Collymore demands action against Twitter user for 'hang himself like Gary Speed' comment

London, Sat, 24 Dec 2011 ANI

London, Dec 24(ANI): English football pundit and former player Stan Collymore has called on Twitter to take action against a user, who suggested he should 'go hang himself like Gary Speed'.


The user's tweet concluded with 'ok negrito' referring to Liverpool player Luis Suarez's comment on Patrice Evra.


Suarez was banned for eight games and fined 40,000 pounds for his comment that 'included a reference to Mr Evra's colour'.


Collymore was racially abused when he highlighted the link between racism and football pundit Alan Hansen's comment through his tweets.


A poster, Jon Juwanson then tweeted '@StanCollymore do us a favour Stan and go and hang yourself like Gary Speed did please. Ok Negrito'.


The post also mocked Collymore over his misspelled defence of 'Woy um I racest. Negrito meens pal,' The Daily Mail reports.


The incident comes after Hansen was forced to apologize after being dragged into the racism controversy by referring to black players as 'coloured'.I think there's a lot of coloured players in all the major teams and there are lots of coloured players who are probably the best in the Premier League," Hansen had said.


England captain John Terry is also facing criminal charge over calling Queens Park Rangers player Anton Ferdinand 'f****** black ****' during the match at Loftus Road stadium. (ANI)
