English football reproaches Twitter and Facebook for their inactivity in the face of abuse

Several football institutions in England have reproached Twitter and Facebook for their lack of action in the face of abuses in the form of racist or discriminatory messages that footballers are subjected to on these social networks.

In a letter sent to Mark Zuckerberg, creator of Facebook, and Jack Dorsey, founder of Twitter, they have indicated that “the reality is that there is still abuse on these platforms.”

“Your lack of action has created the tendency that people who insult are above good and evil. The tireless flow of racist and discriminatory messages is fed back. The more Twitter, Facebook and Instagram allow it, the more normal it becomes, “they said in the letter signed by the Premier League, the FA, women’s football, the referee’s college, the coaches’ association and the Kick It Out organization.

In recent weeks, several footballers have received racist insults through social networks, a practice that has become common every time a player makes a mistake.

Manchester United players Axel Tuanzebe and Anthony Martial; Anthony Rudiger, from Chelsea, and Yan Dhanda, from Swansea City, are some of the examples of athletes who in recent days have been subjected to these humiliations.

“The targets of insults should have some kind of basic protection and we ask that you accept your responsibilities to prevent this practice from appearing on your platforms,” ​​say the associations.

Among the actions that ask social networks, they advocate filtering and blocking messages before they can be sent if they contain racist material, using more “robust” measures to eliminate racist messages, a verification system so that the police can identify the aggressors, that repeat offenders cannot open new accounts and that these platforms assist the authorities in identifying the aggressors.
