Doesn't matter who did it, surely? Racial abuse is racial abuse, no matter who did it. I'm glad we're trying to stamp it out - aren't you?
Hold on a minute. My point was more that due to the way the first post was constructed you might assume that it was a Brentford fan.
Similarly from yours I might assume that you are suggesting that I don’t think it’s a good thing that the club are trying to deal with people with abhorrent views.

Shamefully, Instagram do f*** all if you report it, too.

Mind you, the club can be extremely slow to react as well. There was an incident a while ago with someone racially abusing JDS/BFC on Instagram - despite repeated ‘tagging’ of the club on the post in question, it took days before BFC removed the post/poster.

Instagram is owned by Facebook...

Guys, take a time out. We already have too many verbal punch-ups on this site over nothing. Toney was racially abused on social media by an obnoxious person who is not worthy of being called a football fan (of any club) and the account was subsequently closed down. Let's leave it at that as I am sure Ivan will respond to such abuse in the best way he can, by putting in a motm performance when he gets out onto the pitch on Wednesday.

To be honest, that's not how I read the first post. Even so, perhaps I was too ready to jump to conclusions.

The world does feel like it could be at a turning point, and social media companies are being inched towards taking action, rather than just sitting back with their hands up claiming there's nothing they can do about it.

It needs to be stamped out, but constantly and consistently. BFC's position is absolutely correct in banning orders for people and hopefully it will encourage other clubs to do the same. You can't broadcast racist points of view, it needs to be reinforced that it's not ok to do so just because you're able to do so.

The Account may have been deleted but FB/Insta should have kept the record and have the IP address of the poster... over to the MPS to get it. It's not difficult to find on a live account.

Ivan is on his way to legend status at Brentford.....the person who tweeted such crap is nothing to do with brentford and is just a piece of filth trolling like the big brave person from behind a key board he is........ivan would probably look at him and hed pass out with fear.................so lets not get carried away giving the troll the attention they so obvously crave.......and dont tell that gimp reporter at the times about this as he'll probably start a new hate campaign on us

If it found that the people doing this are supporting Brentford, let’s hope the club ban them

I imagine that, in the majority of cases, the people who are doing things like this are either children/teenagers or mentally deficient?

I'm not saying it makes it right, and clearly they pick up these tendencies from somewhere, but I'm not sure it's productive to have articles/statements every time something happens online, because it's not likely to deter the usual perpetrators and just paints the club in a bad light.

In a case like this, i suspect the culprit is more likely to be a “follower” of the team who Ivan has just scored against ...

Is there any evidence whatsoever that this guy is a bees fan? More likely to be an opposition fan id have thought.

Either way, let’s hope he receives an appropriate punishment for this.

And people wonder why footballers still take a knee...
As well as taking the knee tomorrow, I'd like to see the club make Toney captain for the day. He's a leader anyway and would send a message

Another stupid comment on Twitter, this time from a Bees fan, which Toney has responded to. Who are these morons?

How is it ammunition?
He's been pretty active in taking the fight to those who responded to the initial news on Twitter in an unsavoury way. I would not be surprised to see him do this again

Because we've got some idiot calling himself Edolf Spazington with a profile pic of a guy in a wheelchair directing racist b***ocks at one of our players on Twitter. I would say that's right up the street of a journalist who's interested in reporting on the far right element of our support on social media.

Did you think his previous piece was inaccurate or unfair?

Based on what’s on Twitter it’d seem the clown supports a club north of the border that begins with C.

A club that got turned down by Ivan even though it promised him Champions League football [pause for laughter] - he elected to choose Brentford instead.

Yes, but then we get at least 1, maybe 1.5 BFC clowns joining in on twitter with some bullshit about Ivan Toney supporter the Black Panthers.

That's not helping...

The Black Panthers were a disciplined self-defense group, primarily defending a black community wiedely and violently excluded from universal suffrage by racist state institutions. If you have an alternative definition, I think you should take a good look at yourself

Easy tiger.
I think you’re swinging a punch at someone who’s not actually there (on this thread anyway).

No need to debate the Black Panthers as they have naff all to do with anything. It's a total red herring, laughable p*ss poor excuse for racism.

Yup. I tried to reason with him and quickly saw that there was little point

Ivan’s been racially abused again on Twitter, I see.

By a spotty geek Southampton fan from Axminster called Edward Cross.

The tweet has been reported.
