Before addressing the media Sunday, Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst had a conversation with Devin Funchess to inform the veteran receiver his use of a racist slur against Asians after Saturday night’s practice was “very unacceptable.”
In banter with reporters Saturday, Funchess was discussing the difficulty in noticing smiles on faces that are hidden by masks.
“I can tell you were smiling when I see your face,” Funchess told a reporter. “I can see your face. Everybody goes (slur) and that’s when I know.”
Funchess simultaneously pointed to his eyes, an anti-Asian gesture.
