Bournemouth asks Twitter to act on racist abuse of Stanislas

Bournemouth says the racial abuse suffered by winger Junior Stanislas after scoring in a 1-0 win at Stoke was “disgusting and completely intolerable.”

BOURNEMOUTH, England — Racial abuse suffered by Bournemouth winger Junior Stanislas after scoring in a 1-0 win at Stoke was “disgusting and completely intolerable,” the south-coast English club said Sunday.

“It is both disgusting and completely intolerable that anyone could be subjected to the racial abuse that Junior has received,” Blake said. “I am astounded that people believe writing and posting these comments is acceptable.

Blake wants formal identification requirements to use social media accounts.

“We strongly believe that social media platforms need to take greater responsibility and accountability for the actions of their users and the content that is published on their platforms,” Blake said.

Bournemouth won the second-tier Championship game on Saturday.
