A RACIST yob who shared a video spouting abuse at England players after their Euro 2020 loss has been unmasked as a dad-of-two after he was barred from his local.
Plasterer Brad Pretty, 49, joined in with the sickening abuse directed at Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford, and Jadon Sancho after their penalty misses on Sunday.
The tradesman had previously covered his home in Kent in England flags – which neighbours say have now been removed.
He was arrested in relation to a malicious communications offence in wake of the sickening social media spiel being shared.
In a Facebook post Pretty, who had an England flag painted on his face ranted: "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.
"Three lions on a shirt, right. How many times have we seen England players, w*** take penalties for us and f*** it up.
"Three f***ing lions, three f***ing c***s f***ed it for us."
He ends the video by screaming into the camera before switching it off.
BANNED FROM LOCAL BOOZER
The disgraced dad had enjoyed a "party atmosphere" at his home during England's Euro games before he shared the appalling video.
The 49-year-old has spectacularly been banned from his favourite pub in wake of the scandal.
He will be refused entry if he heads to his local where he drinks almost every week, after they said they "won't stand" for the disgusting comments.
The live-in manager exclusively 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.
"Usually he comes here alone about twice a week to meet a few friends. But we haven't seen him for more than a week.
"We know he's actually got nieces who are not white so just can't understand why he would say something like that.
"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."
He'll never work again. I don't know where he'd go or where he'd get any support.
The footage has attracted thousands of comments slamming his behaviour online.
The disgusting footage came to light as police forces up and down the country arrested people in relation to racist abuse.
A Facebook friend of Pretty's said: "I don't know him too well and only say hello in passing. He's a bit of a lad and everyone knows it but I didn't know he was like that. I don't think he's very liked in Folkestone anymore.
"When I saw the video, I really cringed. It's that split second of stupidity. Press send and his whole life's finished.
"I can't believe how viral its gone so quickly with almost a million views. He'll never work again. I don't know where he'd go or where he'd get any support.
"Police should definitely be getting involved. It's sickening language which should never be repeated."
"PRETTY BY NAME BUT NOT BY NATURE"
A neighbour of the plasterer, who wanted to remain anonymous, added: "The video is absolutely foul. Even if you have those awful views, why would you post them online? As soon as social media picks it up, it's game over.
"I've spoken to him once before and he seemed pretty pally and high spirited. Just like a normal person really. It's a shock to see as he appears to be quite family orientated.
"You can be the hardest person in the world but if the world's against you, you're going to s*** yourself.
"There were England flags up in the windows on Tuesday but they seem to have been taken down now. You could hear them cheering and singing with the windows open during the Euros."
Another neighbour, who also did not want to be named, said: "He may be Pretty by name but not particularly by nature.
INNOCENT FAMILY RECEIVE ‘DEATH THREATS’ AFTER TROLLS MISTAKE IDENTITY
A FAMILY claims that their business has been “completely ruined” after trolls on social media mistook their company for Pretty’s plastering business.
Byron and Danielle Kilpatrick run BK Plastering and Rendering, in Bristol, and have had death threats since Pretty’s video went viral.
Byron, 37, and his wife have been left with thousands of abusive comments and reviews off the back of the vile rant which had nothing to do with them.
Danielle, 33, told The Sun: “It’s completely ruined our business within one whole day. Byron has been getting death threats all day. It's horrific.
"People have been leaving reviews calling us a racist company and all sorts, when it isn’t true and nothing to do with us.
"Loads of people were sharing his number and he was getting so many abusive calls it has been awful.
"It’s awful and disgusting what is in the video, but people should make sure that they are blaming who is responsible rather than someone completely unconnected.
"We’ve been trying to refuse the Google and Tripadvisor reviews because it will just ruin our entire livelihood, for something we didn’t do."
"The England flags in his windows have been taken down now, coincidentally after that video was posted.
"They were screaming and shouting throughout the whole of the Euros. There were expletives but they weren't particularly nasty or racist as far as I'm aware.
"It seemed like they had a bit of a party for the final and it must have turned sour afterwards.
"It's absolutely awful to see someone you live near saying such awful things. You can tell in the video it takes him a while to say it and he thinks about it. He knows it's bad yet still says it and it's bang out of order."
It comes as Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned online racists will be banned from footie matches after more than a million Brits demanded they be punished.
Putting the trolls on notice the PM warned: "You will not be going to the match. No ifs, no buts, no exceptions, no excuses."
Fans have rallied round three black England stars who were sent sick messages and monkey emojis on social media after their penalty misses.
A million people signed a petition in just two days demanding vile trolls be barred from games as punishment.
