N-word use condemned 'irrespective of context'

The Let's Kick Racism Out of Football campaign has told ITV News they condemn the use of the n-word "irrespective of context" after comedian Reginald D Hunter's controversial performance at the PFA awards last night.

It is a matter for the PFA and enquiries related to it should be directed there.

Kick It Out condemns racial slurs, the use of the n-word irrespective of context, and will act on any complaints made to the organisation on it.
