Trevor Sinclair’s Twitter rant over The Queen leads to clash with Simon Jordan

Pundit Trevor Sinclair sparked an ugly row with his radio colleague after urging 'black and brown' people not to mourn the Queen's death following her passing at the age of 96.

The ranting talkSPORT regular claimed racism was 'allowed to thrive' during the 70-year reign within just minutes of the Royal Family's announcement.

The extraordinary tweet by the ex-England winger sparked an angry backlash – including from his radio colleague Simon Jordan who posted a reply on Twitter.

Sinclair, 49, wrote – alongside the hashtag #queen: "Racism was outlawed in England in the 60's & its been allowed to thrive so why should black & brown mourn!!"

But the explosive post garnered a furious response from followers on Twitter including former Crystal Palace owner Jordan, 54.

Simon Jordan hit back: "Trev. I'm really not sure that is an appropriate thought, let alone tweet.

"The country has lost a very significant person and respect and value should be the over riding sentiments not division!"

Sinclair had appeared to have sympathy for the Queen in 2020 when he tweeted that the Queen was 'genuine in humility' and 'still inspired'.

In 2018, Sinclair lost his job as a BBC pundit after he racially abused a police officer who had arrested him for drink-driving.

He was sentenced to 150 hours of community service for the public order offence and handed a 20-month driving ban.
