Arsenal legend Ian Wright has been subjected to racial abuse once again.
In May 2020, Wright posted screenshots of the abusive messages that were sent to him by a teenage boy.
Ian Wright has now revealed that he has been receiving abusive messages after he made comments about the Black Lives Matter movement.
The abusive comments he received are similer to the ones he got from the teenager in May.
“These aren’t isolated incidents!!! It’s daily!! This is what I received for posting and talking about #BlackLivesMatter yesterday. The abuse started a week earlier, the taunting is terrifying. Coming back and back again,” Ian Wright stated on Twitter.
In trying to put an end to these incidents, Wright asked people who have experienced online racial1 abuse to post a tweet with the hashtags: #NoConsequences and #BlackLivesMatter, to “show social media companies how bad this has got.”
“Let’s show these social media companies how bad this has got, it’s ridiculous!!! So easy for them!! If you or a black friend has had online racist abuse then please post a tweet with the hashtags #NoConsequences and #BlackLivesMatter,” he added.
Ian Wright is a former English professional footballer and television and radio personality. He is currently a pundit and commentator for BBC Sport and ITV Sport. Wright played as a forward for London clubs; Arsenal and Crystal Palace.
