French star Ousmane Dembele in storm of racism after “mocking Asians” in leaked video – .


A video leaked to social media appears to show Barcelona and France star Ousmane Dembele mocking Asians because of their background and appearance.
The short clip shows three men, allegedly hotel technicians, gathered around a TV screen to try and get it to work.

Dembele is said to be the one who allegedly recorded the group of men on social media app ‘Snapchat’ – filming them and French co-star Antoine Griezmann.

The young winger is said to poke fun at the looks of Asian men, as well as their country’s alleged ‘technological breakthrough’.

Dembele seems to be saying to Griezmann: ‘All those ugly faces, just so you can play PES [Pro Evolution Soccer], you have no shame ? “




He then apparently adds, “What kind of backward language is this?” and “Are you technologically advanced in your country or not? “

The camera turns to Griezmann a few times, with the Barcelona star seemingly laughing throughout.

Dembele can also be heard giggling at times during the clip.

The short video was posted to social media on Friday, but it is believed to be an old clip.

Daily Star Sport has contacted Barcelona and the French federation for comment.



Griezmann’s haircut in the video is different from the one he sported at the European Championships before France was knocked out by Switzerland on penalties.

And reports in Holland suggest the video actually dates from 2019, when Barcelona spent time in Japan on a preseason tour.

If that schedule is correct, Griezmann had just joined La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid club.

The forward is known to be close to Dembele through his time at Camp Nou and his exploits for the national team.

However, Griezmann has already been caught in a storm of racism.

In 2017, he sparked outrage on social media by sharing his disguise which saw him pose for a blackface photo as he dressed as an NBA player.

Griezmann and Dembele’s France side saw their Euro glory vanish after a penalty shootout loss to Switzerland in the round of 16.

However, the latter was already watching the tournament on the sidelines after injuring his knee.
