Offensive: Apparently Materazzi called Zidane, "the son of a terrorist whore' before adding 'so just f*** off' for good measure,"*
Really Offensive:The subsequent onslaught of articles talking about Zidane's "dark side" and his "demons from the past".
Yes, his family were poor and from abroad, but from the tone of some news reports you would think he was a subhuman raised by wolves. However, he is Arab, so it's obviously acceptable to talk about him in such terms.
*"Son of a terrorist whore" is a actually a really poor insult. Surely someone can't be a terrorist and a whore? I thought being a terrorist wouldn't leave much time for street-walking on the side.
