A primary school in England that was forced to shut its Twitter account after woke complaints surrounding their students supporting the England national football team has reinstated its account.
Flakefleet Primary School in Fleetwood was subjected to a series of criticisms from the woke brigade after they recorded a music video for the classic England song ‘Vindaloo’ to cheer on the England football team during the ongoing Euros 2020 tournament.
The video shows the children from the primary school running through the school corridors, waving England flags. Some of the children wore face paint with the cross of St George. The teachers at the school also took part in the festivities.
At first, the school took down the video following a backlash from those who saw the footage as teaching the children at the school hooliganism.
The school then shut down its Twitter account because of the backlash.
One Twitter user wrote:
“The school has pulled down its Twitter account. I’ve left a complaint on its website. It’s disgusting behaviour these children are being pressed to participate in by the school. I have a 7-year-old child. I absolutely do not want her to be exposed to this mindless hooliganism.”
However, the school has now, in a U-turn, reinstated its Twitter account, including the original England-supporting football song.
The school wrote on its Twitter account:
“We’ve been a bit freaked out by all the extra interest in our football video, the support is overwhelming! We all had such fun making it & are glad we’re making so many people smile! Thank you everyone for helping us show our support of the amazing England Team! #ItsComingHome”
