Disgusting comments from that guy. I hope Wright gets justice.

Not an arsenal fan but wright was some goal machine in his day. Loved watching him

Would hate to have had social media when i was younger. I'd be mortified by some of the stuff looking back.

Lol; I remember that.

I don't really follow football but is Ian Wright still in the public eye as a pundit or whatever? I'd have thought this little toerag would be too young to be familiar with him. He seems like a very random target.

As vile as it is what was said I don't believe for a second some one could be that supid
I really sincerely doubt that he was hacked.
He said he was... and said a load of other racist abuse was sent to other well known people at the same time....yet zero evidence of that happening.
Plus there seem to be screenshots of him apologising and saying he made a mistake etc so in other words...he wasn't hacked.

Ah the old classic "I am not racist but..." sure I have black friends and everything....
He is a scumbag and deserves everything that is coming to him.

The account only posted 2 messages before it went private and those were the racist messages.

I doubt it was hacked.

Who would hack it as he is supposed to be staying away from other people due to social distancing? Who would pick up someone else's phone in these current circumstances? His bs excuse doesn't add up at all.

It would be horrible if he just called him racist slurs, but he threatened to kill him. Zero sympathy.

And do you think the people who would carry out a physical assault, with the real possibility of it going wrong and the young lad being crippled for life or dying, would be any better than the lad. The messages are horrible but someone willing to carry out such an attack is worse.

How about people leave it to the Gardaí to determine the punishment. He has already done plenty of damage to himself by sending that and it going viral. Can’t imagine people will be lining up to give him a job in future.

You don't need someone's phone to access their account.

However, I don't believe for a second that any form of "hacking" occurred in this instance.

Agree with everyone that its scummy and nasty what this kid posted but one time i would love for someone like him to highlight the messages he received and offer some kind of forgiveness to the kid without demands for action.Its still only words from a dumb kid.

I am sure the public at large would take care of whatever if any legal action was necessary once he highlighted it,if people in positions of influence like Wright is,appeared more forgiving not only would it affect the kid more positively it would affect race relations in a more positive way.

Instead he is publicly highlighting that yeah us Black people are easily affected by these words,other Black kids that look to him as a role model are then going to be equally offended if anyone calls them monkey or whatever it is,it only gives people more of an incentive to do it again when they want to hurt somebody and the cycle goes on until somebody is the bigger man.

i doubt the lad himself actually holds genuine deeply held racist views, just a little **** out for attention saying the most inflammatory stuff that he knows will get him such attention. controversy is their oxygen.
