The recent draw that took place between Leverkusen and Mainz, did not bring forth any form of diplomacy as immediately after the match Jamaican national footballer, Leon Bailey received a racial comment.
According to Bailey, the comments are thrown out to them every day and, so he is taking a step by using his social platform to protest.
The specific direct message he got was from an account that goes by the name, zorz_84 and went on to state “F#!k you incompetent mother. You can’t score a goal, you stupid monkey. To your incompetent teammates, f#!k all the ones you have dead or alive.”
Since recently other footballers have been victims of the deadly form of discrimination.
Players from Manchester United such as Axel Tuanzebe, Anthony Marshall, Marcus Rashford and more have received hard racism comments in recent times and that has led members from the organizational bodies of the English League, to request that Twitter and Facebook be more watchful and active where racial posts are concerned.
What they are suggesting is that social networks do an identification verification, to slow the number of derogatory race-based comments.
