Prominent footballer and Black Lives Matter activist Benjamin Mendy has been charged with four counts of rape and one count of sexual assault.

The Manchester City star is accused of rape and sexual assault by three women, according to the BBC, including a minor. The alleged attacks took place between October 2020 and August 2021.

The BBC reports that Mendy "showed no emotion" following an appearance at Cheshire Magistrates Court in which he confirmed his name, address, and date of birth. He is set to appear at Chester Crown Court on September 10.

The French-born player was promptly suspended by Manchester City following revelations of the allegations. According to Sportrac, he is currently in the fifth year of a six year, £28,080,000 contract with the team.

In response to the news of the charges brought against Mendy, actor Laurence Fox took to Twitter. According to The Daily Mail, Fox wrote "Get kneeling, f*****s." The tweet was promptly flagged by Twitter and his account was briefly suspended.
