Yes, I am. And from what I can judge, I'm not the only one.
"Monkey" is a sadly commonly used racist term to qualify people with African origins, aka, Black or half Black people. I think I don't need to make a drawing to explain, I'm sure you can get how offensive and insulting it is. When used to designate Tsonga, it can only mean one thing. I don't know the colour of your skin, but if you're Black and people are calling you monkey, I suggest you get offended.
I don't know if he knew what that word meant. If he did, he should definitely get bannish from here. If he didn't, it stays that he insulted a player and this isn't allowed.
We are not mocking him. Just stating the truth.
Oh yeah, like my family would get offended, give me a break. I ALWAYS disagreed with people giving too much importance to these words, because to me, when you call a black person a monkey, it's exactly the same as calling a fat person "fat".
It isn't nice, ok, but since when should it be an insult ??? since when black is insulting??? Next time think about this. Philo 101 for you.

As Xavier said it is impossible for you NOT to have known the connotation of the word monkey. Its something we see on a daily basis on football pitches
Except he wrote that UNintentionally, while you wrote it INTENTIONALLY, which, TO ME, is the difference between HIM and YOU. You get that pal ?
