A photo of Rashford reacting to his missed penalty kick went viral on social media.

The overwhelming racist abuse on social media generated headlines around the world. Celebrities and politicians in America condemned the racism.

Sean Combs shared a B&W photo of England's Black players on his Instagram account. He captioned the image:

"We stand with you Kings. Proud of all your efforts on and off the field and we will always support you. Continue to inspire. Love

And to the racists… F*CK YOU!"

Dozens of fans repaired a defaced mural of Marcus Rashford by taping cards, flowers and banners over it.

Thanks to a petition that garnered over 600,000 signatures, UK parliament is debating a new law that would make it mandatory to provide verified identification to create a social media account.

The petition states that the account of a person under 18 must be verified with the ID of a parent or guardian.

The new law makes it easier to trace young hoodlums who post racist or hateful comments on social media.

England had reached the Euro Cup 2020 final for the first time in history on Sunday. Fans took to the streets to celebrate the country's first-ever appearance in the final.

Carole Baskin ripped Atlanta stars Sean Combs (left) and Pierre "Pee" Thomas (right) for posing with a caged tiger at the Black Tie Affair for the Quality Control Records CEO on Wednesday night.

Baskin slammed Combs and several other celebs for posing with the caged tiger at Atlanta's Fox Theater.

Baskin is a big-cat rights activist and CEO of Big Cat Rescue, a non-profit animal sanctuary based near Tampa.

She is best known for her appearance in Netflix's documentary series Tiger King about Oklahoma-based private zoo operator Joe Exotic.

Even though she wasn't invited to the party, Baskin claims there are signs that the animal was stressed inside the cage. She says it was a horrible scene for the big cat, according to TMZ.

Invited guests included Combs, Ray J, T.I. & Tiny, Gucci Mane and his wife Keyshia Ka'oir, Lil Baby, Teyana Taylor, 2 Chainz, Bow Wow, Jermaine Dupri, City Girls, and more.

Baskin says the white tiger looked stressed by all the noise and chaos -- that's why it's pacing and mouth breathing -- both signs the cat was not comfortable in the small cage.

Baskin couldn't fathom why folks would want to "demonstrate dominion over the world's most magnificent animal" at the party. She says it was clear exploitation and a slap in the face to mother nature.

Carole said the whole scene made partygoers look "impotent, clueless and cruel" to animals.

Baskin also wonders if the tiger was brought in illegally, and she's urging local authorities to investigate the party.

The Georgia Dept. of Natural Resources would have to issue a permit for the tiger to be displayed.

TMZ reached out to the GDNR, and also to Quality Control Music for comment.
