A supporter has been resisted by brighton indefinitely to get a discriminatory social networking article aimed at Manchester City following the 4-0 away defeat.
The Twitter article – which has since been deleted – contained derogatory remarks over Man City’s possession and was made from the accounts of one of Brighton sites.
Having been made aware of the message and receiving complaints Brighton are understood to have contacted the group on the evening of the match, Saturday, August 31, to possess the post removed.
Brighton have now taken stern action.
A club announcement on Friday afternoon read:”Brighton & Hove Albion have excluded a buff indefinitely after a social networking post created in the wake of last weekend’s game in Manchester City.
“The exception follows numerous complaints from fans that found the post to be discriminatory.
“The club’s stance on all types of discrimination is apparent, it is summarized in our club charter, and that we simply will not tolerate any kind of discrimination – either in person, through social networking or another sort.
“We have reported this incident to Sussex Police, as have many others, and so the club will make no additional comment at this stage.”
