Mario Balotelli has blasted Nigerian born Italian senator Toni Iwobi. The Italian striker was racially abused in a league match last month. Iwobi is the first black senator in Italy. He kicked up a racial storm after standing for the far-right, anti-immigrant League party Italy international, Mario Balotteli, has attacked the country's first black senator Toni Iwobi. The former Liverpool striker who plays for French Ligue 1 side, Nice, took to his Instagram on Tuesday, March 6, to lash out at Iwobi. "Maybe I'm blind or perhaps they have not told him yet that he is black. But shame!!!" the footballer posted on Instagram. Accompanying the text was a photo of Iwobi and League leader Matteo Salvini, both raising clenched fists and wearing T-shirts saying "Stop Invasion" at an anti-immigration rally. However, Balotelli later pulled down the post slamming Senator Iwobi. In Februray, Mario Balotelli was booked by a referee for pointing out racist chants made during his Nice's 3-2 loss to Dijon. This prompted the anti-discriminatory body Fare demanding the striker should get added protection from referees for highlighting such abuse. There have been black members of Italy's Chamber of Deputies, lower house, but the 62-year-old Toni Iwobi, is the first black senator. Iwobi thanked Salvini in his Facebook post celebrating his election, and called him a great leader. Born in northern Nigeria, Iwobi came to Italy in 1976 and became a councillor for Lega (the League) in the Lombardy city of Spirano in 1995. Toni Iwobi was elected on Sunday for the anti-immigration Lega party making history as the first black senator in the European nation.
