Ollie Robinson’s international future has been left in disarray as he faces an investigation after racist and sexist tweets from his past emerged.
The 27-year-old has been suspended from England duty after posts from 2012 and 2013 resurfaced during his debut – with the pace bowler left feeling “embarrassed and ashamed” and could be subjected to disciplinary action.
What did Ollie Robinson say in his tweet?
Robinson posted a series of revolting tweets at the age of 18, which resurfaced on his first day as an England player on Wednesday, June 2.
In 2012, Robinson tweeted using the n-word and another post said: “My new muslim friend is the bomb #wheeyyyyy.”
There were also sexist comments about “females who play video games actually tend to have more sex”.
The discovery of the vile tweets marred his England debut.
