Gogglebox Viewers Commend Mo Gilligan For Eloquently Capturing Bigotry Directed Against England Football Players

Mo Gilligan’s precise assessment of the bigotry directed towards England’s Black footballers has been praised by celebrity Gogglebox viewers.
On Friday night (16 July), the 33-year-old comedian featured on Channel 4’s entertainment series alongside fellow stand-up sensation Babatunde Aleshe.
The couple were seen viewing news headlines about Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, and Bukayo Saka receiving racial abuse after they missed penalties against Italy in the Euro 2020 final on Sunday (11 July).
“It’s the old adage that if you’re doing well, you’re English.”
“You’re Black if you’re not doing well,” Gilligan explained.
“It’s only a game, and the fact that some individuals are going to take it so far as to hurl racist slurs at players is something you should be ashamed of.”
“You really do,” Gilligan said, and fans praised him for his words, calling them “smart.”
“The sadness in @MoTheComedians voice on #CelebrityGogglebox killed me,” one viewer remarked, while another added, “@MoTheComedian nailing it there.” Mo Gilligan replied to racist abuse sent towards England’s Black football players (Channel 4) On Friday, Saka responded to the racist abuse he received during the match, penning in a statement: “There is no place for racism or hate of any sort in this country.”
“We will find you down,” the UK Football Policing Unit (UKFPU) has warned anyone who have posted nasty information on social media.
