The Frenchman was hoping to make a funny impression on his fans, little did he know that his photo in the painted black skin is going to backfire. Global Football writer Rob Harris Tweeted his Instagram and Twitter posts :

Realizing his mistake, Griezman apologized to his fans via a Tweet in which he wrote, “Calm down guys, I am a Harlem Globetrotters fan … it’s a tribute.” and had to delete it later as well. Finally, he came up with a much decent apology saying, “I agree that it’s awkward for me. If I hurt some people excuse me.”
