Apology from Leicester City players over racist orgy in Thailand

Three Leicester City football players have apologized after film footage of an orgy was released. The footage was obtained by the UK’s Sunday Mirror and shows son of the clubs manager 22 year old defender James Pearson, striker Tom Hopped, 21 and goalkeeper Adam Smith, 22, naked in a hotel room with woman engaging in sex acts. In one clip, posted to the newspaper’s website, one man appears to heard calling of the women ‘slit eye’ a comment that has been deemed as a racist slur. In another clip another women is referred to as ‘minging’ and ‘an absolute one out of ten’ while another man laughs at the descriptions. During the clip, the trio shared with friends back in the UK, other offensive comments are made as the players laugh and egg each other on.

In a statement the club said “the players would like to convey their sincere apologies for their behavior to the women involved in the incident, to the club and its owners, to the club’s fans and their families.

Leicester City previously released a statement saying “We take the conduct of our players at every level extremely seriously and will take the appropriate action, if necessary, once the full facts of the situation have been established. Pending the outcome of an internal investigation the club will make no further comment”.

The club, touring Thailand in celebration after avoiding relegation from the Premier League, is owned by Thai billionaires Vichai and Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha. The three players have now been sent home.
