Wigan chairman Dave Whelan has accepted a Football Association misconduct charge over comments he made regarding Jewish and Chinese people and has requested a non-personal hearing.
Wigan owner Dave Whelan must be punished for his latest remarks about Chinese people, a Chinese community leader has told ITV News.
"If we let one go then another people will think it's alright," Michael Wilkes, from the British Chinese Project, told ITV News' Ian Payne.
"He set a precedent and he needs to pay the consequences.
"He is the representative of that football club [Wigan Athletic] and the Football Association has to take a very strong stance on this."
The Football Association says it is looking into comments made by Wigan Athletic owner Dave Whelan about Chinese people.
In an interview with the Jewish Telegraph, the 78-year-old said he "used to call the Chinese Chingalings".
An FA spokesperson told ITV News: "We aware of these remarks and we are looking into them."

The 78 year-old was granted a one week extension to respond to an existing charge yesterday after suggesting "Jewish people chase money" in an interview last month.
Whelan apologised for those comments through the Jewish Telegraph today, but has risked even greater punishment with his latest controversial remark.
“When I was growing up," he confessed. "We used to call the Chinese ‘chingalings’. We weren’t being disrespected [sic]. We used to say: ‘We’re going to eat in chingalings.’"

Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan has told ITV News he will resign if an FA investigation finds him guilty of making racist remarks.
Mr Whelan is under fire for remarks he made defending the club's manager, Malky Mackay which have been criticised as anti-semitic and racist.
If the FA look into my affairs - and they were to find me guilty, which I hope they don't and I don't see anything like that happening because I'm absolutely anti-racist, always have been, always will be - however, if they have any questions I'm willing to answer it and, should they even suggest I'm guilty I would immediately resign from my position as chairman of Wigan Athletic.
