Why did Sasha Attwood get death threats during the 2020 Euros?

During the Euro 2020 football competition, which Jack was competing in alongside his Three Lions teammates, Sasha was bombarded with hate on social media.

Opening up about the messages on her YouTube channel, she said: “I was receiving 200 death threats a day. I’m not exaggerating when I say that. I had so many messages every single day. I still get them now, all day every day.

“Things have obviously blown up over the Euros, but I never thought in a million years it would ever be this bad. It just kind of blows my mind how nasty people can be for no reason whatsoever.

“I’ve always been quite a strong person, I’ve always been very good at blocking out people’s opinions. But it’s on a whole other level. It’s just crazy. It’s the nasty messages about my appearance, people’s opinions. What are you all doing? It’s embarrassing.

“You hear people talking about trolling, but I never realised how bad it actually was. The scary thing is, it’s young girls. I’d go on these girls’ accounts who have sent me stuff and they’re 13 or 14. It’s so sad. I try to put it down to age but then I think when I was that age I never sent a message like that.

“I think it’s so toxic, social media, and it’s really sad these generations have grown up thinking that it’s OK to say things like that. Why are you doing it? Please ask yourself why.

“If you’re one of those people who goes out of your way to make a fake account or to send a horrible ­message, wishing someone was dead or talking about their appearance, or talking about their personal life, why, what are you getting out of it?”

“It was a real s*** time, it was actually horrible, and I was feeling so anxious . . . it was not nice at all. I didn’t ask for any of that, didn’t ask for anything to be put out there, but it’s out there, isn’t it, and I’m just going to continue to carry on as normal.”
