Tottenham News: Chairman Daniel Levy suffers racist abuse online after Heung-min Son

Following that incident, it has now come to light that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has been targeted by an user on Twitter. The post, that referenced anti-semitic tropes, was pointed out by Tottenham MP and Spurs fan David Lammy.
Tottenham swiftly issued a statement condemning the action while also calling out Twitter for not taking action against users who indulged in such actions.
“We have reported this anti-Semitic post to Twitter and the police. Disappointing that the tweet has yet to be deleted. @Twitter needs to take immediate action against racists continuing to post abuse. Our internal review into a best course of action moving forward is under way.”
While the tweet has been since deleted, regular occurrences of such incidents is unacceptable. Only a week ago, another of our player, Davinson Sanchez was subjected to vile abuse after our 2-2 draw against Newcastle United. Now it is Sonny and Levy and tomorrow it will be someone else. It is high time all the stakeholders decided to take some concrete action against this.
