Atletico Madrid star Griezmann causes controversy over black-face costume
The France national team star has since apologized, but is facing significant backlash
France and Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann had an '80s-themed party to attend this weekend, and he is now under a lot of fire for his choice of a costume. The huge basketball fan dressed up kind of like a Harlem Globetrotter and decided to paint his skin in the process. Take a look:
As you could imagine, there was plenty of backlash for the costume.
And the player quickly took to Twitter to apologize, after telling people to calm down.
"I agree that it [was wrong of] me. If I hurt anybody, forgive me," he wrote.
