Former England footballer Trevor Sinclair has drawn backlash on social media after saying “black and brown” people shouldn’t mourn the queen.

The former QPR, West Ham and Manchester City winger claimed racism has been “thrived” underneath Queen Elizabeth the secondwho died yesterday at the age of 96.

Millions around the world took to social media to offer their condolences afterwards Buckingham Palace released a statement said: “The Queen died peacefully in Balmoral this afternoon.

“That King and The Queen Consort remain in Balmoral tonight and will return to London tomorrow.”

Sinclair, however, told Twitter: “Racism was outlawed in England in the ’60s and allowed to thrive, so why should blacks and browns mourn.”

The TalkSport pundit immediately received backlash for his tweet, with former Crystal Palace owner and fellow TalkSport colleague Simon Jordan saying: “Trev, I’m really not sure that’s an appropriate thought, let alone a tweet.

“The country has lost a very significant person and respect and appreciation should be the prevailing feelings, not division.”

TalkSport condemned Sinclair’s tweet and confirmed they had reached out to the expert.

The radio station tweeted: “We attempted to contact Trevor Sinclair following opinions expressed on his Twitter account.

“talkSPORT does not endorse the views expressed and is investigating the matter.”
