Lord Sugar gets anti-semitic abuse on Twitter, calls the police

Twitter trolls targetted Lord Sugar with anti-semitic messages after the Apprentice star tweeted about the recent Tottenham Hotspur versus Crystal Palace Premier League game.

The Apprentice star was called an “’old Jewish c***” and a “fat ***”.

Lord Sugar tweeted the Met Police to get the tweets investigated and added he’ll follow up with “formal complaints”.  

A spokesman for Westminster police said: “Police at the palace of Westminster have today received an allegation of malicious communication, relating to offensive messages on Twitter.

“The messages are alleged to be of a racist and anti-Semitic nature and directed at a male victim. Inquiries continue.”

    Well, racism is revolting, but shouldn't Sir Alan grow a spine and get on with his life? I'm sure he's been called far worse.

  • As anonymous says, get a spine!

    Never thought being called Jewish was an insult (?). Some come on Alan be proud of who you are and just take offence at being called fat and a c**** .
    Although you might find it harder to object to those!
