A children’s football coach who looks like a shit version of Dave Bautista has been arrested over a racist Tweet he sent to Marcus Rashford following England’s Euro cup final loss to Italy on Sunday.

Nick Scott, 50, was detained on suspicion of inciting racial hatred after he sent the following message on Twitter…
I guess if you’re dumb enough to be a racist, you’re also dumb enough to Tweet that sort of thing from your personal Twitter account without understanding the sort of trouble it will land you in.
Sure enough, a bunch of people flagged the post and Nick was arrested. The 50-year-old has since been released under investigation, but denies sending the message and insists his account was hacked. Well of course!
Nick, from Powick, near Worcester, told The Sun:
I didn’t send it mate – I’ve been hacked. I didn’t post it.
The first I learned about it was this morning when I woke up. I’m seeing my solicitor in the morning. I don’t know who hacked me.
Why would anyone hack a random 50-year-old football coach’s Twitter account to send racial abuse at Marcus Rashford? Beats me. But according to Nick Scott, that’s what happened. Somehow I don’t think the investigation will back up his version of events, but who knows? Maybe there really is some computer wizard out there with a vendetta against him.
Meanwhile, the Marcus Rashford mural in Manchester which was vandalised after the game has now been covered in supportive messages by locals, which is pretty awesome to see…
Over a million people have also signed a Change.org petition to ban racists for life from all football matches taking place in England.
The petition reads:
Gareth Southgate’s England team plays for ALL of us. Their vision is an inclusive vision and this matters more than EVER – it’s why we feel proud of this team and why they’re so cherished and loved by many of us.
There should be no room for racists and bigotry in football or society.
Can’t argue with that. Might Nick Scott be the first person issued a lifetime ban from football matches in England? I guess that depends on the outcome of the investigation into his Tweet. Although he should probably be more worried about retaining his job as a kids’ football coach. Not really ideal to have a guy like that coaching young boys and girls, is it?
