Gary Lineker and Rachel Riley in new social media pledge to silence trolls | ITV News SUBSCRIBE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1eDKt0fHCjs : High profile celebrities – including ex-England striker Gary Lineker and Countdown presenter Rachel Riley – have pledged not to publicise the social media abuse they receive from vile online trolls.

Instead, the group of television stars, politicians and campaigners will be muting, blocking and reporting β€œabhorrent” and derogatory comments – with the worst handed to the police – in a bid to starve so-called trolls of the wider audience they reportedly crave.

The move wants to stamp out entirely those who are using social media to spread racist, sexist, xenophobic and other hateful messaging via retweets and public shaming by well-known figures on social media.
