Jack Grealish’s girlfriend says she got 200 death threats a day during Euro 2020
Jack Grealish’s girlfriend has revealed that she was receiving 200 death threats a day during Euro 2020.
Sasha Attwood, a 25-year-old model, has opened up on the vile abuse she was forced to deal with during the tournament.
Attwood said she was bombarded with messages on TikTok and Instagram, which included trolls wishing she gets cancer and that her family dies.
While the abuse peaked during England’s defeat on penalties to Italy in the Euro 2020 final on July 11, Attwood says she still receives them to this day.
"This whole thing since it's come out has just shown me that people are literally so mean,” she said on her YouTube channel.
"Genuinely, I was receiving, like, 200 death threats a day. I'm not even exaggerating when I say that.
"So many messages, every single day, and I still get them now, all day every day: 'I hope you die', 'I hope you get cancer and die', 'I hope your whole family die', 'I hope the next time when you're in the car you crash it and die', 'I hope after Wembley you die'."
Attwood, who met Grealish at school in Solihull, said she was surprised by the level of abuse she received.
She added: “It’s just crazy. It’s the nasty messages about my appearance, people’s opinions. What are you all doing? It’s embarrassing,” she said.
“You hear people talking about trolling, but I never realised how bad it actually was.
"I'd go on these girls' accounts who have sent me stuff and they're literally like 13, 14, and it's so sad.

"I try and put it down to age, but then I think I was never like that at that age. I never sent a message like that.
"I just think it's so toxic, social media, and it's really sad that these generations are growing up thinking that it's okay to say things like that."
The Sun reported that Instagram has launched an investigation into the abuse, while TikTok deleted the comments which had been flagged to them.
