West Ham fans even made dog meat remarks and made racial discrimination against Son Heung-min. 

Tottenham won 2-0 in the home game against West Ham in the 24th round of the Premier League in the 2022/23 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 20th (Korean time).

Son Heung-min, who started the game on the bench after being excluded from the selection, appeared on the field in the 23rd minute of the second half, replacing Hischarlisson.

He helped Tottenham win by cutting West Ham’s net with a sharp finish four minutes after being put in. 

Son Heung-min played an active role in scoring even in a short time in the game, but he couldn’t help but laugh. Because of the serious racist behavior of West Ham fans. 

The Tottenham club said on its official channel after the game that day, “We learned that there was online racism towards Son Heung-min슬롯사이트 in today’s game. We stand with Son Heung-min. We urge social media companies and authorities to implement measures against this. I ask for it,” he said, saying that there was an act of racial discrimination and that he would take strong action against it. 

According to SNS posts posted by fans, some West Ham fans repeatedly posted the phrase “Eat dog meat” on their social media during the match and proceeded with racial discrimination against Son Heung-min.

In 2018, a fan who was racially discriminatory was sentenced to a fine by the court.
