Aubameyang slams Social Media before U-turn on Twitter

Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang closed his Twitter account yesterday after complaining about the content, but the account is been reactivated.

The Gabon international is currently sidelined as he recovers from Malaria, having picked up the disease whilst away n international duty.

Aubameyang has spent some time away from social media whilst he has been recovering, but claims that he hasn’t missed it in his latest tweet, as reported by the DailyMail.

The 31 year-old followed up the above by deactivating his account, and it hasn’t been made clear when this was reactivated, but the Twitter account is active at this moment in time.

Aubameyang’s grievances were not made 100% clear, but he appears to have been mostly angry about the mass-uproar against the new European Super League, as opposed to the limited anger with racism issues, false Coronavirus propaganda and lack of effort to tackle bullying and online abuse.

The level of uproar against the ESL has been 10x that of anything we have seen around the racism seen in football, and possibly even more so than we witnessed around the death of George Floyd from people within the UK.

His outburst has been removed despite his account being reopened.

Do some of Aubameyang’s comments ring true? Should there be more uproar against other wrongs in the world as there was against the ESL?

    What ever you write you will always get brick bats and bouquets.
    I know I get both from my postings but it’s all good.
    Like football games you win some you lose some.
    I actually agree that the reaction to the Super league concept was so over the top and hypocritical to criticize a money making idea when the Premier League is based on accumulating vast wealth with little or no concern for the other 99% of the pyramid.
    But I don’t agree with Auba saying issues like racism have been down played. Compared to the horrendous 70’s today former taboo subjects like racism, sexism, homophobia, mental illness, domestic violence religious intolerance the environment and much more are being openly discussed and tackled.
    But hope our skipper continues to share and communicate his perspectives. It’s all good. Most of all get well soon Auba.
