Lancashire Police are looking into an incident of vile abuse that was reportedly sent from an Asda employee.
Yesterday, a Twitter user shared a screenshot revealing a torrent of abusive messages that they had received from someone on Facebook. The messages included calling the individual a “dirty Jew” that needed “gassing”, as well as a “Jewish c*nt”.
Accompanying the screenshot, the Twitter user wrote: “@AsdaServiceTeam @asda This disgusting, hate-filled antisemite states, on Facebook, that they work for you… @LancsPolice Please investigate this individual.”
Three hours later, Lancashire Police responded on Twitter, writing: “Hi there, thank you for raising your concern about this. We were made aware of this incident earlier today and can assure you that we are dealing with it appropriately. Thanks.”
Campaign Against Antisemitism continues its robust engagement with social media companies over the content that they enable to be published, and we continue to make representations to the Government in this connection.
