Nottingham Trent University withdraws student’s offer due to racist Snapchat targeting English players

Posted on

A university has withdrawn an offer to a student after racist insults against England players after the Euro 2020 final.

Video footage of a Snapchat group chat circulated on Instagram in which one person heard racist language against Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka, who each missed penalties in the Wembley shootout.

A spokesperson for Nottingham Trent University said: “This allegation does not involve any NTU student. We do not tolerate discrimination of any kind, including racism.

“We immediately investigated this matter and therefore withdrew an offer to an applicant.”

Police have arrested five people for racially insulting English players online since Sunday’s defeat to Italy.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson revealed on Wednesday that the government plans to extend football bans for online racism, while social media companies face hefty fines if they fail to remove abuse from their platforms.
