We missed this yesterday, largely because a summer of trudging through the inane tweets of shallow footballers is breaking our will.
After hearing the news that John Terry’s dad was charged for a racially aggravated attack, Anton Ferdinand released the below tweet.
Okay he’s no Mark Twain when it comes to the wit but considering he’s a professional footballer and is genetically very similar to Rio Ferdinand, this is pretty darn good.
I’m making no comment on Terry’s dad or the Chelsea player’s own involvement in racist incidents. Let’s just enjoy the tweet and worry about the depth of society’s ills tomorrow. Maybe Friday.
