Ricketts family release statement amid Chelsea fan backlash
The Ricketts family have released a statement in response to the strong backlash they have received from Chelsea fans after showing interest in buying the club.
As 101 has already covered, the Ricketts family are flying to London in a bid to convince Chelsea supporters they can lead the club to a bright future and are confident they are among the front runners to buy out Roman Abramovich.
However, Chelsea fans are not too happy about their potential ownership and would get ‘#NoToRicketts’ trending on Twitter on Tuesday.
As per football.london, ‘this comes after leaked emails via Splinter were re-posted from 2017 revealing Islamophobic remarks by Joe Ricketts.
The most shared of the quotes across Chelsea fans on social media referred to Islam as a “cult” and revealed the patriarch of the family commenting that “Muslims are naturally my (our) enemy due to their deep antagonism and bias against non-Muslims”.’
Ricketts family release statement
In response to the backlash, the Ricketts family have released a statement, which says: “Our family rejects any form of hate in the strongest possible terms.
“Racism and Islamophobia have no place whatsoever in our society. We have developed deep and abiding partnerships with the Muslim community in Chicago, as well as with all communities of colour.
“Respect for diversity and inclusion are central to our family’s values. If we prevail in our bid for Chelsea, we commit to the Club and to the fans that we will actively promote these values.”
The Ricketts family insist they are not racist or anti-muslim as they try to save their bid to buy Chelsea. Story #CFC https://t.co/R9tJQ8RjMA
