Bundesliga club TSG Hoffenheim is participating in the fight against racism, hatred and intolerance on the Internet and will switch off its channels in social networks from April 30th to May 3rd.
With their boycott, the Kraichgauer participate in an initiative of the Premier League clubs. As in England, TSG’s campaign is aimed at the networks Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
“In the meantime, unfortunately, many parts of the social channels have become a dumping ground for frustration and hatred,” said TSG media director Christian Frommert: “It’s time to actively campaign for tolerance, respect and humanity.”
Most recently, the Hoffenheim professionals Ryan Sessegnon and Diadie Samassekou were racially insulted online.
