Lionel Messi leaving Barca isn’t the only big trending soccer news today.

On Thursday afternoon the Juventus FC Women’s Twitter account bizarrely posted a photo of a player wearing a training cone and making a slant-eye gesture that was immediately deemed racist. Despite the criticism from fans on Twitter, it took Juventus nearly half an hour to delete the tweet.

Juventus FC Women”s Twiter account went on to apologize for offending anyone while stating the tweet did not have any racial undertones.

The apology didn’t go over too well considering the picture clearly had racial undertones.
