Gerwyn Price defeated Kim Huybrechts in a sudden death leg to keep his title defence alive on Monday night. It was a great watch, but one of the more disappointing aspects of the match was the crowd calling Price ‘a sheep shagger’ was this harmless banter or a bit too much? Some twitter users felt it was racism at the highest level.
@SkySports pure racist disgusting chanting throughout the darts. “Sheep shagging Bastard” being chanted at Gerwyn Price. Absolutely hideous

Darts fans singing calling Gerwyn Price a sheep shagging bastard. Why isn't this considered racist? Because he's white? An Indian player having a curry song sang about them would be…… #darts #WorldDartsChampionship #PDCWorldChampionship

Sky Sports chose to turn down the chants anyways, I suppose you can’t have ‘sheep shagger’ being heard to the masses on TV..
