After a 3-2 victory over Southmpton, Edinson Cavani of Manchester United, who is a Uruguayan international, shared an Instagram story from a fan, using a racially offensive term and although the post has already been deleted the Football Association (FA) is expected to investigate the online post.

A red devil fan expressed his congratulations in Español to Edinson Cavani on Instagram after Man Utd win over Southmpton at 3-2, and then he replied ”gracias negrito!”. It caused a controversy for the reason that “ negrito “ in English is a racially offensive term.
Cavani and Manchester United released a statement on their website after that, apologising for the post.

“The message I posted after the match on Sunday was intended as an affectionate greeting to a friend, thanking him for his congratulations after the game. The last thing I wanted to do was cause offence to anyone. I am completely opposed to racism and deleted the message as soon as it was explained that it can be interpreted differently. I would like to sincerely apologise for this,” said Cavani.

Manchester United also added, “It is clear to us that there was absolutely no malicious intent behind Edinson’s message and he deleted it as soon as he was informed that it could be misconstrued. Edinson has issued an apology for any unintentional offence caused. Manchester United and all of our players are fully committed to the fight against racism.”

The FA issued guidelines ahead of this season clamping down on racist and discriminatory language and behaviour, with offences on social media carrying a minimum three-game ban.

Once Edinson Cavani receive the ban he would miss matches against West Ham, Sheffield United and crucially the Manchester derby against Pep Guardiola's City.

Speaking on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football, Gary Neville believes players should be subject to regular diversity inclusion training to avoid such incidents.

“If we are truly going to root out discrimination in this country it has to become part of the curriculum at school, part of the curriculum within sport and every employer in the country has to enter into a diversity inclusion training programme and implement it and execute it. In football we have banners, players taking the knee, flags and badges but where is the education and training? This situation could have been prevented and we will continue to see incidents like this until the Premier League, FA, EFL, LMA and PFA all take responsibility.” He said.

I believe this is a justified measure to combat racism in any form.
Yes. I do agree with you. It causes controdictory, and it also gives others warning that everybody especially football players should be more careful about their words in formal occassions to avoid offense.

Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
18 family members tested positive for COVID after a holiday party in Pennsylvania, including a one year old baby. YES of course they were white. The mother knew she had "something", but during a world pandemic she didn't think it was COVID. This is insane! They just keep spreading it!
Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
