“Respect and human interaction are very important to us!”
Bielefeld’s soccer players defend themselves against bad insults on the net!
The club publishes a clear statement on Instagram: “We say NO to bullying and hate speech online !!!!”
A Facebook comment by a user was published for this purpose. In this, the soccer players were insulted as “dishonorable filthy whores” – and also written: “Hang yourselves”.
The Arminia statement also states: “It is stunned what happens every day in this world these days! We want to make it very clear that we absolutely will not tolerate such a thing and will take further steps as soon as it goes like this. “
After a 14-day corona quarantine – and the already established relegation from the 2nd women’s Bundesliga to the Regionalliga West – the Bielefeld women lost the catch-up game against VfL Wolfsburg II 3-0 on Wednesday.
There is a lot of encouragement and support in the comments below the post!
Among other things from clubs like BV Borussia Bocholt: “No one, no club deserves such news / statements. We stand by your side against agitation and bullying, because we know what such messages / statements could do to sensitive people. ”Or also from the 2. Frauen-Bundesliga:“ We can’t find any words, but we think it’s good that you publish it ! “
