ANGRY customers are calling for a boycott of a Barrhead takeaway after a string of sectarian comments were published on the owner’s Facebook page.

There has been outcry over the remarks on the social media account of Capital Chinese carry out boss Robert Wong, which appeared after an Old Firm derby between Celtic and Rangers earlier this month.

One post described the match referee Bobby Madden as “a dirty tattie munching c**t” – mixing expletives with a derogatory term used to refer to Irish people and, in some cases, Celtic fans.

The series of rants also took aim at Celtic captain Scott Brown.

One spiteful message said: “F*** it, let’s just go and try to end Brown’s career and break his f****** legs or face.”

Mr Wong’s account then shared a post which ended with the hashtag “#we’reuptoourknees” - in reference to a lyric in the controversial ‘Billy Boys’ song which is seen to glorify the killing of Catholics.

Other social media users have been quick to condemn the controversial posts, with many vowing to boycott Mr Wong’s business.

One man, who asked not to be named, contacted the Barrhead News to express his disgust at the “totally unacceptable” comments.

He said: “I for one won’t be bringing my business anywhere near his establishment.”

Frances Mcgoldrick also vowed to boycott the Capital takeaway.

She wrote: “Don’t care what you believe and support but, as a businessman, (he) should keep his mouth shut.”

Jacqueline Clark added: “This is disgusting.”

The comments have also been slammed by anti-bigotry charity Nil by Mouth.

Dave Scott, the charity’s campaign director, said: “Sadly, we are seeing more and more people use social media sites to direct abusive, sectarian and threatening abuse at others.

“This is often because they see the internet as a place where they can engage in such behaviour without consequences. However, this isn’t the case.

“An individual’s online behaviour can have a direct impact on their reputation, employment situation and can often lead to a criminal record.

“There can be very real consequences for this type of behaviour and this individual has left themselves open to all of them as a result of their actions.”

Mr Wong declined to comment when approached by the News.
