Tommy Robinson aims at Anthony Joshua, song remix goes viral

Former EDL founder Tommy Robinson saw his rant on Anthony Joshua go viral on social media thanks to a cheeky remix.

A Twitter user decided to take Robinson’s attacks on Joshua and pop band Little Mix for their support of a movement and add the Parklife track by Blur.

The result? – Almost two million views on Twitter alone.

Robinson’s words came after Joshua was criticized for reading out a speech that some have since taken as calling for a ‘boycott on white-owned shops.’

Anthony Joshua speech

Part of the speech, taking place during a protest in Watford, read: “We must not use a demonstration for selfish motives and turn it into rioting and looting.

“We need to be united in the non-violent demonstrations, show them where it hurts.

“Abstain from spending your money in their shops, and spend in economies that invest in black businesses. And that’s for all communities if you want to uplift yourself. Invest in your own businesses.

“We have to engage with the youth and put an end to black youth gang culture.

“This postcode war, how many houses do we own on that postcode we’re fighting for?

“Every life matters. I one hundred percent agree with that.

“But that does include black lives, and that’s why we’re here today.”

Obviously not happy with AJ standing up for what he believes in, Robinson aired his views through his own social media channels.

They were then taken and spun to the track to widespread sharing.

Since attacking Joshua, boxing fans have called for a response from the heavyweight champion. Many even joked that Eddie Hearn should set up an exhibition match to end the argument.

AJ response

Joshua released a statement on those opposed to parts of his speech.

He said: “If you think I’m a racist, go f*** yourself!

“If you watch the full video, the speech was passed around for someone to read. I took the lead.

“I personally spoke from the heart about the Watford community. Ideas of us personally investing seven figures in creating unity and opportunities and adding change to the African/Caribbean community.

“Shops aren’t the issue here. Before you talk s***, you better boycott racism. “I said what I said, and I will act to make a change.”
