Manchester United players Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard decided to spoke out, In support of an autistic boy, that was bullied in a viral video by two teenagers.
In the disturbing clip, while others are heard laughing off-camera, one boy slaps the victim and forces him to kiss his shoes and his female friend. The boy was racially abused too.
Rashford tweeted: “This is Kieran, a lovely young autistic boy. I have no words to explain for the other 2 in the video. The video is speaking for itself. Kieran, I got you my guy, always. I appreciate the love you always give me, and support. Keep your head high. Love, your friend, MR.”
Lingard has sent him a direct message saying: “Don’t let anyone affect you. Dream big.”
