People who are guilty of racism in Britain will soon be banned from sports stadiums. To achieve this, Prime Minister Boris Johnson wants to amend the legislation on that point.
“If you are guilty of racist online abuse of football players, you do not go to the game. No ifs, no buts. No exceptions and no apologies,” Johnson said in parliament on Wednesday.
England lost the final of the European Championship to Italy on Sunday after penalties. Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka missed a penalty. The three black football players were racially treated online afterwards. Johnson met with representatives from Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat and Instagram on Tuesday to discuss how to resolve the issues.
