England star Jofra Archer suffers racist abuse again on Instagram as vile troll says his jewellery was ‘probably stolen’

JOFRA ARCHER has been subjected to more racist abuse on social media.

The England fast bowler was criticised by an idiot on Instagram over his jewellery and for playing in a watch that was “probably stolen.”

It appeared the person, calling himself Josh Bell under the tag @joshyb90, later deleted his account.

Archer posted a pic of the vile message he received to Instagram Stories, asking his followers to help by reporting the user.

The troll’s disgraceful DM read: “Take that jewelry off you f****** w***** you’re not Snoop Dogg!

“You’re playing cricket why the f*** are you wearing ‘a probably stolen’ watch?”

The troll later sent Archer an apology, saying: “Would like to send my full apologies with huge regret about some outrageous and ridiculous comments posted last night.

“Up late and drunk watching the cricket mad at the Aussies collapse.

“No excuses, disgraceful behaviour. Apologies once again.”

Archer commented: “If you are thinking that when you’re drunk you were always thinking it.”

Archer has received plenty of offensive comments on social media in recent months that England Test captain Joe Root described as “disgusting.”

He was racially abused by a spectator during England’s tour of New Zealand last winter and the man was later banned from attending international and domestic games for two years.

Archer also revealed he suffered racial abuse following his five-day ban for breaking cricket’s coronavirus protocols in July.

He told the Mail: “Some of the abuse I have taken over the past few days on Instagram has been racist and I have decided enough is enough.

“I will not allow anything to pass, so I have forwarded my complaints to the ECB and that will go through the correct process.”
