Trevor Sinclair, a former star for Manchester City, is currently the subject of an investigation by talkSport following his remarks that "black and brown" people should not lament the Queen's passing.



The sports radio station where Sinclair works as a football pundit and commentator is looking into him.

The former City star allegedly tweeted shortly after the news of the Queen's passing that racism had "thrived" in the UK during her 70-year reign.

The Queen, who passed away on Thursday at the age of 96 at Balmoral, sent shockwaves through the sports world.

But Sinclair believed that people with dark skin didn't owe the monarch a final word of respect.

“Racism was outlawed in England in the 60’s & it’s been allowed to thrive, so why should black and brown mourn!!” He boldly tweeted, according to the Manchester Evening News.

And shortly after his tweet, Talksport announced that it was attempting to make contact with the former Premier League star to discuss the tweet.

It said: “talkSport does not support those views expressed and is investigating the matter.”

Sinclair’s comments further received a furious backlash from colleagues.

Former Crystal Palace owner, Simon Jordan, who also works with talkSport with Sinclair, said, “Trev, I’m really not sure that is an appropriate thought, let alone tweet. The country has lost a very significant person and respect and value should be the overriding sentiments, not division!”

At this point, Georgie Bingham, another colleague of Sinclair's at talkSport, said: “Bloody hell, Trev. What the hell are you thinking?”

And former Peterborough United striker, Aaron McLean, added: “To say I’m confused as to why you’ve felt the need to tweet this is an understatement.”
