David Robinson please be careful!
Remember those horrible reactions on Twitter to Tom Daley mentioning his recently deceased father in a tweet?
The Guardian reports that the teenager behind the Twitter account @Rileyy_69 has been arrested on suspicion of malicious communications. The 17-year-old is cooperating with police, and had issued an apology before his account was deleted.
This has been the first Olympic Games where social media has been a prominent presence. So naturally the best way to take advantage of this is to put your horrible racism on display for the world.
Swiss footballer Michel Morganella was expelled from the Olympic Games today after referring to the South Korean squad that had just defeated his team as "a bunch of mongoloids" on Twitter.
Morganella's coach was appropriately outraged:
"He discriminated, insulted and violated the dignity of the South Korean football team and people."
But don't worry, because according to Fifa president Sepp Blatter, "there's no racism in football."
