Racism towards Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) is growing as a global problem.
Son Heung-min was racially discriminated against during an away game at Crystal Palace on the 6th. Crystal Palace fans made eye-tearing gestures towards Son Heung-min, which meant racism to disparage Asians. Some fans were known to mock Son Heung-min by raising his middle finger.
It is a racial discrimination case that broke out again in just a few days. Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler (77) made racist remarks to Son Heung-min while commentating on the match between Tottenham and Liverpool on the 1st. He said “I do martial arts” when Son Heung-min used his hand in the process of blocking Liverpool’s Cody Hagpo in the 7th minute of the second half. It is an expression that demeans Asians.토토사이트
The Tottenham club also announced a hard response to racial discrimination against Son Heung-min. Tottenham said on the club website on the 7th, “We know that Son Heung-min suffered racial discrimination in the match against Crystal Palace. Discrimination of any kind is unacceptable in our club. We will take strong action at the club level.”
The world is outraged by Son Heung-min’s racist case. Nigerian media ‘Opera News’ said, “Racial abuse makes fans dangerous and uncomfortable. When racial abuse is tolerated, it can have adverse effects on football and society as a whole. It sets a bad example for future generations. No race should be discriminated against. All players in the football world must take an active stance,” he stressed
