The FA tweeted ‘Have you been victim of discrimination?’ 2 minutes after Kieran Gibbs was wrongly sent off!
— The FA (@FA) March 22, 2014
The above Tweet was made at 1.02 pm, exactly 2 minutes after Kieran Gibbs was wrongly sent off in the place of Kieran Gibbs.
We’re not suggesting for one second that the ref was racist with his incompetent mistake, but with such sinister theories being bandied about, this Tweet is pretty funny seen in that light.
In fact some people are now jokingly passing the Tweet onto Gibbs for his information.
Either someone at the FA has a wicked sense of humour, or this was a truly incredible and unfortunate coincidnece!
