Barcelona apologized for Griezmann and Dembele viral video

Barcelona has apologized for a video that showed Ousmane Dembele and Antoine Griezmann denigrating Japanese hotel staff. The video was filmed in 2019 before the club’s pre-season tour to Japan. However, the video got viral recently as it was shared on the club’s YouTube page and social media.  

The Asian hotel employees visited the player’s room to fix a television, while the pair recorded a video laughing and mocking at them. But both football players have subsequently apologized and stated that their remarks had no racial implications.

The duo’s club Barcelona has issued a statement on their official website responding to the incident. FCB (Barcelona) apologized to anyone outraged by the video and stated that they reserve the right to take internal action against Dembele and Griezmann.

“FC Barcelona deeply regret the displeasure amongst Japanese and Asian fans and partners of our club caused by a video that appeared a few days ago on social media in which two first-team players (Ousmane Dembele and Antoine Griezmann) displayed a lack of respect in their attitude towards several employees in the hotel in which they were staying,” the statement read.

“This attitude in no way coincides with the values that FC Barcelona represents and defends. The values of the club and its sponsors should be something that FC Barcelona protects, and this belief is present at all levels of the organization, from the board of directors and executives to the players in the club’s various sporting teams.”

“The club is committed to improving its education on questions of race, discrimination, and diversity. At FC Barcelona there is no place for racism or discrimination. FC Barcelona would like to apologize publicly to all the club’s fans and partners who feel unhappy about this event from the summer of 2019, a time when the club’s responsibilities fell to a board directors and executive team previous to the current.”

“The board of directors that today manage the club are committed to making sure episodes of this nature do not repeat themselves. The players have already shown their regret and have apologized to Japanese fans and partners, something that the club values. Nevertheless, FC Barcelona reserve the right to take the internal measures that it considers appropriate.”
