A PLANE carrying a message “white lives matter Burnley” has flown over the Etihad during their clash with Manchester City.
The distasteful incident came just moments after all players took a knee in solidarity for the global Black Lives Matter movement.
Prem stars have also been wearing Black Lives Matters messages on the back of their shirts since the league’s restart.
The movement was initiated following the murder of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis policeman.
The idiotic message was greeted with fury after the image was shared across social media.
One simply commented: “Idiots.”
Another added: “What an absolute disgrace.”
Former Premier League striker Darren Bent added: “Strange considering Burnley have NO black players in there squad at all.”
