Antoine Griezmann is a french soccer player who plays for Atlético Madrid in Spain. He is also one of the best attackers in the entire world. And today, he did something incredibly, monumentally stupid.
Griezmann tweeted out a photo of his costume for an '80s party. He went to the party as a Harlem Globetrotter. His costume featured black paint on his face. And on his arms. His legs. Pretty much all over the visible parts of his body.
Hard to believe people are defending someone dressing in blackface in 2017. If it doesn’t offend you maybe try to understand that it offends a lot of people. Very simple. Not a smart move by Griezmann.— Adam Joseph (@AdamJosephSport) December 17, 2017
The tweet has since been taken down, but not before those on Twitter had a chance to react it.
