Raheem Sterling explains his new ink job
England forward Raheem Sterling has defended his new tattoo of an M16 assault rifle on his leg after it was branded "disgusting".
Numerous PC crybabies and activists are against the 23-year-old's tattoo, but Sterling didn't do it because he supports guns and violence.
Quite the opposite, the England forward get the ink job as an homage to his father, who have died from gunshot, when Sterling was a little boy.
Raheem Sterling explained his motif in Instagram post: When I was two my father died from being gunned down to death. I made a promise to myself I would never touch a gun in my life time, I shoot with my right foot so it has a deeper meaning.
The UK's press is always aware of what Sterling is doing, constantly publishing tabloidesque front page stories about Sterling.
Some say that it is because he is black and successful and that mainstream media cannot cope with that fact.
