Heung-Min Son was racist again… Tottenham “I will stand on Sonny’s side” Immediate response
It was revealed that Tottenham Hotspur striker Son Heung-min of the English Premier League (EPL) suffered racial discrimination online during a game on the 20th (Korean time) when he scored the league’s 5th goal.
After finishing the 2022-2023 EPL round 24 home game against West Ham held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England, the Tottenham club tweeted, “I recognized that there was a shameful racist insult towards Son Heung-min 카지노사이트online during today’s game.” “We stand together on the side of Sonny (Son Heung-min) and once again urge social media companies and authorities to take action,” suggesting a tough response.
Son Heung-min came on as a substitute in the 23rd minute in the second half of the day and scored in 4 minutes, leading Tottenham to a 2-0 victory. This goal was Son Heung-min’s 5th goal in the league and his 98th in the Premier League.
It was also a meaningful game for Son Heung-min, who broke the goal silence in 5 league games, and after the game, it was known that he was a target of racial discrimination, and the fans cheered and delighted, but had to rage again for a while.
This is not the first time Son Heung-min has suffered racial discrimination.
In August of last year, during the EPL round 2 Chelsea away game, a scene was captured in which a spectator made a gesture of tearing his eyes sideways, which meant to disparage Asians, toward Son Heung-min, causing controversy. The Chelsea fan was banned indefinitely from the stadium.
After the league match against Manchester United in April 2021, Manchester United fans who were angry at the scene in which Son Heung-min was fouled and induced the opponent’s goal to be cancelled, poured out bad comments, including racist expressions such as “Eat dog meat” to Son Heung-min, and the identity was identified. 12 of them had to write a ‘apology letter’.
During the League Cup match between Tottenham and West Ham in October 2018, a West Ham fan who made racist remarks to Son Heung-min was fined by the court.
