Wilfried Zaha has revealed another string of vile racist abuse sent to his Instagram account.
On Sunday, the Crystal Palace forward revealed racist abuse sent from an account ahead of their game against Aston Villa, with West Midlands Police later arresting a 12-year-old boy from Solihull in connection with the messages.
Now, the 27-year-old has revealed the daily abuse he is subjected to and has called on social media companies to require personal details of people looking to set up accounts to prevent those sending the abuse from hiding.
Amidst an impassioned plea for action, the Palace star cited two examples of abuse from the past 24 hours in reaction to Sunday's incident.
"This is why I don't tend to talk, even though I get stupid, racist messages every single day of my life," Zaha said via his Instagram account.
"The other day, I thought: 'You know, I'm going to out this person'. [It] happened to be a 12-year-old, how can you have such hatred at 12 and send those type of things? It doesn't make a difference to me how old he is.
"Social platforms like Instagram, Twitter... to make a change, for people to not be able to do this stuff and be held accountable for the stuff they send, everyone should put their details - where you live, everything - to be able to have an account, so you don't get these messages.
"For all the kind, supportive messages people have been sending, I want action. I want change. Instagram, Twitter; unless people give their proper, full details, they should not be allowed to make an account because that is all cowards do. These stupid, racist cowards hide behind accounts. It is going to carry on, we can put it everywhere, on the news or whatever, it is going to carry on. Until these things are changed, I don't want to hear anything, honestly, sorry."
West Midlands Police said on Monday they had released the 12-year-old arrested under investigation and were "attempting to contact" Zaha for a statement.
Sheffield United striker David McGoldrick also revealed racist abuse suffered following the Blades' win over Chelsea at the weekend, while the Professional Footballers' Association and Kick it Out have also called for tighter regulation of social media.
Sanjay Bhandari, the chair of Kick It Out, said: "Twitter, Facebook and Instagram are like the Wild West. To address this we need social media companies to do more. We also need a concerted and sustained effort between government, law enforcement and the football authorities to prioritise the gathering of evidence and prosecution of online hate. We need to show the online haters that they will be tracked and that there are consequences for their actions."
