Bradford City are investigating racist remarks made towards Charlton striker Lyle Taylor after Saturday’s match at The Valley.
The Addicks striker scored the only goal to earn his side a 1-0 victory in SE7.
Taylor linked to the comment – made on Twitter – and remarked: “Look at this… Yet another example of ignorant, small minded #racism #pathetic.”
The support from everybody has been overwhelming today. The blanket condemnation of 1 idiots actions has highlighted the people's true feelings on this matter. Thank you for all the messages too, it means the world. 👍🏻👊🏽💪🏿 #KickItOut
