Marcus Rashford speaks out after receiving vile racist abuse on social media

1 min read

Marcus Rashford has responded to the vile racial abuse he received on social media by insisting he will not give trolls the ‘strong reaction’ they are looking for.

The Manchester United striker was abused following his side’s 0-0 draw with Arsenal on Saturday with users posting monkey emojis while one told him to ‘go back to the zoo’. 

Rashford tweeted: ‘Humanity and social media at its worst. Yes I’m a black man and I live every day proud that I am. No one, or no one comment, is going to make me feel any different. So sorry if you were looking for a strong reaction, you’re just simply not going to get it here.’

‘I’m not sharing screenshots. It would be irresponsible to do so and as you can imagine there’s nothing original in them. I have beautiful children of all colours following me and they don’t need to read it. Beautiful colours that should only be celebrated.’
