The horrific images of the fight were streamed live and members of the audience could be heard shouting at Mrs. Wright to let the boy go.
“It’s a soccer game for kids,” the woman shouted.
‘Stop! Leave the referee alone. Oh my God.’
‘You should be ashamed. Absolutely disgraceful. “
Wright could be heard screaming, “buddy you’re clearly biased against the other team … you shouldn’t be a referee.”
