LONDON —Derbyshire Police have opened an investigation into alleged racist
comments against Chelsea defender Ashley Cole on Twitter, four days after club
teammate John Terry was cleared of racial abuse. Ryan Fitzpatrick Womens Jersey . Cole, who
defended Terry in court from charges made by Queens Park Rangers player Anton
Ferdinand, was reportedly referred to as a “Choc Ice” by a Twitter user. The
term is believed to be mean black on the outside, white on the inside.
Ferdinands older brother, Rio, who plays for Manchester United, responded to the
tweet on Saturday with: “I hear you fella! Choc ice is classic hahahahahaha!!”
Many Twitter users immediately expressed concern about what Ferdinand was
implying about Cole, prompting Ferdinand to tweet later that day: “And if I want
to laugh at something someone tweets….I will! Hahahahaha! Now stop getting ya
knickers in a twist!”. Cole tried to defuse the situation on Sunday by releasing
a statement through his lawyers, saying he “has no intention of making a
complaint.” “Ashley Cole has been made aware of the discussion following
comments appearing on Twitter and wishes to make it clear that he and Rio
Ferdinand are good friends … and Ashley appreciates that tweeting is so quick
it often results in off-hand and stray comments.” Ferdinand took to Twitter
again on Sunday to explain himself, saying: “What I said yesterday is not a
racist term. Its a type of slang/term used by many for someone who is being
fake. So there.” Derbyshire Police said the initial tweet that was responded to
by Ferdinand is under investigation because of complaints from members of the
public. England Football Association chairman David Bernstein is due to appear
before the British Parliament on Tuesday to talk about football governance. But
with racism the dominating topic in English football lately, he could be forced
to elaborate on further measures the FA could take to eradicate racism from the
game. Stephon Gilmore Jersey . The veteran Calgary
