An AC Milan Official Was Filmed Using a Racial Slur to Describe Mario Balotelli Recently

Late last week, during a press conference to help introduce him to the AC Milan club, Mario Balotelli talked about all of the things that he didn't enjoy during his time with Manchester City in England. From the press to the weather, there were a lot of things he hated when he was with Man City. But, it sounds like he's already got one thing to hate about AC Milan, and it's a big thing: The blatant racism.

Recently, AC Milan's vice president Paolo Berlusconi was speaking at a political rally in Italy when he made an incredibly racist remark while discussing Balotelli. During his speech, he referred to Balotelli as "n----- di famiglia," which means "the family's little n-----" in Italian.

"Okay, we are all off to see the family's little n-----," he said. "He's a crazy head. All the young ladies are invited as well—you can even have a chance to meet the president [Silvio Berlusconi]."

WTF?! A video of the speech was posted online by Italian newspaper La Repubblica shortly after the political event ended, and, not surprisingly, it went viral almost immediately. And now, both Perlusconi and AC Milan—a team that was the victim of racist chants recently—are under fire for it. We expect an apology to be released soon. But, if you're Balotelli, what an awful way for things to start off with your new team.
