Archer racially abused again: Hope no one else has to deal with stuff like this
England cricketer Jofra Archer once again faces racial abuse and this time on Social media.
Archer took to his Instagram story to share the screenshot of the message and wrote: “I (have) given a lot of thought about reacting to this and I hope no one else has to deal with stuff like this on a regular basis, it isn’t ever acceptable and should be addressed properly in my opinion.”
“I will never understand how people feel so freely to say these things to another human being, it baffles me,” he added.
He also called out authorities to take proper action on this issue.
This is not the first time the England cricketer is going through something like this. Earlier, during a Test series against New Zealand, he took to social media to write about the abuse he faced the country.
“A bit disturbing hearing racial insults today while battling to help save my team. The crowd has been amazing this week except for that one guy.”
New Zealand Cricket had taken action and in January, they had banned a 28-year-old man, who admitted the offence, from attending international and domestic games in the country for two years.
