Lots of people are defending the Chelsea fan against claims of racism vs Man City’s Raheem Sterling

Chelsea fan vs Man City’s Raheem Sterling

One of the big talking points after Chelsea beat Man City on Saturday in the Premier League is what one fan shouted at Raheem Sterling.

The likes of Rio Ferdinand and Ian Wright have lead the calls on Twitter that Sterling was subjected to racism.

On the video grabs from the match, the Chelsea fan stands accused of screaming “f****** black c***” at the Man City star.

By Sunday morning the videos have been watched millions of times on the social network.

Defending the Chelsea supporter

Twitter can be a grim place at times.

While the majority of people seem convinced that the Chelsea fan was obviously racist towards Sterling, not everyone agrees.

Plenty of people have defended the Chelsea supporter.

The defences have ranged from the questionable to outright ridiculous.

One of the more arguably points is what the Chelsea fan actually said.

Many are claiming that the word “black” was never said, but rather “Manc”, as in Manchester City.

Others have tried to suggest that other pieces of circumstantial evidence reveals the fan wasn’t being racist.
