Juventus FC Women's Team Apologize For Clearly Racist Tweet

The Juventus FC Women’s Twitter decided to send out a picture of a player wearing a cone on her head and making a wildly racist gesture on Thursday … and now, the team is apologizing.

The Italian club’s social media team kept the post live on their Twitter account for roughly 25 minutes before it got taken down … but it received more than 7,500 negative replies before it was deleted.

The team released a statement on the disgusting tweet shortly after … saying, “We sincerely apologise that our tweet, which was not meant to cause controversy or have any racial undertones, may have offended anyone.”

“Juventus has always been against racism and discrimination. #DifferencesMakeTheDifference.”

No word on why the team — which was founded in 2017 — decided to post a super racist pic out of the blue on a random Thursday … but the screenshots will certainly last forever.

It’s not the first time the club has been at the center of controversy — back in 2019, men’s player Moise Kean was on the receiving end of racist abuse from fans.

Kean — who was only 19 at the time — did not get support from his teammates or coaches, though … who claimed the chants were justified due to him provoking the crowd with his celebration during a game.
