It Happens Everyday – Wilfried Zaha Responds To Racial Abuse


Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha has responded after a 12-year-old boy who sent him a string of racist abuse on social media was arrested by West Midlands Police.

The Ivory Coast international posted screenshots of a number of messages sent to him via Instagram Direct Messages ahead of his side’s Premier League game against Aston Villa.

Palace lost 2-0 thanks to a brace from Trezeguet, but the incident meant the spotlight was shone on society’s ongoing problem with racism once again.

In a statement on Twitter, Zaha said:

“Very disappointed we didn’t get a better result yesterday but I wanted to come on here to thank you for all your messages of support.

“I would also like to thank West Midlands Police for their swift action in making an arrest.

“People need to understand that whatever your age, your behaviour and your words come with consequences and you cannot hide behind social media.

“It is important social media platforms do as they did yesterday and seek out these individuals and remove them.

“This is not the first time I have received messages like this, nor am I the only player to receive messages like this – it happens every day.

“I want to thank everyone for the love and support but enough is enough! It is not enough to be disgusted by these messages I received and move on.

“It isn’t enough to just say #notoracism. We need action, we need education, things need to change.”
