Raheem Sterling Responds After Sun Outrage Over New Tattoo

Raheem Sterling Responds After Sun Outrage Over New Tattoo

The Sun's downright weird obsession with Raheem Sterling continued on Tuesday with the England and Man City footballer once again being featured on the newspaper's front page.

The 23-year-old was criticised for a new tattoo, one of a gun.

Sterling responded via Instagram, saying that the tattoo is a reference to his father's death and his commitment to never touch a gun. He added that the tattoo is unfinished.

When I was two 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.

With the World Cup looming, it's certainly a distraction which Sterling could do without and from a paper which will undoubtedly criticise the England team should they underperform at the tournament.

Previously, Sterling has been targeted by the paper - the Sun is not the only one either - for offences as such being tired and buying his mother a house.
