In a now-deleted post, the former England international reportedly said: “Racism was outlawed in England in the 60s and it’s been allowed to thrive so why should black and brown mourn!”
Sinclair’s comment was quickly met with criticism on Twitter, with one person commenting: “It’s really not hard to just show respect… regardless of opinion, likes or dislikes.”

One individual has said they will no longer listen to the popular radio station if they don’t sack the former Manchester City player, penning: “If talkSPORT do not sack Trevor Sinclair then it’s #BoycottTalksport.”
Other users agreed for Sinclair to be taken off the air, as a third account commented: “Anybody following Trevor Sinclair please unfollow. He is a disgrace. talkSPORT have to get rid.”
“Unbelievable. Disgusting. Unfollowed,” remarked a fourth user.
Another person on Twitter said: “The queen has only just passed and Trevor Sinclair decides to tweet about racism and to be completely inappropriate…. Disgraceful Trevor!”
One of his fellow presenters, ex-Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan, has directly addressed Sinclair, as he tweeted: “Trev. I’m really not sure that is an appropriate thought, let alone tweet. The country has lost a very significant person and respect and value should be the overriding sentiments not division!”
talkSPORT has released the following statement on its Twitter page and it states: “We have been trying to make contact with Trevor Sinclair following opinions expressed on his Twitter account. talkSPORT does not support those views expressed and is investigating the matter.“
Sinclair has since deleted his Twitter account.
