Balotelli slams Kanye West for slavery comments

Mario Balotelli has criticised rapper Kanye West for comments the American made over slavery.

Kanye West claimed the enslavement of African Americans over centuries was as a result of “choice”.

Speaking to TMZ , the 40-year-old said: “When you hear about slavery for 400 years… for 400 years? That sounds like a choice.

“You was there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all? It’s like we’re mentally imprisoned.”

West partially retracted his comments saying: “Of course I know that slaves did not get shackled and put on a boat by free will. My point is for us to have stayed in that position even though the numbers were on our side means that we were mentally enslaved.”

However, his comments has led to a backlash from many people, with Balotelli speaking from the footballing world.

“What kind of bull***t coming out of your month?” Balotelli said on Instagram. “Really? Slavery was by choice? Brother, seriously, who brainwashed you?”

Balotelli, who was born to Ghanaian parents and adopted by an Italian, most recently
claimed that he received racial abuse from a section of Dijon fans during a 3-2 defeat in Ligue 1.

In the past, the Italian has hinted that his ongoing exclusion from the Italian national team can be traced to race, although he recently indicated that he would like a transfer back to Serie A in the summer.

The 27-year-old striker has scored 15 goals in 25 league games for Nice this season and is aiming to take them into the Europa League next season before his likely departure.
