Brentford Condemns Abuse Against Ivan Toney
Brentford is expecting support from legal authorities, the police, and Meta, the parent company of Instagram. According to sportsbook pay per head experts, the Metropolitan stated that nobody should get racist messages. They already sent a message to the victim to coordinate with them.
Meta gave out a similar statement condemning racist abuse received by Toney. Also, the company said racist messages go against its rules. DMs are private spaces. Thus, the company can’t do anything about it unless the person reports the message through the app. However, Meta wants to protect people from receiving offensive messages.
Sports news reports show Brighton and Brentford players took a knee to show their solidarity against racism. Also, Premier League players have been taking a knee before games from October 8 to 16 as part of the league’s anti-racism campaign.
In May, British police said they were looking into claims that Toney and Rico Henry’s families were poorly treated because of their race during a game between Brentford and Everton in Liverpool.
After the game at Goodison Park, Toney and Henry tweeted the accusations against the unnamed fans.
