Eric Bristow number one trend
Retired Darts legend Eric Bristow MBE was the number one trend in the UK on Monday night following a string of horrific tweets about the sexual abuse victims.
A pundit on Sky Sports for years, Bristow described the victims of the sexual abuse scandal as “wimps”, whilst labelling the paedophile who abused them as a “poof”.
Surely the man is in serious danger of being stripped of his MBE. We hope so.

If Eric Bristow deletes those tweets and makes an apology, it’ll be the first 180 he’s made in years.
