Raheem Sterling responds to The Sun front page about new gun tattoo

Raheem Sterling showed off a new tattoo on his right leg in England training today. Described as a “sick new tattoo” by The Sun, notorious for courting controversy, the tattoo depicts a rifle pointing downward to his foot.

However, despite some apparent outrage from anti-gun campaigners, Sterling, once again the victim of media bullying, has quickly taken to Instagram to explain the meaning behind his tattoo.

On his Instagram Story, Raheem wrote: “When I was 2 my father died from being gunned down to death. I made a promise to myself I would never touch a gun in my life time. I shoot with my right foot so it has a deeper meaning. N still unfinished.”

Once again, the media has gone after Sterling, the victim of several smear campaigns in recent years, forcing the 23-year-old City star to defend himself this time.
