A series of messages posted on the X account of Michelle Froome branded Muslims a "drain on modern society" and stated that "there are no innocent Gazans".

The messages, on the account of the wife of the four-time Tour de France winning rider Chris Froome, said that Muslims are "here to take over" and that she was "sick of sitting idly by quietly supporting Israel while the Hamas propaganda takes over social media". The statement "there are no innocent Gazans" came in the context of saying Hamas does not support diversity.
