Leicester City Player Calls Man "Jap" At Casino, Apologizes

Leicester City are at it again. Striker Jamie Vardy was caught on camera at a Leicester casino On July 26th repeatedly calling a man “jap” because he thought he was looking over his shoulder at his cards. He has since apologized for the incident, but the club are investigating. Vardy started and scored in Leicester’s opening day win over Sunderland. He earned his first cap with England’s senior national team in May.

You might remember that two months ago, Leicester sacked Tom Hopper, Adam Smith, and James Pearson for their participation in a racist orgy during the team’s goodwill trip to Thailand, native country of owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha. The team now employs Shinji Okazaki, a Japanese forward, but Leicester City seemingly cannot get their players to stop with the anti-Asian racism.
