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.

Educate yourself, please, before you hold a big L.

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.

They really don't learn much in these 'academies' do they?

Why is this considered racist?

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).

How are people here so stupid, do you know the history of blackface and what it represents, stop acting like there is nothing wrong with this

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