Who is Harriet Robson?
Harriet has been modeling since she was in her early teens. Harriet Robson’s primary occupation as of right now is fashion modeling. According to several UK media outlets, she is a quickly rising fashionista with over 900,000 Instagram followers.
Harriet Robson is a 21-year-old model from Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom. Greenwood and Harriet have been in a relationship since 2019. When United lacked a striker in the 19–20 season, he had an impact on the team. They first connected while attending the same high school for their studies. Greenwood and Robson both enrolled at the Manchester Ashton on Mersey School.

What happened to Mason Greenwood’s career?
The matchday program for United’s FA Cup match against Middlesbrough on the Friday following his initial arrest did not include Greenwood’s name. Ralf Rangnick’s team was eliminated from the competition against the Championship club on penalties.
Nike, the company that makes uniforms, fired Greenwood at the start of February, and FIFA, eFootball, and PES no longer list him as a player. He was also removed from the most recent version of the Football Manager game.
The England international hasn’t competed for his nation since September 2020, when he and Phil Foden of Manchester City were expelled from Gareth Southgate’s team due to misconduct after breaking COVID-19 rules following a 1-0 victory over Iceland.
People’s reaction on Social media:
This isn’t about Mason greenwood and his football career This is about a young woman who risked everything to call out a professional footballer who has so much power and the court believes her I respect her so much
Sam Cane tweeted,
Reminder that there are people who abused Marcus Rashford for feeding children but showed full support to Mason Greenwood for attempted rape, controlling and coercive behavior, and physical assault. Throw them in prison with him.
Greenwood should never play for United regardless of if Harriet Robson pulls the charges. We saw the evidence. We heard what he said. It doesn’t all become fake because a victim struggles to leave an abusive relationship. He’s still evil
Andy Toon posted,
Mason Greenwood banged up until 21st November. Application for bail denied… still a trial to go but I hope his poor victim gets some solace from this and her bravery in speaking out is justified.
Mason Greenwood had a choice, Harriet Robson did not. I am not sad for Greenwood because he had a promising career, I am sad for Harriet because she will go through life with many psychological issues because of his actions. I hope she gets the help she needs.
