Fati was one of Barca's star players this week as he scored a goal and set up another in the Blaugrana's 5-1 victory over Ferencvaros in the Champions League.
Afterwards, ABC published a piece which included the following:
"Ansu was close to scoring with a kick of a pure striker, perfectly turning his body. Ansu when running has something similar to a gazelle, he looks like a young and black street seller, the one you could see running in the Paseo de Gracia shouting "water, water" when the policemen arrive," the report read.
Ansu es un chico excepcional que merece respeto como cualquier ser humano. No al racismo y no a la mala educación. pic.twitter.com/LZuJOzoTMG— Antoine Griezmann (@AntoGriezmann) October 21, 2020
"Postcards of a jungle in the heart of the city. Now it doesn't happen anymore because of Ada Colau [Mayor of Barcelona], the delinquents are the policemen and not the street sellers, who don't need to run away quickly anymore. It is true that without tourists, their business goes down."
The disgusting words were seen by Griezmann, who slammed the terminology used, insisting the 17-year-old "deserves respect".
"Ansu is an exceptional boy who deserves respect just like all other human beings," the Frenchman posted on Twitter.
"No to racism and no to bad manners."
Since breaking into the Barcelona squad last season, Fati has become one of the most sought-after wonderkids in Europe.
He is currently Barca's leading goalscorer in the 2020/21 campaign so far.
