Soccer star criticised for posting blackface photo of himself


Another day, another case of blackface.

French soccer star Antoine Griezmann has been criticised for posting a photo of himself in full blackface online for an “’80s party” online on Sunday.

Dressed as what appears to be a Harlem Globetrotters basketball player, complete with an afro wig and darkened skin, 26-year-old Griezmann received a string of angry comments about the costume.

I’m already stressed out about Griezmann’s inevitable apology saying “a lot of my best friends are black.”
