Albion have called on social media platforms to clamp down and take action against online hate.

That is after football and other sports united to take part in a social media boycott to help take a stand against racism, which started on Friday afternoon and ended at 11:59pm.

The message from the Seagulls also comes a day after a teenager was charged after sending death threats to striker Neal Maupay and his family last year.

Albion took to Twitter this morning to post a picture of a statement: "English football, sporting organisations and people across the world united over the weekend to boycott social media, challenging platforms to do more to stop online discriminatory abuse.

"We now call on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to use their power to affect change and ensure there are real-life sanctions for online hate.

"We invite these social media companies to respond to our requests for action."
