What followed was an attack from some Atleti fans over Twitter who directed abuse at the youngster blaming him for the result and Courtois had no option but to close the account.
Users from around the world rushed to his defence following numerous death threats and expressed their support, sending thousands of messages to the keeper.
Radamel Falcao also showed support over the social media site and Courtois re-activated his account later on Sunday.
