Although he was a white man himself, he and his wife suffered racial discrimination because of his Gypsy descent. When he became famous in 2016, he and his wife were refused access to a restaurant in the UK because of their Origins, Mr. fury recalled.
I couldnt believe it when I saw the sign at the door saying no Gypsies in, but the other side just repeated it. I asked him, I won the heavyweight World Championship on behalf of our country But they said, so what, youre still a Gypsy, youre still not allowed in.
You cant look at everyone by the same standards. Its terrible. Besides, everyone is comfortable with this reality. Its already 2020, and such discriminatory slogans are still everywhere at the bar door.
In fact, Furis racial discrimination because of his Gypsy descent is not a sports case. In the 2015-16 season, when Roma played against Juventus in Serie A, the red wolf captain Didier drossi denounced Juve as Gypsy shit during the match. Although this remark escaped the penalty of the ban, it also caused many condemnations.
In Serie A last season, Juventus players once again lay down their guns - in the away match against Brescia, pianici, who scored the winning goal for Juve, was hailed by the fans of the home team with such discriminatory slogans as zingaro and Gypsy.
