Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham was racially abused on social media after Chelsea’s Super Cup loss to Liverpool on Wednesday.
The 21 year old striker had his penalty saved by Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian.
Kick It Out published a statement on Twitter on Thursday saying that the England youngster was racially abused on social media following the final whistle.
Kick It Out wrote: “Last night we received reports of racist abuse directed at Tammy Abraham on social media after Chelsea’s UEFA Super Cup match.
“Such abuse is now increasingly predictable, but no less disgusting.
“We send our support to Tammy and reiterate our call for Twitter and other social companies to clamp down on this level of abuse. This is a call to action – we want to know what they are going to do to tackle this insidious problem.”
Here are some of the shameful tweets that targeted Abraham after the Liverpool loss.
Only cowards do such shameful acts and we hope more steps are taken by football authorities to get racism out of football.
