Posted by

An unnamed alcohol company in Uruguay has launched a new product in support of fellow Uruguayan Edinson Cavani after the player was banned for using a ‘racially offensive’ term on social media report the RTE.

33 year old Manchester United striker Edinson faces a 3 match ban by the FA for racism. Before United played Southampton, Cavani posted a message of thanks on his Instagram in his native language that that read ‘Gracias negrito’, this was ripped to shreds by rival fans and the FA with Manchester United coming to their forward’s defence stating that this is a non-offensive term in Uruguayan Spanish and that people had misunderstood the South American.

The FA later revealed that they didn’t think Edinson was a racist but that he used a ‘racially offensive’ term says the RTE. In support of Edinson an alcohol company in Uruguay is not creating a new product called ‘Gracias negrito’ which promoter Silvina Rosas revealed “It had to be a very black wine” when showcasing the product.
