Acquittal in court

This act brought the young Irishman to court. There he was acquitted for showing remorse. Ian Wright, meanwhile, commented on the matter on Twitter, including the acquittal of the racist player. You can read his tweet below:

"I've heard the verdict and I'm disappointed," Wright wrote on the social media platform. Further: "This case was never about revenge, it was always about the consequences for racist behavior. The fact that I forgave this young man was an inner and personal need, and my desire to look ahead and the pain behind I am a 57 year old man who has experienced racism all his life. I did not expect my forgiveness to be seen as a ground for mild judgment. "

"When I see this verdict, I can't help but wonder what is preventing others from doing such racist and abusive acts," said Ian Wright's tweet.

He also writes: "Someone wished me dead, solely because of the color of my skin. No court ruling in the sense of" naivety "or" lack of maturity "will be acceptable to us. The presumed naivety, the alleged lack of maturity of our tormentors can never help us. Yes, I am disappointed. I am exhausted. We are all exhausted. "
