British-Jewish Lord’s Antisemitic Twitter Troll Ordered to Pay Compensation
A U.K. court ordered a teenager to pay compensation to British-Jewish businessman Lord Alan Sugar for directing an anti-Jewish Twitter comment at Sugar back in January, the local Jewish Chronicle reported on Friday.
The 17-year-old, whose name could not be revealed for legal reasons, called the television personality an “old Jewish c***”, The Algemeiner previously reported.
Chelmsford Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday ordered the boy to pay £100 in compensation ($109) and £85 ($93) in costs and instructed him to complete an eight month referral to a youth offender panel. The teen from Lancashire admitted posting the offensive tweet.
Lord Sugar reacted positively to the court ruling on Twitter:
One of my Twitter racial abusers was convicted yesterday at Chelmsford Magistrates Court.Very well done @EssexPoliceUK for tracking him down
