Arsenal hunting down racist tweet Bukayo Saka

Arsenal intensifies search for racist who abused Bukayo Saka on social media, working with data science company Signify to unmask troll.

Arsenal is intensifying their efforts to track down a racist individual who targeted Bukayo Saka with abusive comments on social media. The Premier League club took action by contacting Twitter to request the removal of the offensive post. They have now partnered with a data science company, Signify, to uncover the identity of the perpetrator using AI technology.

In a similar vein, last year, 18 Arsenal fans were banned as a result of investigations conducted by Signify. The Metropolitan Police in London has also confirmed that they are looking into the offensive post, although no arrests have been made yet.

The incident occurred after Saka, who played in a recent match against Aston Villa, was subjected to a reprehensible slur by an individual claiming he needed to be "humbled" for his actions during a previous game. The abusive post has since been made private, leaving uncertainty as to whether it has been deleted.

Despite efforts to report the offensive content, Twitter has refused to remove it, citing compliance with safety policies. Arsenal remains committed to ensuring the well-being of their players, with a focus on supporting Saka during this challenging time. The club has launched its own investigation and is determined to identify the individual responsible for the abuse.

This is not the first time Saka has faced racial abuse, as he, along with Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho, was targeted after missing penalties in the Euro 2020 final. Arsenal's collaboration with Signify underscores their commitment to eradicating such abhorrent behavior from the sport.
