Chelsea's Tammy Abraham Targeted By 'Disgusting' Racist Abuse After His UEFA Super Cup PK Miss

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham was targeted for racial abuse on social media following their UEFA Super Cup final defeat on Wednesday night.
Abraham, 21 years of age, missed the decisive penalty in the shootout in Istanbul, with Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian saving the spot-kick with his legs.

And Kick It Out published a statement on Twitter on Thursday saying that the England youngster was racially abused on social media following the final whistle.

Kick It Out wrote: 

Last night we received reports of racist abuse directed at Tammy Abraham on social media after Chelsea's UEFA Super Cup match.

Such abuse is now increasingly predictable, but no less disgusting.

We send our support to Tammy and reiterate our call for Twitter and other social companies to clamp down on this level of abuse. This is a call to action - we want to know what they are going to do to tackle this insidious problem.

In the aftermath of the defeat, one social media user said: "F****** n*****", alongside a video of the Ku Klux Klan lynching.

Another Twitter user wrote: 

Tammy Abraham IS A F****** N*****', while another sickeningly said: 'you f****** black **** you ruined my night.
