The Bianconeri have issued an apology for their social media post ‘that read as racially discriminatory content.’

The tweet was posted on Thursday and was not deleted until after 20 minutes. There have been thousands of negative replies.

, a women’s team defender, has a small red cone put on her head, which was like a hat.

The discriminatory part is that she is holding her eyes with her fingers to seem Chinese.

Juventus

apologized on their

Twitter

but they have released a new statement on Friday.

We would like to express our deepest apologies for the social post that read as racially discriminatory content on the Juventus Women’s Football Twitter account yesterday,”

the statement read.

“Juventus immediately realised that the Club had committed an unforgivable mistake, and this mistake has seriously hurt the feelings of all people who oppose racial discrimination.

“For such a mistake, the Club assumes full responsibility for the occurrence of the incident and its serious impact. Opposing racial discrimination and supporting the common development of multiple cultures are the principles that Juventus as a Club has always adhered to and continues to put into practice.

“Juventus acknowledges this mistake, and the Club will make the most profound reflection and thorough review to prevent similar things from happening again.”
