England footballer Daniel Sturridge is suing his former landlords for racial discrimination and harassment after he and his girlfriend found a child’s Netflix account labelled ‘n*****’.

The profile, which belonged to the O’Neill’s youngest son, who was 11, showed a caricature of a black person along with the racist term which Sturridge and his guests found offensive. 

The news, which was reported by The Times, was revealed in court documents filed at Manchester County Court.  

The n-word, although more commonly accepted when used within the black community, is considered extremely offensive and racist when used by white people.
