Ronaldo confirmed as ‘most abused player on Twitter’ by new study

    A new study by UK communications regulator Ofcom has revealed Cristiano Ronaldo is the most abused player on Twitter.

    The Manchester United star has a significant presence in social media, with a huge fan base following his accounts on Instagram, Twitter, etc. However, this has come with the price of receiving millions of abusive messages on these platforms. 

    Having analysed over two million tweets during the first five months of the 2021-22 season, Ofcom has found half of the abusive content is directed at only 12 players.

    “These findings shed light on a dark side to the beautiful game,” Ofcom director for broadcasting and online content Kevin Bakhurst said.

    “Online abuse has no place in sport, nor in wider society, and tackling it requires a team effort.”

    Which Premier League Players received the most abusive tweets?

    From the 12 players on Ofcom’s list, eight were playing for Man Utd last season. 

    The researchers have defined an abusive tweet as a message that “threatens, insults, derogates, dehumanises, mocks or belittles a player” and also includes “slurs, negative stereotypes, excessive use of profanities and angry emoji”.
