Mario Balotelli September 2014

After Manchester United's shocking 5-3 loss to Leicester, Mario Balotelli mocked them with this tweet:


After the tweet, though, Balotelli received tons of racist abuse. One user, @CraigSainsbury, wrote, "Fuck you Mario you fucking nigger. Got eat some bananas and get ebola you dirty monkey."

Sainsbury is apparently a freelance journalist, according to his Twitter, but his account was soon deleted after many caught hold of his vulgar and disgusting tweet.

Unfortunately, he wasn't the only one to respond to Balotelli's tweet with hate, anger and racism:


Balotelli has dealt with tons of racism throughout his soccer career, and it's a shame that it continues. Luckily for him, he can deal with it and doesn't pay much mind to it.

Back in July, he said this to GQ Magazine:

"They aren't used to seeing people who are different, not white, who act not as rebels but normally. I think what the ignorant people don't like is that people who are different are allowed to act that way. These stupid people, they get angry with me, they say horrible things, but I haven't done anything different from other people. I have made mistakes, like everyone does, and I have always paid for my mistakes. I think that if I was white maybe some people would still find me irritating or annoying but it wouldn't be the same. Absolutely not. Jealousy is a horrible thing, but when this jealousy is towards people who are different from the majority, and who maybe also have more than you, then it becomes anger, it becomes rage, and that's the overt racism."
