English soccer player Ravel Morrison sends homophobic tweet to fan

Soccer player Ravel Morrison, formerly of Manchester United and now with West Ham of the English Premier League, is in hot water after sending a homophobic tweet to a fan. From Goal.com:

Morrison’s tweet, which has since been deleted, read: “crack head ? Go suck out u little faggot your a guy that talks if u see me you try slap me I'm in manchester every week.”

Alan Duffy of the Justin Campaign, which fights homophobia in soccer, condemned Morrison's tweet:

"It's extremely disappointing to hear that yet another professional footballer in England has used homophobic language,” Mr Duffy told Goal.com

“Ravel Morrison may well not be aware of the damage those kind of remarks can do, but when football stars indulge in that kind of language, it only reinforces the view that football is not a welcoming place of LGBT fans or players."

Morrison, 19, has been in trouble before. Goal.com says he has also faced allegations of witness intimidation and an altercation with his girlfriend. I guess a homophobic tweet is par for the course.
