During the Euro 2020 football competition, in which Jack was competing alongside his Three Lions teammates, Sasha was bombarded with hate on social media.
Opening up about the messages on her YouTube channel, she said: “I was getting 200 death threats a day. I’m not exaggerating when I say that. I had so many messages every day. I still get them now, all day every day.
“Obviously things have blown up with the euro, but I never thought in a million years it would be this bad. It blows my mind how nasty people can be for no reason.
“I’ve always been a pretty strong person, I’ve always been very good at blocking people’s opinions. But it’s on another level. It’s crazy. It’s the nasty messages about my appearance, people’s opinions. what are you all doing It’s embarrassing.
“I hear people talk about trolling, but I never realized how bad it really was. The scary thing is that it’s young girls. I would go to the accounts of these girls who have sent me stuff and they’re 13 or 14 .It’s so sad.I try to age it but then I think when I was that age I never sent a message like that.
“I think social media is so toxic, and it’s so sad that these generations have grown up thinking it’s okay to say things like that. Why do you do that? Please ask yourself why.
“If you’re one of those people who goes out of their way to create a fake account or send a horrible message, wishing someone dead or talking about their looks, or talking about their personal life, why, what are you getting “Out?”
“It was a shitty moment, really horrible and I was feeling really anxious . . . it wasn’t nice at all. I didn’t ask for any of this, I didn’t ask for anything to be put out there, but it’s out there, isn’t it , and I’m just going to carry on as normal.”
