Chelsea star Sam Kerr expertly shuts down social media troll on Facebook page

Chelsea's Sam Kerr has brilliant shut down a troll on Facebook who said she had 'no respect' for the Australian flag.

The Australian captain recently revealed that she is dating fellow footballers Kristie Mewis, who currently plays for Houston Dash and the US Women's side.

And, on Monday, Kerr posted to her Facebook page an announcement that she is taking on a role as a brand ambassador at the Commonwealth bank.

However, one Facebook user took exemption to the seemingly harmless post when he left a comment.

And Kerr quickly responded with a brilliant retort to the social media troll.

The individual wrote: "Can’t stand her [Kerr] as a human being as she has no respect for the Australian flag.

"She forced her teammates to hold a flag that is a privately owned flag instead of the true Australian flag."

They were responding to an incident earlier on in the summer at the Olympics when Kerr and her teammates held an aboriginal flag instead of an Australian one.

The flag was designed for the land rights movement in 1971 and has since become a symbol of the Aboriginal people.

However, Kerr responded: “Hi Jim, this decision was decided by the whole team, together.

"As you can’t stand me as a human being you can gladly unfollow me and stay clear of my page. You also know nothing about me as a human being but have a great day Jim."

The Matildas have a strong collective of players of aboriginal descent including Kyah Simon, Lydia Williams and Mary Fowler.

Kerr has previously said of the decision: “It was something that we spoke a lot about as a team. We let the Indigenous girls drive it.

“We felt that we didn’t want to just do something to go with the grain; we wanted to do something that was relevant to our country.

"Show unity within our group and let everyone feel that they’re represented. We feel really proud of it.”
