Jack Grealish's Girlfriend Sasha Attwood Sent 200 Death Threats A Day

Jack Grealish became the nation’s crush throughout the Euro 2020 football tournament – but his girlfriend, Sasha Attwood, was less warmly received.

The 25-year-old model, who met the Aston Villa pro at school in Solihull, has spoken out about the abuse she received throughout the tournament.

Explaining the extent of the trolling on her YouTube channel, Sasha explained: “I was receiving 200 death threats a day. I’m not exaggerating when I say that.

“I had so many messages every single day. I still get them now, all day every day.”

Sasha received the abuse on TikTok and Instagram, with vile trolls wishing her dead.

““They said, ‘I hope you get cancer and die’ or ‘I hope your whole family dies,’” Sasha said.

“They say, ‘I hope the next time you’re in the car you crash it and die, I hope after Wembley you die.’”

Sasha added that social media accounts should be held accountable when people receive abuse.

“Things have obviously blown up over the Euros, but I never thought in a million years it would ever be this bad,” she said.

“It just kind of blows my mind how nasty people can be for no reason whatsoever.

“I’ve always been quite a strong person, I’ve always been very good at blocking out people’s opinions. But it’s on a whole other level.”

And the abuse that Sasha has received is coming from girls as young as 13, and slammed social media as toxic.

“I’d go on these girls’ accounts who have sent me stuff and they’re 13 or 14. It’s so sad. I try to put it down to age but then I think when I was that age I never sent a message like that,” she said.

“I think it’s so toxic, social media, and it’s really sad these generations have grown up thinking that it’s OK to say things like that.

“Why are you doing it? Please ask yourself why.

“If you’re one of those people who goes out of your way to make a fake account or to send a horrible ­message, wishing someone was dead or talking about their appearance, or talking about their personal life, why, what are you getting out of it?

“I didn’t ask for any of that, didn’t ask for anything to be put out there, but it’s out there, isn’t it, and I’m just going to continue to carry on as normal.”
