Jude Cisse starred in S4C's 'Y WAG ar Wyliau', a reality television show about being married to a footballer.

On Instagram the business woman and television personality posted:

"People aren’t born with a stigma to Race, Religion, Age, Sexuality or Culture! Our children are the next generation, if I told my children to ignore these matters then what kind of example as a Parent would I be setting... surely it would be like telling them that this kind of behaviour is acceptable!!!"

Addressing recent headlines about racism in football, Miss Cisse said:

"You're going to a stadium, you're buying your ticket, you know that you are going to watch possibly black people play football so if you have a problem with it - don't go".

She added: "It doesn't make any sense to me".

Speaking to ITV News, the 43-year-old said:

"If there is the evidence of racism during a match, then surely the referee, the Managers, they should stop the game - remove the person that's being abusive or offensive - and continue."

"It's the only way it's going to set an example to everybody else".
