Soccer star Kevin-Prince Boateng is sending a powerful message with his new jewelry haul … getting a huge chain featuring the words “F#%k Racism.”
The backstory is interesting … back in 2013, Boateng made headlines when he walked off the pitch during the 26th minute of a friendly against Pro Patria after a bunch of racist fans spewed horrible epithets in his direction.
The moment put a spotlight on the racism problem in the soccer world and led to major changes in the game. In fact, FIFA later created a Task Force Against Racism and Discrimination … and Boateng became a United Nations ambassador, with a focus on combating racism in pro sports.
Now … Boateng is continuing to share his message — in diamond form this time … hitting up Gabriel the Jeweler to make it happen.
We’re told the piece is decked out in 70 carats of VVS diamonds sitting on a Cuban link chain.
Of course, Gabriel is the go-to guy for the biggest bling-happy athletes in the game — from Odell Beckham to Antonio Brown to Boateng’s bro, Jerome.
As for the value of the huge chain … we’re told it’s worth a whopping $100k!!!
