On Friday at 1400 GMT (10 a.m. ET), a group of English soccer leagues, clubs and players – including the governing body and largest men’s and women’s leagues – began a four-day social media boycott in protest of online racism and abuse, which has run rampant over the years.
Ahead of the boycott, which ends Monday night at 7 p.m. ET, other English sports including cricket, rugby, tennis and horse racing announced they’d join the social media silence.
Add Ian Poulter to the list.
The three-time winner on the PGA Tour and 12-time European Tour winner is teeing it up this week at the Valspar Championship and took to Twitter to explain why he’s joining the movement.
