Football Players Painted Themselves Black To Impersonate Tennis’ Williams Sister In A Disgraceful Case Of Blackface

Three Australian amateur league football players painted their bodies black for their club’s Mad Monday celebration in a shocking case of Blackface.

Two of the Tasmanian Penguin Football Club players that painted their bodies were Mitch Stanley and Matt Chamberlain, dressed as Serena and Venus Williams.
Beau Grundy, the third, stood between the two men dressed as Sydney Swans player Aliir Aliir.

A Facebook page where costumes from Mad Mondays across the country are regularly featured shared the photo online, and Mr. Grundy posted the photo with the caption ‘William sisters and Aliir Aliir #MadMonday’.

Aliir is the first Sudanese player to be selected in the NAB AFL National Draft, and only the second to make an AFL list after Majak Daw.
The photo came only a week after the ‘disgustingly racist’ cartoon of Serena Williams that was published in the Herald Sun.

Mad Monday is an annual ritual were football clubs traditionally celebrate the end of the season.
