Jessica Ennis has said here that she will have her name removed from the Sheffield United stand named after her if they sign the rapist Ched Evans.

How long until she gets rape and death threats I wonder?

Yes she already has

Yeah just saw it on the other thread sad

Its fucking bullshit! Thank fuck I don't know anyone in real life who believes he should be allowed to play any more, let alone back there.

jessica you rock!

I am very proud you spoke out like this and I hope the people who send out the threats are prosecuted and punished.

well done Jess.

Yes, I love her even more for this.

She's received rape threats sad angry. It appears this is the standard tactic every time a woman sticks her head above the parapet and it must be stopped.

I really wish I had been shocked by the rape threats but it seems to be the standard response to a woman publicly expressing an opinion. Makes me so angry, plus the pathetic 'freedom of speech mate' defence (yes, this is exactly what people fought for - your right to tell women you hope they get raped). FFS

I'm sure she knew she would get rape and death threats, which makes her stand all the more admirable. Gary Lineker has supported her on Twitter. Has he had any rape threats?

Haha Empire....The auto correct actually made some sense in this case. Unfortunately.

DoctorTwo Fri 14-Nov-14 21:09:48

"a chap defence" Hahahahahahahahahahaha etc. One of the best autocorrects ever.

I've been royally handed my arse in AIBU. I agree with them, I shouldn't have called for death. sad

Jess Ennis, you are inspirational. I'm very proud of her.

Cowardly scum hiding behind their keyboards.
