    Yeah I understand that. But can they really justify doing it considering so many examples previously were not sanctioned to this extent.

    "Whataboutism" is never a good look...

    Didn't Haney say he would never lose to a white guy?

    AJ said that the black race is superior. He also said that black people shouldn't shop at stores owned by white people.

    I don't remember either of them being punished.

    In reality, 'whataboutism', usually entails pointing out hypocrisy and contradictory behaviour or beliefs. Not such a bad look.

    I said this in the fallout of the England game. How ****ing thick do you have to be to post racist comments under your own name on a public forum? The best case scenario is you get a few likes - the worst case, and outcome for most of them, is they sacked, tarnished as a racist and their life is pretty much ruined for the foreseeable. A well off estate agent in Manchester got outed on twitter after the game - he is completely ****ed now.

    Steven has completely ****ed up here, and doesn’t really deserve a reprieve. His comments are insanely racist - not even something that could be taken either way. Idiot.

    Just seen on Instagram he has posted and it reads as if he is going into some sort of rehab.

    What about Devin Haneys comments?

    Did you have the same reaction as you did to this?

    The email champ got away with it with zero punishment.

    Yes. Anyone who brings race and religion into sport is a ****. No time for it at all.

    I didn't agree with his comments, but there is a different between saying that and saying what Donnelly said. It's not just white people who can be racist, anyone can be racist.

    It's sad to see that a lot of boxers / people big in the game like trainers have ignored this. I sent a screenshot of Donnelly's tweet to quite a few fighters / trainers and they ignored it...if it were an MP or someone who had made these comments they would be the first to post it though

    Nah It's the same, they are both racists. Haney clearly must hate white people to be talking the way he talked. And Donnelly is clearly racist.

    Donnelly should and probably will be blacklisted from the sport. The way Haney got away with it without any punishment is really shocking. Whatever race a person is, they should be disciplined the same for racism.
