11 Oct Wilfried Zaha:’ Crystal Palace’do it’ after racial abuse on social websites
The Ivorian has become the topic of online harassment and the team are threatening legal actions
Crystal Palace state they’re taking action following Wilfried Zaha received additional afield misuse on social websites.
The Eagles published an announcement on Wednesday threatening legal actions against the perpetrators and phoning for co-operation from other Premier League clubs.
“Crystal Palace Football Club has taken actions following one of our gamers, Wilfried Zaha, has been subjected to racist abuse on social networking,” the announcement said.
“We won’t tolerate this behavior being directed at any one of our players and will fully support them in handling such incidents.
“Any actions we could take unilaterally as a golf club is going to be obtained immediately and we’ll also seek collaboration from different clubs where applicable, after that we’ll pursue the issue criminally with the entire force of all the law permits.”
Ivory Coast global Zaha previously said he received racist abuse and death threats on societal media after winning a penalty in a 2-2 Premier League draw with Arsenal past October.
Within an Instagram post in the moment, he explained:”For most of the folks taking it one step farther and being racist and needing passing on my own loved ones, I want you and your loved ones the best also.
“My entire life is still quite good despite your despise.”
The episode with Zaha is far from the first time this year a Premier League player was subject to racial abuse online.
Last week, Leicester City reported alleged abuse of midfielder Hamza Choudhury into the authorities after their game against Liverpool.
In August, Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham was targeted after missing the very important penalty in a shootout from Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup.
After that month, Abraham’s team-partner Kurt Zouma was also the victim of internet abuse after scoring an own goal from Sheffield United.
Chelsea director Frank Lampard predicted on social networking firms to behave following those episodes.
“We must appear at social networking and the programs and provide them a responsibility, to really have people enrolled who could be chased down to this,” Lampard said.
Abraham demonstrated this week that England captain Harry Kane has stated the 3 Lions are eager to walk off the pitch if some gamers endure racist abuse within their forthcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers.
