Giannis Antetokounmpo lashes out at Greek TV Personality Who Called His Brother a ‘Monkey’

Thanasis Antetokounmpo, brother of NBA star Giannis, was called a monkey by TV announcer Takis Tsoukalas. The comment came after Thanasis helped his club, Panathinaikos, beat arch-rivals Olympiacos. The Antetokounmpo brothers are of Nigerian decent, but we’re born and raised in Athens and carry Greek citizenship. Giannis made his feelings immediately known on Twitter and Instagram.

Here are Giannis’ posts:




Bravo Giannis, great response. We’re all with the Antetokounmpo brothers!
