LIVERPOOL and Spain goalkeeper Pepe Reina is in hot water after starring in an advert branded as racist.

In the commercial for Spanish insurance company Groupama, Reina is seen joining a black jungle tribe.

The shot-stopper, whose name means ‘Queen’ in Spanish, is introduced to a spear-wielding tribal chief who declares: “Me King, you Queen.”

Reina responds by raising his eyebrows and saying sarcastically: “I feel safe.”

The advert is one of a series of ads which show the goalkeeper in ‘comically’ unsafe situations, and grateful for his insurance.

Simon Woolley, director of British pressure group Operation Black Vote, said: “I’m shocked. How would the Spanish feel if the English stereotyped
Spanish people as backward, stupid and animalistic homosexuals?

“Does he think his black team-mates will laugh at his joke?”

    Where has Simon Wooley been living? Reina’s black teammates publicly stood by lauding Suarez during his far worse show of racism so I really doubt they will give two shakes of a monkeys boaby about it. Who knows, they may even a make a t-shirt in appreciation of him
