CelebnSports247.com reports that American professional soccer player Mark McKenzie who plays for the Belgian Pro League club Genk received tons of racist comments from fans online.
22-year-old Mark McKenzie — who struggled in the huge 3-2 win — said the “racial abuse” and “personal attacks” were rampant … and even affected family members.
On Wednesday, his team ripped all of the vitriol … saying anyone sending the comments McKenzie’s way (and any other player’s way, for that matter) needs to stop ASAP.
the org. said:
This type of behavior should not and cannot be allowed to continue. If you make racist, homophobic, vulgar or disrespectful comments while hiding behind the anonymity of social media, you are not a true fan. And you are not welcome. Ever.
On Tuesday, Gregg Berhalter had this to say about the racial abuse directed anonymously via social media towards USMNT defender Mark McKenzie this week.
