No, the issue is that he unfriending anybody who does a status on the 
World Cup which led Jamie Smith to say:

i'd struggle to find a more cancerous presence on the marxist left [tho 
it is an overcrowded field] than public school boy douche-nozzle and 
self-styled eminence grise of HM/ verso [sicilian banditry] publishing 
nexus, Sebastian Budgen. Why numerous academics keep getting on their 
knees to suck off a such bullying, petite-bourgeois imbecile [apart from 
their complete embrace of a neoliberal publish-or-die culture] shows our 
favoured revolutionary subject [ie declasse academics] is a complete 
dud. He's now unfriending anybody who statuses the world cup. A thing 
enjoyed by billions of working class ppl in case we forget. I suspect 
this was because the sporty kids bullied the fuck out of poor seb at 
eton; in any case, people should probably reflect on the sort of class 
enemies they routinely entertain in their own daily doings b4 the next 
time they moan about union leaders selling out; votes for strikes going 
the wrong way etc etc
