Marcus Rashford has now reacted to receiving racist abuse on social media after the Arsenal match on Sunday, MySportDab reports.
After the Arsenal game, Instagram users posted monkey emojis on his page, and another person said he should ‘go back to the zoo’.
The 23-year-old is the latest Manchester United footballer to be targeted after team-mates Axel Tuanzebe and Anthony Martial earlier this week.
Chelsea defender Reece James and West Brom’s Romaine Sawyers have also been attacked on social media.
In response to the racist abuse, Rashford wrote on Twitter: ‘This is the worst of Humanity and social media.
‘Yes I’m proud to be a black man and I live happily every day knowing that i am. Your comments won’t change how i feel. Am sorry to disappoint you.
”I won’t be sharing screenshots. It would be irresponsible and there’s nothing original about it. I have children from different races following me and they don’t have to read that.”
For the most part of 2020, Rashford campaigned for free school meals in the UK and urged the Government to make some U-turns which has seen more meals being provided.
In December, Rashford was rewarded with an award at the BBC’s Sports Personality of the year show for his work.
Manchester United have previously condemned the racist abuse at Tuanzebe and Martial earlier in the week and asked for social media giants to ‘strengthen measures’.
The Red Devils’ Director of Communications, Charlie Brooks, said United players are ‘sick’ of the abuse online.
However, It was revealed that Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter will face massive fines for the abuse of footballers, if they don’t protect them.
On Friday, Chelsea also condemned the racist abuse of James and demanded that something must change.
