Responding to the shock result, Balotelli Tweeted “Man utd…LOL” which provoked a rather sickening backlash from unimpressed social media users.
Twitter user Maroc spewed “You’re a ******* monkey. Oo Oo ah ah.” Whole another by the name of iMonko wrote “Monkey, monkey, monkey, monkey, monkey.”
An even more repulsive individual ended his own tirade with “Go eat some bananas and get ebola you dirty monkey.”
Soccer stars and fans the world over have reacted with furious outrage at the disgusting behavior, which has been reported to the police and brought to the attention of Twitter.
The force posted a message on Twitter, which read: “We can confirm officers are looking into offensive comments made on Twitter about Mario Balotelli earlier today,” Twitter confirmed.
No stranger to this kind of unacceptable controversy, Balotelli spoke with GQ Magazine earlier this year regarding prior incidents of outrageously racist behavior from so-called soccer fans.
“They aren’t used to seeing people who are different, not white, who act not as rebels but normally,” he said.
“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,”
“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.”
