A plasterer who filmed himself spewing racist bile at England’s black players has been barred from his local pub, it has been revealed.

Brad Pretty, 49, posted a video on his Facebook page in which he abused Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho after the Three Lion’s Euro 2020 final defeat.

The players became the subject of racist and hateful comments after they missed their penalty shots against Italy at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

Staring at the camera with a St George’s flag painted on his face, Pretty said: ‘Where do I start, where do I start. Sick, gutted like all of us.

‘Proper deflated. Gotta be proud of the boys, be proud, but anyone and everyone that knows me well will understand what I’m talking about.’

He is then shown using a string of racist terms about Saka, Rashford and Sancho and said ‘they f****d it for us’.

The video, which went viral and caused a social media storm, ends with the dad-of-two screaming at the camera.

Now, it has emerged that Pretty, from Folkestone, Kent, has been banned from his local pub.

The live-in manager told the Sun: ’I was shocked when I saw the video of Brad. He is usually okay and seems like a nice normal guy.

‘We weren’t impressed at all. He’s obviously drunk and ruined his whole life with a one minute video.

‘If he was to come back here, we would actually say to him to stay away for a little while because we do not stand for that at all.’

Pretty boasts about being a ‘die hard’ England fan and Liverpool supporter, but a friend of his told MailOnline: ‘He’s never been to a game in his life.

‘If you showed him a photograph of Anfield, he wouldn’t know what it was. And the same goes for England. He’s never been to see them at Wembley, never mind abroad.’

Locals also revealed that he brags about not wearing a mask and refusing to have the Covid vaccine, claiming that the virus is a conspiracy.

One said: ‘Pretty rants a lot against what he calls the politically correct brigade and says that they are trying to control us. He sees Covid as part of that.’

Pretty’s company, BK Plastering, has since been inundated with negative reviews online after sharing his rant on his now deleted Facebook page.
