The Spectator go after Rashford

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-57912240
Rashford wrote on Tuesday: "Just heard Spectator are planning to run a story on me tomorrow about how I have benefitted commercially in the last 18 months.

"To clarify, I don't need to partner with brands. I partner because I want to progress the work I do off the pitch and most of any fee I would receive contributes to that.

"Last summer, 1.3M children had access to food support, through my relationship with Burberry children have a safe place to be after school where they will be fed, following the November investment vulnerable children have safe places to go this summer holiday, and due to my relationship with Macmillan 80,000 children now have a book to call their own.

"Do I have a larger commercial appeal following the U-turns? I'm sure. But I'm also a Manchester United and England international footballer. Why has there always got to be a motive? Why can't we just do the right thing?

"I actually enjoy reading bits from The Spectator now and again but this is just a non-starter."

Made Johnson seem like a chump and now Johnson is setting his media pals on Rashford, especially after the penalty miss, the timing is right there. If the racism incident didn't happen immediately afterwards, they'd have published this sooner.

Stick it to them rashford. Even if you’ve benefitted you’ve done a lot of good.

Imagine him saying “no sorry followers, I’ll have to delete some of you, so the dogs**t media don’t make a story”.

Definitely can’t win here.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
No, he can’t. He’s a class act rashford, fack what people say.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yep. Did more for kids than a government with the biggest majority since the fekin war.
Definitely hated by them.

And even if there was some financial benefit to him, I’ve seen nothing at all from him that suggests he was ever in it other than for the reasons he said he was doing it for. He just genuinely wants to improve children’s lives, not like he’s short of cash anyway.

Seriously.

Did anyone think these absolute kvnts weren't gonna do this?

It's in their genes.

They seem to have it in for Rashford

What did he do to get them so worked up?

The word “f***” was scrawled over the huge artwork and the words “s***” and “b******” were also written beside the word “Sancho”.

So it wasn't actually racist graffiti, offensive but not racist despite the MUEN's attempts to whip it it up.

The mural is about a mile from where I live, it's hidden on a side street and can't be seen from the nearest main road.

Loads of pubs nearby so it was more likely to be disgruntled drunks rather than hard line racists.

Or you get five a month if you give them your email address. I've done it out of curiosity. Even though I've ticked 'do not contact me' I'm interested to see if I start getting offers for wine clubs and royal family souvenir china plates in my inbox.

This is a long read. But basically the Spectator were desperate for ‘woke’ stories in some sort of attempt to ‘humiliate the left’

This lady sent them loads of ridiculous made up stories, including nonsense about Rashford and Roc nation. (She told them she worked there).

They believed every word of it and were going to release it in the article that Rashford alluded to.

Basically they got wummed

This would have been even better 30 yrs ago when the Spec had some

credibility. Their sub eds & those at the Daily Fail & Torygraph are given

mental clickbait targets. Underpaid & overworked they snap up

everything and copy & paste from Any Old Source. Even including

hilarious typos & 'Please Check This' instructions from other source Eds.
