Joachim Andersen Starts a Movement Against Cyber Abuse After Physical Incident

On Tuesday, Crystal Palace defender Joachim Andersen took to his Instagram stories sharing that he got hundreds of death threats pointed to him and his family after Liverpool’s Darwin Núñez was ejected for headbutting him in a Premier League game that took place Monday night. 

“Got maybe 300-400 of these messages last night,” the Dane posted, calling on the League and Instagram to act. 

Looking back at the whole game, we can see the teasing going on between the two players.

Some say it was well played by Andersen to get under Núñez’s skin and push him to do something that will get him ejected. 

Nez, who scored for the Reds in his league debut last week, got into an innocuous altercation with Joachim Andersen that seemed to be going nowhere until the Uruguayan forward appeared to turn his head in the direction of his opponent.

Nez was given a swift red card by referee Paul Tierney, but he had to be led off the field by his own teammates and will now serve a three-game suspension.

“A little provocation here and there and definitely the wrong reaction,” Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said after the game, adding that he would speak to Núñez on Tuesday.

The day after the incident, Andersen started sharing that he was getting death threats and media reports said that he had also spoken to the police. 

Many of the screenshots contained profanity, and some advocated for the Palace player’s death. Some messages posed a threat to both Andersen and his family.

As the British Press Association reported, a Premier League representative said the league had contacted Palace to offer assistance.

The British parliament was scheduled to examine new legislation in July that would have required tech companies to take more aggressive action to combat abuse and hate on their platforms. Still, the bill has been postponed until a new leader of the dominant Conservative party is chosen.

    Dance: Is it an Art or a Sport?

    Oftentimes we are taught to think of things in terms of their opposites: good versus bad, hot versus cold, dark versus light. It’s this mode of thinking that has led to many harmful stereotypes and disagreements. It is a limited way of thinking, and we should thus seek to move beyond its constraints. That is why when the matter of deciding whether dance is an art or a sport, my answer is less restricted. I think it is both.
