I’ve been deeply upset and hurt by the unforgivable hypocrisy and inconsistency of my club @arsenal.
In December 2019 @m10_official spoke up about the persecution of the Uighur Muslims in China and Arsenal released the following statement in response:
“The content published is Ozil's personal opinion. As a football club, Arsenal has always adhered to the principle of not involving itself in politics.”
Since this statement, @arsenal have admirably and correctly given their backing to important POLITICAL causes such as #BlackLivesMatter and #EndSARS but have still not explained why they ‘distanced’ themselves from comments supporting Uighur Muslims.
What have the Uighur Muslims done to be treated with such contempt by a club that ordinarily does such good work around the world and has always been on the right side when getting involved in moral and political issues.
However frustrating I find Arsenal’s inconsistency on the pitch, I can understand that this is the nature of sport.
But I can’t understand Arsenal’s inconsistency off the pitch. This is not the nature of morality and social justice.
For the first time in my life, I’m truly ashamed of my club.

Finally, @m10_official, keep fighting the fight brother. ✊🏽
Oh my days @bukayosaka87! 🤯
You need to write a letter of apology to Lazaro, his mother, his children, his friend and his country.
That is just sheer disrespect! 🔥

So many mixed emotions right now.
A one in a lifetime opportunity for what can only be described as a ‘glitch in the matrix’ has come and gone.
To all of those people who voted Labour and are struggling financially, the disabled, those using food banks, those struggling with mental health, the homeless, the discriminated against, the marginalised and the environment, my heart really really goes out to you and I hope your situations improve.
To all of the people who are afflicted by the above issues, but who voted for Boris Johnson’s Conservatives, you have handed Boris the axe. I don’t know whether you should receive sympathy or spite.
The media. The millionaires. The billionaires. The bigots. The opportunists. The racists. Congratulations.
@jeremycorbyn, Thank you for fighting the good fight. 🌹
The system has won. Again.
