Aston Merrygold asks fans to help track down an online troll – after his son was subjected to racial abuse

The father-of-two is not happy


Aston Merrygold has revealed that his two-year-old son Grayson was subjected to racial abuse by an online troll.

The JLS star shared his fury, after he received a vile comment on his son’s official Instagram account – which the father-of-two runs with his fiancée Sarah Louise Richards.

The 32-year-old begged his followers to help him track down the person behind the account by sharing a screenshot of their username.

“I need to know who this person is ASAP,” he wrote.

“When you think you can move like this and write s*** on my sons page.. you got the wrong one mate,” he added, before asking for information on the account.

Aston’s JLS bandmate Oritise shared his support, commenting: “Just reported this disgustingness.”

X Factor winner Alexandra Burke added: “Reported. This just makes me so angry.”

“Welcome to the world baby boy. Macaulay Shay Merrygold 12:52pm 5/6/2020,” he captioned the post.

He added in a separate post: “I thought life was complete on January 30th 2018.. but June 5th 2020 3 just became a perfect 4! ????????.”
