Griezmann was dressed as a basketball player, but the photo of him in blackface sparked outrage on social media.

Griezmann's original post had been retweeted more than 15,000 times as the image went viral around the world.
Following a storm of replies on the player's account, Griezmann followed up by calling the costume a tribute to the legendary basketball team.
"Relax, friends. I'm a fan of the Harlem Globetrotters and that attractive era".
