The Italy international took to social media to denounce the abuse.
On Instagram, Balotelli posted a blank black photo and a message to the ‘French people’.
“Yesterday the result against Bastia was right.. we will work more and try to get our objective.. the referee was good too👍🏾 but I have a question for French people..
Is it normal that Bastia supporters make monkey noise end “uh uh” for the whole game and no one of the “commissions discipline ” say nothing? So is racism LEGAL in France? Or only in Bastia ?
Football is an amazing sport .. those people like Bastia supporters make it horrible ! VERGOGNA DAVVERO.”
Balotelli has scored 10 goals in 15 appearances in all competitions this season for Nice. His side is in first place, currently one point above Monaco in the Ligue 1 table.
