Colombia Soccer Player Offers Scripted Apology for Racist ‘Slant Eyes’ During Match in South Korea

Colombia football player Edwin Cardona, who is currently the midfielder of Boca Juniors in Argentina, has offered an apology to the gesture he made during a friendly match with South Korea on November 10 at Suwon World Cup Stadium in Seoul.

I didn’t mean to disrespect anyone, a country or a race, but if anyone felt offended, or interpreted it in that way, I am sorry,” Cardona said through a video posted in the team’s Twitter account, as reported by Associated Press.
