The Bianconeri Women’s account posted a picture of Cecilia Salvai making a gesture that mocked the Asian people

Juventus apologized for posting a racist picture on Twitter.

The Juventus women’s team shared a picture of defender Cecilia Salvai wearing a cone as a hat and slanting her eyes with her fingers, following the harmful long-standing caricatures of people from Asia.

The only caption that accompanied the picture was a face between two hands to reproduce Salvai’s expression.

What was said

The tweet was condemned as racist and eventually deleted before the Bianconeri account posted an apology.

It said: “We sincerely apologize that our tweet, which shouldn’t be controversial or have a racist undertone, may have offended someone.
