After Son Heung-min received “utterly reprehensible” online racist abuse, Tottenham has urged social media companies to take action.
Son, a substitute, scored Spurs’ second goal in Sunday’s 2-0 victory over West Ham in the Premier League.
On Twitter, Tottenham stated that they had reported the Son abuse.
They stated, “We stand with Sonny and once more call on social media companies and authorities to take action.”
“The club has reported the absolutely reprehensible online racist abuse directed at Heung-Min Son during today’s match,” the club stated.
After Brentford striker Ivan Toney received racial abuse on Instagram earlier this month, the anti-racism organization Kick It Out called for “meaningful reforms.”
