The serious Jules Bianchi F1 crash this weekend in Japan saw DHL being blasted by fans because they deemed it as an option to gain Facebook likes.

But, DHL have since removed the Facebook post with an apology message, even thought they have taken the post down fans are still hitting them hard with abuse. DHL did say in the message below they did not intend on asking people to like their page just the photo.

Since the crash happened people have been searching for ‘Jules Bianchi dead’, but this is NOT true. Yes, the accident was serious and he has had surgery but he is alive. On both Facebook and Twitter fans have been very supportive and send their love to Bianchi and his family.
