'FIFA' player's sexist online past comes back to haunt him

Written by  Kellen Beck

When you say stupid things on the internet, there's always a chance that it could come back to haunt you.

Two days after Dutch professional soccer club PSV Eindhoven signed FIFA esports player Tony Kok to compete under its name, PSV dropped him.

Never tweet.

PSV announced that it broke its contract with Kok Sunday, noting that Kok's management failed to share with them some of the sexist, lewd, and generally unsavory things that Kok has posted on Twitter in the past. PSV had only just announced Kok's signing on Friday.

The offending tweets, all of which have been scrubbed from Kok's account, were collected by the Dutch site SoccerNews. Putting them through Google Translate reveals some lewd and sexist remarks about women, a reference to drug use, unsavory descriptions of multiple things and people, and his support for a rival Dutch soccer club Ajax.

Kok has removed all the tweets from his account, tweeting today for the first time since being released, using the hashtag "NeverGiveUp" alongside a screenshot of his FIFA rank.
