As well as being booed, England players were subjected to racist abuse last night. Raheem Sterling, for instance, was pelted with cups as he celebrated his first goal in the game. People also reported hearing monkey chants from the stands, causing politicians and other figures to speak out against the racism.
Yet Fox decided to plant himself firmly on the wrong side of the argument by celebrating the booing.
Unsurprisingly, as a result, he received a comprehensive dressing-down:
@LozzaFox "... poor old oppressed millionaires! Spoiled little woke babies"
All of them became millionaires through… https://t.co/0JV5w7LgWz
He even said he wanted the team to lose, though he later apologised and said he was being a “d*ck” in a rare moment of self-awareness. Clearly the lesson he had ‘learned’ had gone in one ear and out the other, however.
England won 4-0 in the game against Hungary last night but it seems clear the biggest loser associated with the match is Fox.
