Big Andrew Fifita – of Tongan and Indigenous Australian heritage – has seeked out and slammed a social media troll who called him a ‘black c****’ during Cronulla’s gutsy win over Canberra where Fifita played the entire 80 minutes.
Fifita had just lost the ball over the try line when Twitter user @parra_alltheway posted: “Hahahaha get that into ya, you black c*** #NRLRaidersSharks’.
Fifita posted his reply late Monday night.
“We don’t need this in our game, learn and respect us as players please. We have family and friend [sic] who see this and really take offence. #racism #Why #sayittomyfaceplz”.
