Sheffield United's decision to ban Ched Evans from training "sends a message" about kind of behaviour is acceptable in 21st century Britain, the head of a feminist campaign group said.
Object chief executive Roz Gardie told Good Morning Britain said rehabilitation was "obviously" important but the striker had shown no remorse over his actions.
Wigan Athletic owner Dave Whelan has been accused of antisemitism after he was quoted as saying, "Jewish people chase money more than everybody else".
Asked about the decision to appoint Malky Mackay as Wigan manager despite a string of allegedly racist, sexist, and antisemitic messages sent by Mackay during his time at Cardiff, Whelan told the Guardian he saw "nothing offensive" in those messages.
“I think Jewish people do chase money more than everybody else. I don’t think that’s offensive at all,” he added.
Former FA and Premier League executive Simon Johnson wrote on Twitter:
Former Sheffield United patron Charlie Webster, who left her position at the club over the Ched Evans matter, said on Twitter it had "done the right thing" by deciding not to let the footballer train at its facilities.
Sheffield United have done the right thing by not letting Ched Evans train with them. It's the right thing for the club, its fans ... 1/2
2/2... Its community and the victim. @sufc_tweets is a great club with a fantastic history and now its future can be fantastic too.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, who is MP for Sheffield Hallam, also tweeted his support for the club saying it was "a sensible decision."
A sensible decision by Sheffield United regarding Ched Evans. Step in the right direction.
Singer Dave Berry, who resigned as a patron at Sheffield United following the Ched Evans row, has welcomed a decision to withdraw an offer for the footballer to train at the club but says it should not have taken so long.
Mr Berry told ITV news: "I'm very pleased to hear it but why has it taken so long? And still, where are all the men in this? I haven't seen anyone commenting from football clubs."
He added: "I'm rather disappointed at men not supporting this girl and making any gestures. They've said nothing about the contract - we're still only halfway there."
Sheffield United has retracted its offer to let convicted rapist Ched Evans train at the club.
The football club said the reaction to its initial decision to allow Evans to train there "has been at an intensity that could not have been anticipated when first announced."
"Sheffield United will not be used to promote the view that professional footballers should be treated differently, as has been the want of certain sections of the media and various commentators," the club said in a statement.
"During this whole period, we have been served a timely reminder of what we have been throughout our history: Sheffield United is a family and community club that, even in times of adversity, will remain strong and grow from its experiences."

Wigan shirt sponsor Premier Range will withdraw from their deal with the club following the appointment of Malky Mackay.
Mackay is currently being investigated by the Football Association for sending offensive texts, causing Wigan to be heavily criticised for hiring him.
Premier Range told the BBC: "Unfortunately, their recent appointment of Malky Mackay has put us in a position that we find untenable.
"Mr Mackay is currently under investigation by the FA for sending text messages that are at odds with the general ethos here at Premier Range - and, it would seem, Cardiff and QPR feel the same as us.
"The texts Mr Mackay has admitted to sending are wholly unacceptable - and the thoughts expressed within them are a shocking reminder of a past we thought football had left behind.
"A team that would employ a man who expresses views such these is not the kind of team Premier Range wish to deal with."

A Fifa executive committee member was reported to the world governing body's ethics committee after asking for "hard cash" in return for votes during bidding for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup - but no action was taken, it has been claimed.
Les Murray, an Australian who was on the Fifa ethics committee at the time, claims he reported the request to his superiors after being informed of it by people working for the Australia 2022 bid.
It is thought the member in question asked for $5million in order to build a sports centre in exchange for his vote.
Murray wrote on his SBS blog: "Three years ago, when I was still on the FIFA ethics committee, I was informed by sources inside the Australian bid team that a member of the FIFA executive committee was asking the Australians for hard cash in return for votes.
"I reported this information up the chain of the ethics committee at the time, as was my duty, but I see no mention of it in Eckert's report."
