The Evening Standard have reported that Daniel Levy has been the latest Spurs figure to fall victim to vile online abuse this week.

The report claims that a tweet containing anti-semitic stereotypes was published with reference to Levy, although it has since been deleted.

The abuse was first highlighted by Tottenham fan and MP, David Lammy, and was then referenced by the club’s Twitter page.

Spurs tweeted: “We have reported this anti-Semitic post to Twitter and the police. “Disappointing that the tweet has yet to be deleted. Twitter needs to take immediate action against racists continuing to post abuse. Our internal review into a best course of action moving forward is underway.”

Unfortunately, this is becoming somewhat of a norm for Tottenham after two players were also recently subjected to racist abuse on social media following the games against Newcastle and Man United.

After the 2-2 draw against the Magpies, Davinson Sanchez received racist responses to an Instagram post.

Heung-min Son, who was at the centre of controversy against the Red Devils, was also said to have received racist abuse both in the replies of a Tottenham tweet and his own Instagram post.

The Evening Standard claim that the footballing world is becoming frustrated with the lack of action from the social media giants.
