Swiss Footballer Michel Morganella Expelled from 2012 Olympics After Sending Racist Twitter Message Following South Korea Defeat

Oh dear. Sometimes offensive tweets are more a result of a misunderstanding or perhaps an over exaggeration towards comments made. This is not one of those occasions.

Swiss youngster Michel Morganella was seemingly unhappy at his side’s loss to South Korea at the 2012 Olympics decided to let take to Twitter where he made the following statement. 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”). Unsurprisingly the 23 has been expelled from the London games.
