Veloce joins sport-wide social media blackout
Veloce Esports and Veloce Racing joined together at the weekend to participate in the sport-wide social media blackout. Initiated by the Premier League, we followed as sporting bodies across the country made a stand against online discrimination.
There is no place in sport, nor our society, for racism, homophobia, sexism or any form of discriminatory abuse. As a community, we must make social media a safer place for all, where discrimination and hate speech is not acceptable or where it goes unpunished.
What you can do:
You can block users and report incidents to any social media platform.
We advise that if you (or someone you know) have received any discriminatory and/or hateful, abusive comments online that you report this to the relevant social media platform. Below are a list of links to get you to the right area:
