Twitter reacts as Marcus Rashford clashes against Tory MP over child food poverty
Hollinrake suggested that parents who need help to feed their children are failing in their parental responsibilities.
It did not siit well with Rashford who replied that the MP talk to affected families before coming to conclusions.
It was just last week that Rashford unveiled the “child food poverty taskforce”. This was formed in associationwith brands such as Aldi, Tesco, Deliveroo and Kellogg’s. (h/t Guardian)
This comes three months after he forced a government U-turn on summer holiday school meal vouchers.
Rashford has emerged as a hero for social justice atleast as far as child food poverty is concerned. His courage to call a spade a spade is an inspiration for those who fear their voices go unheard.
We would like to applaud the dignity and poise with which the United star deals with such issues, ensuring the conversation does not deviate from the topic.
Rashford’s reply was well recieved by a number of people on Twitter. We take a look at some of them below.

Wisdom….. It’s never a crime for Government to feed her citizens to survived as hunger can kill faster than Covid-19— PrahizGod (@I_am_SaintJohn) September 6, 2020
Keep the 🔥 burning Marcus
Well said Marcus!!— KAREN 🎗🏴 🇪🇺 ⭐⭐ (@KAZ1903) September 7, 2020
Your dignified response to such an dreadful comment shows the HUGE gulf between your humanity & the MP’s LACK of it!!
Keep up the good work on holding them to account.
Good on you, Marcus. You are practically doing an MP’s job. Keep up the good work. You are performing wonders. That MP’s comment is so ignorant and tells me he doesn’t really care people are suffering. You would be a better prime minister than Borris Johnson. You have done more.— Kofi Afriye Ofei (@Heavenlybliss) September 7, 2020
Rashford for PM. Rivalries aside I will support you whatever you do. What you’re doing for the UKs kids is amazing and you should be knighted. Keep fighting. Just not against Spurs please— JaiP (@JaiP72) September 6, 2020
You are a legend for speaking out like this. We absolutely need to start uplifting each other. Start to realise that what we achieve ourselves alone, dies with us but when our actions improve life for others it lives on.— Lucy Wood (@LuDoRight) September 6, 2020
My rashy will b the first player to b elected into the British parliament soon😀😀— AyO (@WHEEZZY2010) September 6, 2020
That’s it Marcus, these comments are made to try and make people feel ashamed and keep them quiet. Keep up the good work, there are so many families that desperately need the help.— Sarah ND (@sarahnolan77) September 6, 2020

Thx Marcus. Blaming parents is appalling. They don’t choose this; it’s agony for them. Shamefully, universal credit, food pricing etc. have created food poverty in UK despite our wealth. BBC made an excellent programme on it with top chefs back in Aug. 2013.— Gabriella Braun (@BraunGabriella) September 6, 2020
Thank you. Truly thank you. In tears of relief reading your tweets, the situation & attitudes must change.— Scribbler Griff 🎨 girly swot 🕷️ (@Maxmycat) September 7, 2020
So glad that you said this. Too many people have no voice and are ignored. Thank you on behalf of all parents.— Nicholas Dickens (@NicholasDickens) September 7, 2020
