UK Student jailed for offensive tweet

Fabrice Muamba Liam Stacey

A Swansea University student has been jailed for 56 days following a racist tweet he sent about Bolton Wanderers footballer Fabrice Muamba.

 

Liam Stacey, 21, was arrested for sending an offensive and racist tweet following the collapse of Muamba on the pitch.

 

Stacey cried throughout the hearing and held his head in his hands when he was sentenced, reports The Guardian.

Other Twitter users reported Stacey to the police but had earlier tried to delete his account and claimed his account had been hacked.

 

After his first court appearance, Stacey was released on bail on condition that he stayed off Twitter and other social networking sites.

 

Stacey’s lawyer claims the accused was drunk when he sent the tweet and engaged in an online altercation with other Twitter users who expressed their dissatisfaction with Stacey’s abusive tweets.

 

Swansea University, where Stacey is a biology undergraduate, said that he had been suspended and a disciplinary hearing would be held.
