all of Twitter tweet "you're fired" at him.

    Sigh.

    Anyway, can you believe this is five years old?
