What are your thoughts on the Ian Wright/Patrick O'Brien situation?

I know he's only young, but my word what he said was disgraceful. I hope he genuinely is sorry.

Horrendous.
Most of it will probably be starred out.

I know I'm not meant to look at them but these messages still hit me so hard man. This is a child!!! "You are a ****ing monkey", "**** coon monkey ******". Direct message to me from Patrick O'Brien on IG. This kid as a direct line into me & is able to send this without any worry. https://t.co/6noGvmkb4u

Careful now, the thread on this in the Kerry Forum (and posts in Tralee thread) were locked/deleted by an overprotective Tralee based Mod.

It's quite disturbing that you'd even be able to come up with that amount of vitriol towards someone who seems just genuinely lovely and is loved by so many people. I hope the f*cker pays for it.

Adult teenager is what the news said, so he has to be 18 or 19. Old enough to know it's totally unacceptable.

Some might be protective of the family.

The young lad though deserves all the exposure coming his way.

Unless the offender is mentally ill, he should be punished and even made an example of. He has since come out to apologise and veer from the 'woz hacked, soz' excuse, but not good enough. That was some hardcore racism intended to cause maximum hurt, and he knew what he was doing.

Garda statement describe him as "a male, adult teenager" so we are probably talking 18 or 19, i.e. not a young kid who didn't know any better, so fück him and his abhorrent views.

Looks like the mod in the Kerry forum was more concerned with not prejudicing any trial. The Gardai asked for it to not be discussed on social media.
