Mario Balotelli has lit the network with a purportedly antiracist comment that has caused the contrary effect. The forward of the Liverpool has had to remove a comment in his account of Instagram and has apologised by the misunderstanding

To Mario Balotelli sometimes costs him calculate the scope of his actions, and no only in the field. The international Italian had to withdraw a purportedly antiracist message that hanged in his account of Instagram after obtaining the contrary effect of what looked for. Balotelli Did his an image that had like protagonist to the famous character of video games SuperMario of Nintendo. "You are not racist" is the headed of the message, that continued: "Are as Mario, an Italian plumber, created by some Japanese, that speaks English and seems Mexican". At the end, however, it finishes with a "jumps like a black and takes coins like a Jewish".

In front of the avalanche of criticisms, the current player of the Liverpool did not take in withdrawing the message, although in a principle tried to defend: "My mother is Jewish, so it already can callarse all, please". Later, it had to publish a note of apology: "The intention of the message was antiracialism with humour. Now I understand that out of context it can create the contrary effect. The did another and seemed me funny and at all offensive because it was the SuperMario, but apologise to all the world that have been able to senitr offended", commented.

The new skid of Balotelli can have consequences for him, since the English Federation (FA) is investigating the incident and could sanction it by some parties by this fact. The fast arrepentimiento of the player of the Liverpool, however, can be an extenuating.
