Premier League footballer Mason Holgate is banned from playing for homophobic tweets


Premier League footballer Mason Holgate is facing a potential ban after authorities opened an investigation into his homophobic tweets with F-slurs and other anti-gay jokes he used to make in 2012-2013. The Football Association will look into the tweets – which surfaced after the 21-year-old was involved in a fiery on-pitch coming-together with Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino on Friday and he was forced to quit Twitter. The England under-21 international was 15 when he wrote the first two tweets, and 16 when he wrote the other two. Another Premier League footballer, Andre Gray, was banned for four games in 2016 over tweets suggesting that gays should “burn” and “die”. He wrote: “Is it me or are there gays everywhere? #Burn #Die #MakesMeSick”
