England cricket star Ollie Robinson caught out posting “racist comments” is shamed

England fast bowler Ollie Robinson has been caught out by historical racist and sexist tweets.

The quickie said he was “embarrassed and ashamed” by the messages.

The comments made eight years ago came to light as Robinson made his England debut against New Zealand at Lord’s.


Before the game started both sides took a “Moment of Unity” stance against racism, religious intolerance, sexism, transphobia, homophobia, ableism, and ageism.

Robinson, 27, said in a statement:

“On the biggest day of my career so far, I am embarrassed by the racist and sexist tweets that I posted over eight years ago, which have today become public.

“I want to make it clear that I’m not racist and I’m not sexist. I deeply regret my actions, and I am ashamed of making such remarks.

“I was thoughtless and irresponsible, and regardless of my state of mind at the time, my actions were inexcusable.

Since that period, I have matured as a person and fully regret the tweets.”
