Isn't it amazing that when these cretins are caught out they always claim their twitter accounts have been hacked.

I agree Mick82. It taints the whole tournament and shows England in a very poor light internationally. It didn’t help that senior politicians criticised footballers for ’taking the knee’ in a show of support for anti racism.

It's likely many other twitter users are currently feeling a bit anxious over tweets they made after the match. For example, comedian Andrew Lawrence has had shows cancelled and been dropped by his agent for comments he made - https://metro.co.uk/2021/07/12/andrew-lawrence-has-shows-axed-after-racist-england-players-tweets-14917839/

ACR Not a very good attempt at 'comedy'. It's like something Bernard Manning would have said.

blacklabrador Times have changed.

It's not as if his comments were remotely funny.

He said them to try and get a reaction, and he's certainly got one.

I wonder if the next logical step will be one of these companies suing one of their own employees for dragging their corporate name through the mud by association.

Good that they've acted quickly and also condemned the behaviour.

Ann1984 Makes me laugh when they come out with the "My account was hacked" twaddle.

Notice it's only after something horrendous has been posted on their account.

I've yet to see a tweet saying "great sponsored run today, we raised £800 for the air ambulance" to be immediately followed by "sorry about the air ambulance tweet, it wasn't me, I've been hacked"

They must think we are as stupid as they seemingly are.

These people often get caught out with the "Ive been hacked" claim when people start looking back through all their tweets. These racist comments are usually not one offs! It nice to see people actually get caught and punished by losing jobs etc - so much more effective than any criminal conviction.
