Depends on country. It falls under hate crime here and you can face up to 5 years jail time. A lady was sentenced to 3 years a few years back.

Think about this.

We're fighting racial discrimination, where people could be killed just because of their skin colors, by sending a woman to prison for 3 years for calling a black person black?

You're right. Sorry guys, I'm in Vietnam and was hangover when I wrote that - so I did not remember properly.


Juan will know better and just leave the pitch if something like this happens in the future.
Seems you are hungover in Vietnam every week.

(Sorry mods, it's just banter)

We had one who destroyed a bench in rainbow colours, that dude got 40 days for committing a hate crime

🚨🚨 BREAKING Juan Jesus has released a statement:

I have read several times and with great disappointment the decision of the sports judge, who felt there was no evidence that I was the victim of a racist insult during the match between #Inter and Napoli on 17 March. While respecting the decision, it is one I find difficult to comprehend and it leaves me feeling very bitter.

Quite honestly I am crestfallen by such a serious incident in which my only mistake was that I dealt with it ‘as a gentleman’, deciding not to interrupt an important game, with all the inconvenience that would have caused the spectators watching the match. I did so believing that such an attitude would have been respected, and perhaps taken as an example.

Following this decision, I imagine that anyone else finding themselves in a similar situation to mine will act in a very different manner, in order to protect themselves and to curb the disgrace of racism, which, sadly, we are struggling to rid ourselves of.

I do not feel in any way protected by a decision which both admits that ‘there was certainly evidence of the insult’ and maintains there is no certainty that it was of a discriminatory nature, which only I perceived ‘in good faith’.
I really do not understand how ‘go away n*gro, you’re just a n*gro’ can be considered to be certainly offensive but not discriminatory.

I do not understand all the commotion that evening if it really was ‘just an insult’, for which Acerbi himself felt the need to apologise, the referee decided to notify VAR, the match was suspended for over a minute and his team-mates hurried to speak to me.

I cannot fathom why Acerbi only started to change his version of the events the following day while with the national team, instead of denying it immediately after the match, when it actually happened.

I didn’t expect it to end like this. I fear - and I hope I am wrong - that this could set a serious precedent for justifying certain behaviour after the event.

I sincerely hope that this (for me) sad matter can help the world of football to reflect on an issue that is both serious and urgent.” @FabrizioRomano

Acerbi did apologise to Juan - for the insult or for the racial slur? I guess we'll never know. Case closed.

Moggi said it was not Marotta solving this, it's simply just that the Italian NT needs Acerbi.

PS: Fuck Moggi

I knew this shit is gonna drag on. Very stupid of Acerbi to put himself and the club in such a situation.

Yeah, he apologized on the pitch. Then changes the story afterwards. It was case closed with JJ already. Why not own it up what you did? I know why. Because he could have been heavily banned, missing euros etc.

I really think, even if Acerbi said something inapropriate to JJ, that he did not think anything rasist. That was on the field, and there are said many bad things to other players. But that is where tension is hight and fight for every ball. I mean, we have black people in our squad, and looks they are all happy to be part of our team.

What i dont understand here is Jesus in an interview said: Ma sono cose dell campo..... and now he just wont let go...

I have to admit that it might be cause acerbi after apologizing on the pitch now says he never said anything racist....

Anyways situation is a bit fucked up and hope we can move on soon

It's because Jesus feels he looks like a liar making a fake claim about Acerbi, and now he feels embarrassed by the final decision.

Racist shit could have been said for all we know, but Acerbi’s initial apology isn’t necessarily a smoking gun.

He could well have been horrified that what he said was taken as racist and apologised for making JJ feel abused.

“I’m terribly sorry for what was said, it wasn’t intended to be racial” (threatening to beat him black and blue)

Or was it:

“I’m sorry for racially abusing you and dropping the N-bomb”

Simply saying Acerbi apologised isn’t saying much. I’m leaning more towards JJ’s story, but am also hesitant to condemn an individual with zero evidence.

Unfortunately for Inter, the Italia NT and Acerbi personally the stigma will always remain despite the judge's ruling. The court of public opinion has found him guilty it appears. His contract with Inter ends 30 June 2025.

Apparently, we are already looking at replacements. Alessandro Buongiorno from Torino has been mentioned but it is likely that the asking price will be too high. Tee other players that we are being linked to are Schurrs and Bijol.
