Tyrese Sinclair has been forced to clarify that Trevor Sinclair is not his dad following the ex-England winger's controversial tweet surrounding the Queen's tragic passing.
Her Royal Highness sadly passed away at Balmoral Castle on Thursday afternoon (September 8), putting an end to an incredible reign spanning 70 years on the throne. And as the tragic news spread across the nation, heartfelt tributes poured out to Britain's long-serving monarch, thanking Elizabeth II for her endless service to the country.
However, former West Ham and Manchester City footballer Trevor Sinclair, 49, outrageously used her tragic death to claim the Queen "allowed racism to thrive," a tweet that received mass criticism for its incredibly poor timing and ill-thought-out message. The tweet read (alongside the hashtag #queen): "Racism was outlawed in England in the 60's & its been allowed to thrive so why should black & brown mourn!!"

The post was in stark contrast to that posted by ex-Leicester City defender Frank Sinclair, famed for his 40-yard own goal against Middlesbrough, who tweeted: "One of the proudest days for my mum ever was me being honoured to meet the Queen at Buckingham Palace with England, Scotland and Jamaican national World Cup squads in 98.
"She took the time to ask me about my heritage and when my parents came to England. RIP Her Majesty."
HAVE YOUR SAY! Should Trevor Sinclair be sacked from talkSPORT? Let us know in the comments section.
Rochdale midfielder Tyrese Sinclair, 21, used his father's tweet to clear up any confusion as to who his real dad is, quote tweeting the original post and adding: "Just to make it clear to the people that have been trying to rinse me in DM’s. This is my DAD, not Trevor."
Trevor's bizarre comments are currently under investigation by talkSPORT with the radio broadcasting company distancing themselves from the views of their employee. "We have been trying to make contact with Trevor Sinclair following opinions expressed on his Twitter account," stated a tweet from their official account.
"talkSPORT does not support those views expressed and is investigating the matter."
Trevor has since deleted his Twitter account.
