Zaha wrote: "This message isn't for me to get a million messages saying we stand with you and it's disgusting or about me getting sympathy. I don't mind abuse because nowadays it comes with doing the job I do even though it's not an excuse but my colour will always be the real problem, it's fine because I'll always be BLACK AND PROUD! Speak to me when you actually take this issue serious. I'm not here for all the nonsense that is being done instead of fixing the actual problem!"

As soon as the club was made aware of the issue the PA system was switched off, the incident investigated and swiftly concluded."
