Recently there has been more and more abuse aimed at footballers and their families. We are now in 2019, seriously this needs to stop. We as a country are due to host a major championship and should be proud to have a cultural society and should welcome all.. I am a football fan, this weekend one of Leicester City’s players was subjected to a torrent of disgusting and degrading comments. These comments included many racial slurs “n*****” “p***” and more he was also told to “ kill himself” and even as far as to wish “ his kid gets cancer” all over a football game! This is not acceptable it’s hurtful and in plain English.. it’s wrong. These comments were posted over Facebook, Twitter and instagram and no doubt in many football club forums. Raheem Sterling also had racist abuse, A footballers wife was told “ I hope your baby dies”, we’ve seen the abuse other players abroad have recently gotten too. Every club has that minority few that think they are allowed to say what they want when they want and it’s time for it to change. It’s time to say enough is enough! We need to do more, we need to take action and the time to do this is NOW! It’s time for the respectable people in society to call out the clubs to call out the trolls and try to stop it.. I know unfortunately we can’t eradicate it all but together we need to take a stand! Whether it’s racism or homophobia or anything we need to say hateful abuse will not be tolerated. That behaviour has NO place in today’s society and NO place in football! 
please sign and support and please let’s try to take a stand and make a change. 
I am calling for lifetime bans for anyone who is proved to have posted or behaved in ANY way  hurtful / hateful/ abusive to footballers and for the social media platforms to take their responsibilities seriously to prevent the abuse.
