[Image] Picture Of Alleged Racist ‘Monkey Gesture’ – Man Now Arrested

Liverpool Monkey Gesture

This is the image that was posted on Twitter after Liverpool’s 2-1 victory over Manchester United in their FA Cup tie at Anfield on Saturday.

The picture shows a man sitting amongst Liverpool fans doing an apparent ‘money arms’ gesture. The incident comes off the back of the Luis Suarez and Patrice Evra affair, whereby the Liverpool striker was banned for eight games for being found guilty of using racist language towards the United defender.

Following the latest incident, Sky News have reported that a 59-year-old man from North Wales has since been arrested for a racially aggravated public order offence, and will now face questioning by police.

It’s not been proven if the man was aiming the gesture towards Evra, but it will go down as another dark day for the sport when the back pages will be filled with things other than football.

    What’s racist about a monkey though? Say he impersonated a horse, or a kangaroo, or a rat – would that be racist as well?

    Seriously Sparky, seriously, are you really as ignorant, naive, out of touch and deluded as this post would suggest? One sincerely hopes that this is a poor attempt at trolling because if it isn’t then you are without doubt one of the most stupid people that have ever accessed the internet!

    How dare he?

    This is absolutely disgusting behaviour compared to throwing rocks at the heads of helpless women in the name of ideology or beating the daylights out of someone because he is jewish.

    How about we saw his head off and put it on ebay?

    I bet you haven’t teh guts tp allow this

      “teh guts tp”? Nice work there Will.

      You are of course correct, every transgression should be measured against idealogical tortures or religious persecution.

      I think that’s how the courts work now, measure the offence of shoplifting against say genocide and then try and apportion punitive restoration based on a sliding scale.

      Roll on the day whenever the Will/Sparky coalition takes power and “common sense” pervades all!

        Brilliant response. The fact that people like him are in the minority is a blessing itself. Sadly, they’re procreating at a more rapid rate than the sensible….a bit like bacteria i suppose, actually, how brain cells to each have?

          At least bacteria have a use, not like the idiot doing that gesture at the highest profile game for a very long time. I really do despair at some “people”.

    I sooo don’t condone it, but (light-heartedly) he does look a bit like John McCrirrock doing his mad betting signals
