WILFRIED ZAHA received more disgusting racial abuse on social media before demanding Instagram do more to catch “stupid, racist cowards”.
Zaha took to his Instagram story to share yet more vile racist messages, one read: “a n***** bragging about getting a wee lad arrested that’s a bit sad innit.”
It comes just two days after a 12-year-old boy was arrested for racially abusing the Crystal Palace star on the same social media site.
Vile taunts were aimed at Zaha ahead of his side’s trip to Aston Villa.
One read: “You better not score tomorrow you black c***.”
Images of the American racist hate group the Ku Klux Klan were also sent to the 27-year-old.
Zaha reflected on the last few days before sharing yet more disturbing screenshots with followers.
He said: “This is why I don’t tend to talk even though I get stupid racist messages everyday of my life – this is why I don’t talk.
“But the other day, I thought you know what, I’m going to out this person – it happened to be a 12-year-old.
“How can you have such hatred at 12? And send off those things.
“It doesn’t make a difference to me how old he is.”
Zaha called for greater security protocols, such as providing your address, to link people to social media accounts.
He added: “Social platforms like Instagram, Twitter – to make a change for people not to be able to do this and be held accountable for the stuff they send.
“Everyone should put their proper details in…so I don’t get these messages.
“For all the kind, supportive stuff people have been saying, I want action. I want change.
“Unless people give their proper full details they should not be allowed to make an account because that is all cowards do.
“These stupid racist cowards…they hide behind accounts. We can put it everywhere, on the news, but it is going to carry on.
“Until these things are changed, then I don’t want to hear nothing man, I’m sorry.”
