Some people still don’t get it I see. Mario Balotelli is an Italian soccer star who just joined AC Milan from Manchester City on transfer last week.
AC Milan gave up a pretty penny to acquire Balotelli and showed him just how important he was by disrespecting him with racial slurs.
Milan vice president Paolo Berlusconi used a racist slur to describe the newly acquired forward during public remarks at a political forum in Italy.
Berlusconi, is the younger brother of the club president Silvio, and while speaking to reporters at a political meeting, described Balotelli, who is black, as “nigger di famiglia,” an Italian slur meaning “the family’s little nigger.”
ESPN is reporting that the statements have already caused outrage in Italy. This comes on the heels of AC Milan’s midfielder Kevin Prince-Boateng walking off the field after being racially abused during a friendly in early January.
Paolo Berlusconi was attending a rally for a candidate for his brother’s right-wing People of Freedom party when he made these comments.
“Okay, we are all off to see the family’s little n—–. He’s a crazy head. All the young ladies are invited as well — you can even have a chance to meet the president (Silvio Berlusconi).”
