Footballer targeted with 'threatening and racist abuse’

ONLINE ABUSE: Papiss Cisse

THE GIRLFRIEND of Newcastle United and Senegal forward Papiss Cisse has reported a website to the police after discovering that they were targeted in racist comments.

Users on the site described Cisse’s girlfriend Rachelle Graham as a “despicable race traitor xxxxx”.

Graham, 21, saw the comments after being told about the site by her mother.

Speaking about the abuse, Graham told Sky Tyne and Wear: “It is horrific. The website targets the pair of us because I am white and Papiss is black.

“Some of it is really threatening. I don’t understand why people would say these things, especially as Papiss is such a nice guy.

“I guess we just have to ignore it and move on.”
