Football fans are confused by the sight of Macaulay Culkin in a West Ham shirt
Forget the headlines about Macaulay Culkin and Paris Jackson getting themselves matching tattoos. That's simply not the main story here...
As pointed out by E! News, the 36-year-old former Home Alone star accompanied Paris, daughter of the late Michael Jackson, in getting spoon tattoos (because why not?) in a West Hollywood tattoo parlour over the weekend.
Look, 19-year-old Paris even shared the moment on her Instagram story...
Lovely stuff, we're sure you'll agree. But wait... Never mind the tattoos, surely the fact that Culkin is wearing a West Ham shirt from the turn of the century is the big news here?
That's certainly what many of the people that saw pictures of the pair seemed to think, anyway...

For those not already aware of Culkin's ties to West Ham, Bleacher Report explain that they stem from his time performing in Madame Melville at London's Vaudeville Theatre in 2000. During this time, he became friends with co-star Aidan Watts, who took him to several matches at Upton Park.
