Southampton striker Billy Sharp victim of vile abuse on Twitter from Doncaster fan

Daily Echo: Billy Sharp in action for Saints against West Ham Billy Sharp in action for Saints against West Ham

INVESTIGATIONS have been launched into sickening abuse sent to Saints striker Billy Sharp goading him over the heartbreaking death of his baby son.

The footballer was subjected to a barrage of messages over the Internet talking about the death of his two-day- old child last year.

Saints fans and supporters of other clubs have condemned the person behind the abuse, calling for police to take action.

The footballer and girlfriend Jade were hit by tragedy last October when their son, Luey Jacob, died through complications caused by gastroschisis – a herniatype birth defect.

Mr Sharp was playing for Doncaster Rovers at the time, and emotionally dedicated a goal to his child just three days later, revealing a T-shirt with the message “That’s for you son”.

The 26-year-old and Jade have since set up a charity, the Luey Jacob Sharp Foundation, which is aimed at supporting families affected by gastroschisis, and raising awareness of the condition.

Mr Sharp signed for Saints at the end of January for around £1.8m, having scored 40 goals in 82 appearances for Doncaster.

Fans were quick to condemn the string of offensive posts made on the social networking site Twitter.

They were posted by a user who called himself Chris Boyd, claiming to be a Doncaster fan, upset that the striker had left the club for Saints.

He posted them just hours after the footballer had played in Saints’ crunch Championship top-of-thetable draw at West Ham.

Mr Sharp yesterday used his personal Twitter account to respond to the comments, which have subsequently been deleted.

The footballer said: “Shallow little boy, hope you’re proud of yourself”.

Saints fans representative Nick Illingsworth called for police action.

He added: “If I was someone from Doncaster I would want them found, and probably want them in the stocks in the town centre.”

Doncaster Rovers have launched an investigation into the abuse, and vowed to take “appropriate action” if the person can be traced.

However it is understood the individual is not a season ticket holder, and not on the club’s database as a regular ticket buyer.

The club said in statement said: “The club will not tolerate the misuse of social media or obscene language in any way.”

Police in Hampshire and South Yorkshire said yesterday they had not received any complaints, but would investigate if anyone reported them.

As well as the possibility the comments could represent harassment, the tweets could fall foul of communications legislation, which says that it is illegal to send anything “indecent or offensive” that is aimed at “causing distress or anxiety” to either the recipient, or anyone else who could read it.

Well lets hope someone makes an official complaint to the police, then they can do their utmost to find the "person" who wrote those awful tweets and make an example of him.

Seems a bit strange that it came directly after the West Ham game and the account on twitter has been removed. I would think it was possibly a West ham supporter rather than a Donnie supporter. Either way it is very sick here is one of the views of the original tweet http://twitpic.com/8

A twitter friend of mine pointed these comments out to me and they are sickening. I honestly have no idea how even the most vile and lowest form of living creature could even contemplate such thoughts. After what Mr.Sharp and his girlfriend have been through these must have been very hurtful comments and his response was very dignified. I hope he can understand that no normal or decent human being would ever think such things. I hope that the club make an official complaint to the police because it does need invetigating. Best wishes to Mr.Sharp and his girlfriend.

I've no doubt it's a West Ham supporter. They were on his back throughout the game.

But this is the thing with twitter - you're free to post pretty much anything you like and twitter won't stop you. It's been in the news recently for not interfering in cases where people have been sharing links to pictures of child abuse. I guess the big downside of the internet is that it does make it an awful lot easier for people to be tw@ts. (As this site can often bear testament.)

I wish the Daily Echo would stop referring to Illingsworth and the other ginger fool as "Saints fans representative".

It seems that Billy Sharp - based on his response - is more than capable of rising above the despicable comments on twitter. I know from 1st hand experience that the death of an infant changes your perspective regarding many facets of everyday life, so all the very best to him and his partner.

I also feel this was a West Ham Supporter! After the sending off he took much abuse from the WH supporters! Also The football argument was fuelled on Twitter by none other than Ian Abrahams Talk Sport, which again was totally unnecessary!
Hopefully Billy will rise above these sick, vile minded people!
To loose a child so soon after birth will live with him forever. Stay strong Billy! Southampton fans are 100% behind you

Sorry, but there's no job on earth that comes with terms that allow anyone to bully, abuse or slander you. Would love to know what job you do, and what your employer would make of your statement.

And i believe pro footballer is a job, and a career. A very priveleged one for some but a job none-the-less.

I saw this idiots comments on twitter last night and believe me, they me feel disgusted that another (so called) human being could be so cruel.

I (for what its worth) commend Billy for his reply to Chris Boyd, the Doncaster Rovers fan (who allegedly) wrote them.

If its found out that the creature is a fan of Billy's former I would call on that club to ban the horrible creature for life.

I know what Billy Sharp's gone through as I've been there myself. He's a very brave man to uproot and move 200 miles at this very difficult time. Looking at the recent Stan Collymore case it's clear that people are abusing Twitter, they'd never make these comments to people in person. For all the banter we have on this site I hope no one takes what I say personally.

Well done Billy for rising above some sick little boy. I've no doubt this was an idiot asscoiated with West Ham as well. What a shame some people can't differeniate between football match emotions and real life. I hope they never have to go through what Billy and Jade have been through.

I'd also be disappointed if the police didn't prosecute for this. I am all for freedom of speech, but Twitter needs to take a much tougher stance on threatening and abusive behaviour. Maybe an IQ test as well before signing up? Just an idea. In this case it would have got rid of at least one moron.

It is ironic to think that the idiot was not aware that he would be traced, even worse if he wasn't bright enough to know he was breaking the law. As do several others that post mesages on any site, libel laws still apply, I don't know how diffficult it is to prosecute though or what the success rate of previous cases has been.

I'd like to think that the club would take this forward with the police, what with one of their employees being subjected to this vile behaviour. I've no idea on any success rates for prosecution, but this idiot needs to be made an example of. This individual is representative of a number of people who think it fine to post mindless tweets.

It was just a figure of speech ever heard of that?

Your words come from the heart mate, it was a disgusting act committed by a sub human, in the context of what was written by the creature, your words are tame.

God forbid what? A few words posted on a Social media site?

Whilst sickening, I fail to understand why someone in the media spotlight would take any notice.

It's more the fans kicking off.

If you accept pay for being a so called celeb/player, sometimes you have to accept the rubbish that comes with it.

I very much doubt a teen is a threat and had no intention of being nasty, he was just being a teen.

As vile as his comments were, he probably thought he was being a football fan!

Actually the comments from pompey phil show the human side to us football fans. Normally we are seen as the enemy (Scum and Skates) but his comments show that the vile comments posted on twitter are from pondlife. And before someone comes on here and ssya football fans cant read then how come i went to a well know private school in hill lane and went onto study at a top university. Iron lady if you detest football then stay off the football sites. Pompey Phil good luck in finding a new owner hope we can continue the friendly rivalry.

Yes I get it, all football fans are morons so why the fuss over such a comment from a so called one? Actually some of us hold down jobs and have joined up writing and scrub up well once we've shaved the palms of our hands! The suggestion that it is acceptable because he is a paid footballer or that this fan wasn't being 'nasty' just a fan shows that you are ignorant and insensitive and probably spend too much time in that wine bar! Wouldn't be a pub would it! Why don't you just leave the lower classes to their forum and have another chardonnay.

I am not a football fan but have all my sympathy with Saints star and his family.

How sick some worse than low life from cesspit could have posted such hurtful comment on twitter aimed at person who lost his baby boy in the first place, then what kind of person is JK on this thread who rather than having sympathy for parents who have suffered such loss decides to insult the father? It is beyond belief. Hardly surprising the JK has not got the guts to post cold blooded comment under his/her identifiable name
.
All those on this site who very rightly disassociated with JK’s remarks deserve praise. Yes on this site we often disagree with each other on various issues, but we share basic human values.

Blimey, talk about getting excited! It would appear some young lad said a few words (which were sick), this lad by all accounts is a teen who knows no better, probably bought up as a footie fan so no sense etc.

You'd think this lad had sent a letter bomb which went off! For god's sake, he sent a stupid message on twitter, get over it!

I was sad enough to troll through the echo comments, alot of people would be up on a charge! But it's just text, you create an internet, you live with it!

OR? What if he does show his face?

What the lad said was wrong, but he's an immature lad and you're supposedly a mature adult?

I think you're both wrong on this issue ;-)

Oh dear, where did you come from?

We are talking about the written word. Would it have to written in a gossip magazine for you to realise that the comments were so wrong?! The Internet is not just a place for kids to abuse people then laugh it off.

How can you be so stupid. Your comments are not appropriate or welcome here, football fan or it.

Your clearly so much better than the rest of us....are you sat alone in your wine bar now, sat in the corner on your own finding it funny to comment on something you clearly do not understand.

Maybe all the alcohol has destroyed your brain cells?!

One final point - you mock football fans Do you not realise all the good that football brings to this world? Keeping young kids off the streets, giving them ambition and purpose and the skills to function as a team. A sport that does so much for charities all across the world and is tackling major issues such as racism and gives hope to young kids in poor nations. Are they just all hooligans too?

I've rarely taken a dislike to a poster but you seem to take the biscuit!

Without causing an argument, your words are no better than his? Stringing up and battering??? You're all as bad as each other when it comes to football, I really don't understand the need for violence from either side!
Actually the comments from pompey phil show the human side to us football fans. Normally we are seen as the enemy (Scum and Skates) but his comments show that the vile comments posted on twitter are from pondlife. And before someone comes on here and ssya football fans cant read then how come i went to a well know private school in hill lane and went onto study at a top university. Iron lady if you detest football then stay off the football sites. Pompey Phil good luck in finding a new owner hope we can continue the friendly rivalry.
I would love to stay off football sites, but the echo insist in posting the rubbish in NEWS!

When a topic is posted in news I have as much right to reply as you do. I do not venture into the sport section!
Thank god!
What, that I'm not sad? Watching men running around in tight shorts chasing balls.

Prefer to go to a wine bar and hold a conversation with friends.
About 20 posts between 4.22 and 11pm tells me you haven't got any friends to go to a wine bar and hold a conversation with. Sad - very, very sad.

I'd also be disappointed if the police didn't prosecute for this. I am all for freedom of speech, but Twitter needs to take a much tougher stance on threatening and abusive behaviour. Maybe an IQ test as well before signing up? Just an idea. In this case it would have got rid of at least one moron.
It is ironic to think that the idiot was not aware that he would be traced, even worse if he wasn't bright enough to know he was breaking the law. As do several others that post mesages on any site, libel laws still apply, I don't know how diffficult it is to prosecute though or what the success rate of previous cases has been.
What was libellous about the message? I'm actually asking, as I don't know the content of it. It's not libellous just because it's nasty, though.

Each to their own though, petsonally I'd rather assume the position of the victim and imagine how that'd feel. Made me sick.

We are incredibly fortunate to live in a society which allows freedom of speech. People are entitled to their opinions, of course. And for what it's worth, this is mine ...

Aside from the football connections, this is a story about one human being taunting another about the most life-shattering of circumstances - The loss of a child. There is no excuse for this grotesque behaviour. I does not matter that football is involved, although it does reflect badly on the beautiful game.

Perhaps the perpetrator is a teenager who has no perspective or empathy? Perhaps they support a rival club and feel aggrieved by something Billy Sharp has done on the pitch? Perhaps perhaps perhaps. None of this excuses their actions.

I whole-heartedly disagree with the comments on here about people who are in the public eye having to accept that this sort of thing might happen to them. Just because they have a public profile, doesn’t mean they have to waive their right to fair treatment from other human beings. Have a little sympathy for crying out loud.

Ok, so I’m a Saints supporter and I have a slightly biased view on this. But it is clear to me that Billy Sharp is an honest professional and a decent person who conducts himself with dignity on and off the pitch (not one red card in his entire professional career). Does he deserve hateful comments from an alleged fan? Does Jade deserve them? The answer is emphatically ‘no’. Surely only the coldest of individuals could disagree.

My sympathy goes out to Billy and Jade. I hope they never have to put up with such disrespectful comments from small-minded idiots again.

Whilst sickening, I fail to understand why someone in the media spotlight would take any notice.

It's more the fans kicking off.

If you accept pay for being a so called celeb/player, sometimes you have to accept the rubbish that comes with it.

I very much doubt a teen is a threat and had no intention of being nasty, he was just being a teen.

As vile as his comments were, he probably thought he was being a football fan!
I have to agree. This is not the end of thw world.
It's not the end of the World, no - but to so casually dismiss such appaling behaviour is to almost condone it.
The only person who can say whether someone condones the behaviour or not, is the person in question. Stop trying to re-invent yourself as a mind-reader. I wonder why you're so desperate to see the worst in people

Exactly! I can't understand why anyone cannot see this. Not to condemn such an act is effectively saying that it's acceptable just because he works in the public eye!
Err, I HAVE condemned the act. I don't see why anything that isn't actual baying for blood has to be considered condonement. To make comments about someone's recently-deceased child is twisted. I don't think anybody disagrees with that. But beyond that, is there anything further to be said? Is it really a matter for the police? Do you really want it to be illegal for people to say unpleasant things to one another?

It's purely a matter of common sense. We in this country, have bent over so far backwards to be 'fair', we seem to have lost sight of ordinary common sense. To say that these remarks caused no harm is naieve and disingenuous. It is about what's right and what's acceptable and the person who made these comments, if not made to understand why it is wrong, and to suffer consequences will only go on to escalate. No one just goes out to rob a bank nor to commit other serious crimes without forewarning. It starts in a small way, stealing sweets or whatever, and I know that many children grow out of this behaviour but it all begins like this. If you cannot see just how wrong this behaviour is then it is a sad indictment of our society that anyone can be so inured to atrocity that they find this behaviour merely a minor annoyance.

I think as a society we need to draw a line on what is & what isn't acceptable behaviour & stop molly coddling.

It's the old broken window philosophy.

You say: "I hope this is properly invesigated, and the perpetrator dealt with severely to show the other retards out there that you cannot get away with this kind of abuse"

In what way are you not calling the perpetrator a retard?

"it is illegal to send anything “indecent or offensive” that is aimed at “causing distress or anxiety” to either the recipient, or anyone else who could read it".

God forbid what? A few words posted on a Social media site?

Whilst sickening, I fail to understand why someone in the media spotlight would take any notice.

It's more the fans kicking off.

If you accept pay for being a so called celeb/player, sometimes you have to accept the rubbish that comes with it.

I very much doubt a teen is a threat and had no intention of being nasty, he was just being a teen.

As vile as his comments were, he probably thought he was being a football fan!
I have to agree. This is not the end of thw world.
It's not the end of the World, no - but to so casually dismiss such appaling behaviour is to almost condone it.
Exactly! I can't understand why anyone cannot see this. Not to condemn such an act is effectively saying that it's acceptable just because he works in the public eye!
Err, I HAVE condemned the act. I don't see why anything that isn't actual baying for blood has to be considered condonement. To make comments about someone's recently-deceased child is twisted. I don't think anybody disagrees with that. But beyond that, is there anything further to be said? Is it really a matter for the police? Do you really want it to be illegal for people to say unpleasant things to one another?
I think as a society we need to draw a line on what is & what isn't acceptable behaviour & stop molly coddling.

It's the old broken window philosophy.

By arguing against my straightforward comment you look weak & a bit of a liberal.
Right. Broken windows. Do we fix society by making broken windows illegal, then?

It's purely a matter of common sense. We in this country, have bent over so far backwards to be 'fair', we seem to have lost sight of ordinary common sense. To say that these remarks caused no harm is naieve and disingenuous. It is about what's right and what's acceptable and the person who made these comments, if not made to understand why it is wrong, and to suffer consequences will only go on to escalate. No one just goes out to rob a bank nor to commit other serious crimes without forewarning. It starts in a small way, stealing sweets or whatever, and I know that many children grow out of this behaviour but it all begins like this. If you cannot see just how wrong this behaviour is then it is a sad indictment of our society that anyone can be so inured to atrocity that they find this behaviour merely a minor annoyance.
Who said anything about fairness? Common sense? Where's the common sense in calling the police every time someone says something unpleasant? Where's the common sense in villifying one person who says something derogatory, ignoring the millions of others who are doing so, simply because he chose to be derogatory toward someone famous?

Funnily enough, I'm being painted as some lily-livered liberal for some reason, but the thinking that says "arrest the man who tweeted something nasty" is the same thinking that wants kids involved in playground scuffles to be arrested and prosecuted for "assault". Talk to me about common sense, please.

Pnce you begin ignoring the graffiti and broken windows, then it escalates until we are living in ghettos of lawlessness. If anyone cannot see that this is no different then there is something wrong. I have not called this person names, but they DO need to be called to account and made to realise what is wrong with their behaviour. It's not just calling names, it is behaviour designed to stress and cause mental harm. A mother and her disabled daughter were subjected to behaviour like this and it was ignored, just kids, a few names. She killed herself and her daughter but it's not serious is it!!!

what was said was more than unpleasant, it was sick, vile, evil and repugnant. by punishing the "person" who did this to someone famous, you send a warning to all those who do it to others.

what was said was more than unpleasant, it was sick, vile, evil and repugnant. by punishing the "person" who did this to someone famous, you send a warning to all those who do it to others.

*headdesk* I do understand what so many people are upset about. Just because I don't share the bloodlust of the rest of you, doesn't mean I don't understand it. I just don't think it's a matter for the law. But hey, let's just arrest everyone for everything, and the world will magically turn into a fairytale toytown, with candy floss trees and streets paved with marshmallows
