    Is he dressed as a specific person/character or just a generic black basketball player? If it’s the first then it’s daft but not in any way racism or bigotry.

    At best he's just a fecking idiot. People will say the PC brigade are too much but in today's day and age, you gotta take the flak doing something like that.

    I don't think he's intending to be racist or anything and it's just sheer stupidity on his part. It's not going to go down well at all though.

    fecking hell what a dumbass how can he and his team be so dumb especially in this day and age. I don't think he is racist by the way, I'm just shocked that he didn't know better or wasn't advised how stupid this is. Non-football twitter will eat him alive now

    It's not even remotely racist, anyone who thinks it is or takes offence needs to get a life.

    Research blackface for why some would be offended.

    I'm not offended, but it's cringeworthy that someone would do that and think it's funny.

    I don't really find it offensive to be honest. It's not as if he's just coloured himself pitch black and gave himself giant lips (like blackface).

    I don't think they do, thats why they're genuinely asking why its deemed racist.

    White people mocked us heavily doing this type of thing. It's a REAL big issue, especially here in the states.
