Arsenal left-winger, Alex Iwobi has made a smelly mouth gesture that has caused a lot of reactions from social media users.
Last night, Arsenal came back from a 2-0 first leg deficit to humiliate Rennes by a 3-0 scoreline in front of home fans as discussed in an earlier report by iDONSABI.com.
During stoppage time of the encounter, Hamara and Iwobi had gotten into a scuffle but the latter withdrew from Hamara of Rennes holding his nose in a gesture that suggested that the Rennes player had a disturbing mouth odour.
Many have shown their disappointment for Alex Iwobi suggesting that he was wrong on all fronts and that it would have been tagged as a racist gesture if it were between a white and a black.
Recall that Gupta was fined sometime ago for calling the Gunner a gorilla. Here are reactions of Nigerians who feel the Nigerian’s reaction was uncalled for.
You insulted the first pic so hard even called him a racist but Celebrated the second pic. Called him a savage and clapped for him for being Stupid.

Bad move from Iwobi, this.
Thought he was being “funny” in front of thousands but he just looks like a total bell end.

What Iwobi did to that player yesterday was really dumb but y'all won't say anything because he's not a white guy.
God knows we'd be shouting racism on the TL if he was.
Black people are the problem of fellow black people.

Iwobi should be penalized for this act, I think that's disrespectful and embarrassing… What if the same was done to him by a white player, he won't be happy and will claim victim of racism.

The Iwobi video is disgusting and we need to call it what it’s. Flip it the other way round, If it was a white guy that did that to Iwobi, the ranting on here will be outrageous.

Forget! What Iwobi did might be painful and embarrassing but I don't think its that's serious. And you people should stop that nonsense black man to black man sentiment.
