Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “‘Global racism mastermind finally caught’? UK police arrest 12yo boy over racist threats to football player Wilfried Zaha”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

“Woke up to this today,” Zaha wrote. Screenshots of the messages included a threat to come to the athlete’s house “dressed as a ghost” if he scored in his upcoming match. Zaha also added a screenshot of the account that had sent the messages his way.

The extreme nature of the messages immediately kicked off a campaign of solidarity with Zaha. “This is abhorrent, unacceptable and criminal. There can be no room for racism of any kind in football or a civil society,” Claudia Webbe, the Labor Member of Parliament for Leicester East, tweeted.
