“Martin has once again created unprecedented demand, bringing Britain down. If you reply to our private message with the requested details, we can help you.

This tweet was later deleted.

Mr Lewis has since shared a Twitter user’s reaction to E.ON’s post, which read: ‘The cheek of them blame you!’

This reaction was not well received, with Sam McFaul tweeting: “Pretty outrageous to see @eon_next casually blaming @MartinSLewis for ‘bruising Britain’ when his advice to read your meter today (which has been picked up everywhere) is actually for the benefit of UK consumers (the tweet has since been deleted ofc).”

E.ON responded to Mr McFaul’s tweet by saying, “hi Sam, looks like our sense of humor missed the mark”, but that too was later deleted.

McFaul responded to this development by tweeting, “and of course Eon’s response to me blaming a failing sense of humor has also been removed. need urgent repair.”
