“Brooklyn Beckham’s gotta be ignorant AF if he thinks that’s not racist"

David Beckham’s son Brooklyn is facing backlash after ‘racist’ posts were seen on his Instagram.

Brooklyn Beckham, the son of Fútbol Miami star David Beckham and former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, is being accused of racism.

According to Yahoo, 19-year-old Brooklyn Beckham shared a photo on Instagram of Chinese tourists in a gondola and a picture of an Asian woman in the supermarket. In the caption, Beckham wrote, “no place like Italy innit”.

Chinese internet users have taken offence to his post, claiming it was “racist” and “insulting China”.

“Brooklyn Beckham is such a racist, he have (sic) to apologise to Asian people! he got no right to blame any tourists for visiting any country in this world!” one Twitter user wrote.

“Brooklyn Beckham’s gotta be ignorant AF if he thinks that’s not racist. So the Asian tourists were supposedly interfering with his true Venetian experience? Is he not a tourist himself though,” another tweeted.

“Hey Brooklyn Beckham. Perhaps you can ask that lady first if you want to take a photo of her. Besides, don’t act like you never go to a Chinatown. Kid there are so many things you have to learn. Don’t make the judgment easily. Finally, don’t play with fire and don’t be a coward,” one person wrote on Twitter.

Beckham has since deleted his Instagram post and made his account private.
