Disgrace! Berlusconi’s brother calls Mario Balotelli a ‘little nigger’ at a rally

article 2274092 175EE297000005DC 301 308x185 Disgrace! Berlusconis brother calls Mario Balotelli a little nigger at a rallyIn the past few days Mario Balotelli as been only too pleased to publicly discuss the problems he encountered during his time in England at Manchester City.

First off their was Super Mario’s public diss of The Sun newspaper where, at his unveiling at the San Siro, Balotelli flat-out refused to answer a question from the red-top’s Anthony Kastrinakis by saying “I don’t wanna talk with your newspaper, sorry.”

Then, also at his debut Milan presser, Balotelli went on to complain more generally about life in England, and his distaste for the weather and the food Blighty has to offer.

But life in Italy is far from a bed of roses.

On Tuesday a shocking scene played out at a political rally, as the younger brother of former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, Paulo Berlusconi, was been filmed making racist remarks about new AC Milan striker Balotelli at an electoral campaign meeting.

Speaking at an event for the People of Freedom party in Lombardy, Paulo Berlusconi told an audience:

That’s all. Now let’s go and watch the household’s little nigger, the crazy head [Mario Balotelli]. Girls are also invited if they want to come with me. You’ll also have the chance to meet with the president [Silvio Berlusconi].

The comments were appalling and offensive.

So far Balotelli has yet to react, but one is quickly reminded of some powerful remarks made by Super Mario in 2012 on racism:

I will not accept racism at all. It’s unacceptable. If someone throws a banana at me in the street, I will go to jail, because I will kill them.
