On the heels of Greek triple jumper Voula Papachristou being expelled from the London Olympics for her tweets, now we have a Swiss soccer player facing the same punishment.
After a tough day on the pitch in Switzerland’s 2-1 loss to South Korea, Swiss soccer player Michel Morganella vented his frustration by posting an offensive comment on Twitter.
Morganella, who has constantly booed by South Korean fans after a rough challenge on Park Chu Young, took to his Twitter account on Monday after the match and tweeted, “ I want to beat up all South Koreans! Bunch of mentally handicapped retards! (“Je les tous Defonce Coréens, allez vous tous Bruler, bande de trisos”)
Morganella quickly tweeted an apology that read, “I’m sorry for what I just wrote before, it was under the emotions! And I apologize of my behavior”, but that didn’t stop his account from being suspended and the Swiss team from considering expelling him from the Olympics.
