The girlfriend of Stoke City striker Kenwyne Jones has criticised the prank by his team-mates that involved placing a pig's head in his locker.
She tweeted that it was "not even close to funny" as Jones is a Rastafarian, so does not eat pork:
Big men acting like kids a pigs head is not a prank its just disgusting!!!!! Wtf??? I don't get how was that sup 2 be funny!!!! Really???
Listen 4 all those who don't get it lay the f! back! Where I come from that's not anywhere close 2 funny! Esp not knowing religious beliefs
It just takes a minute to be sensitive to someone's beliefs no one says u can't have a sense of humour but let it be a joke! This wasn't!
