The Mail sniped at how Marcus Rashford spends his own money and Twitter ruled it offside – 17 stunning takedowns
Marcus Rashford could live in a cardboard box next to a sewage plant and the Daily Mail would still call him out for having an unnecessarily flashy cardboard box. Raheem Sterling too. We may never discover what drives their editorial position.

Funny how "aspiration" isn't praise-worthy when it's young, black men who recognise their upward mobility also involved luck, support of their community and the welfare state. Marcus is exposing the futility of their "scrounger" narratives and so they have to come for him https://t.co/rG1G8aviYI

They were going to do one about Tory cabinet minister's property portfolios, but it wasn't in the public interest as we don't do any actual campaigning. https://t.co/QXn6X1kCfF

Working class man does well for himself and still cares about where he came from and uses his platform to fight for people less fortunate then he is. That's it, that's the story.

Dear Daily Mail, rather than running snide pieces on Marcus Rashford how about having a look at some of this? https://t.co/q6hgDx1pPr

Marcus Rashford is everything that is extraordinary about this country…
The Daily Mail is everything that is wrong with it. https://t.co/gYpy1nRApQ

By this stage my weariness is less with Daily Mail journalists attacking people for the temerity to be young black and successful, and more with intelligent people who deny that this is the case.

Marcus has earned every penny through his own efforts not through inheritance.

Finally, Marcus changed the subject.
Anyway, in nicer news, I’ve been working on a project for months now behind the scenes and I can’t wait to share it with you all next week. It’s something I’m really proud of and something I feel our children need. Best get back to work on it. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday! ♥️

We look forward to hearing more about that.
