The continues the FA’s strong stance on abusive posts across the board, regardless of when they were posted. Last year, Middlesbrough’s Marc Bola was ordered to complete an education course over homophobic tweets he posted as a 14-year-old, while in 2021, West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen was dealt the same punishment for his use of a racial slur in a tweet posted at 15 years old.
