AC Milan send message to Tottenham Hotspur and Davinson Sanchez

Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Davinson Sanchez was subjected to ugly racist messages on social media last night following his side’s 2-2 draw at Newcastle United.

Social media platforms have often refused to take action on users that racially abuse football players, and that has prompted Arsenal legend Thierry Henry to quit the micro-blogging sites until further notice.

Spurs winger Gareth Bale has also suggested a massive boycott of social media until the platforms start to take responsibility to curb racism.

Tottenham has sent a message of support to Sanchez following last night’s ugly incident:

Serie A giants AC Milan have also reacted to the abuses the Spurs star received, taking to Twitter to send this message to him and the club:

While Twitter, Facebook and Instagram will swiftly remove content that violates copyright, they fail to maintain that level of energy when battling racism.

Footballers and football clubs boycotting social media en masse will be a good way to spur these platforms into taking action. Only such a drastic move will get everyone’s attention.
