The comedian was hired to perform at the annual awards dinner.
The Professional Footballers Association (PFA) have demanded their money back from comedian Reginald D Hunter after he performed “offensive” material at their annual awards dinner.
The black, American stand-up was criticised for repeatedly using the word “n****r” and apparently being offensive towards Jewish people and women.
PFA deputy chief executive Bobby Barnes has made it clear that the organisation will be seeking to claim the fee they paid Hunter back.
“Whatever he was paid was too much,” Barnes told the Telegraph.
“There were anti-Jewish jokes, there were anti-women jokes, there were anti-Irish jokes, there was the repeat use of the ‘N’ word.
“This went so far over the boundary, it was totally unacceptable on every level, quite honestly.”
The comedian is known for his controversial routines but the PFA say they made it quite clear that they wanted no swearing or racist references in Hunter’s performance.
It is believed that the American was paid a five-figure sum for his 10 minute act at the Grosvenor Hotel in Mayfair, Central London, but now the PFA want that money back.
Representatives for Hunter have declined to comment at present.
At the annual awards ceremony Tottenham’s Gareth Bale was awarded the top prize of PFA Player of the Year for his 19 goals and four assists for Spurs this season.
The Welshman also picked up the Young Player of the Year award and becomes only the third footballer in history to do so – along with Andy Gray and Cristiano Ronaldo.
