Paolo Berlusconi, the brother of former Italy PM Silvio Berlusconi and vice president of AC Milan, is under fire for a “racist” comment about the team’s latest acquisition, Mario Balotelli.

Paolo Berlusconi, who also runs the family newspaper, Il Giornale, made a derogatory reference about Mario Balotelli, a campaign rally in Milan: “Now, let’s go see the family’s little black boy, the hot head,” a pejorative term for black people.
