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 ********* di famiglia,” an Italian slur meaning “the family’s little ******.”
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).”
