Anti-Racism Campaigner Resigns From Anti-Racism Organization For Being Racist
If there’s one thing anti-racism organization Kick It Out should take away from this incident, it’s never trust a man that wore a jheri curl in 1992. Paul Elliott resigned his position from Kick It Out, the FA’s judicial panel and UEFA’s football committee after using a racial slur.
Ex-Celtic and Chelsea star Paul Elliott, a leading light of the Kick It Out campaign, made the slur against another former player, Richard Rufus.
Elliott, 48, launched the broadside in a text argument over a business venture that went wrong. He wrote to Rufus: “Ur a stupid man n*****” then added: “You dog. Ur history my friend.”
The row ended with Elliott, recently made a CBE for services to equality and diversity in the game, warning: “This will follow you scumbag.”
Wait, did I say that out loud? What I had meant to say was embigger not what you thought I said. I texted it? Fuck. Well then my phone was hacked? That’s all I got.
Elliott did the only thing he could after claiming the conversation was between two black people which was resign. He shouldn’t be out of work too long. He’ll get a bid to rush Chelsea Headhunters before too long.
