LA Galaxy ‘Part Ways’ With Aleksandar Katai After Wife’s ‘Racist and Violent’ Social Media Posts

Los Angeles Galaxy player, Aleksandar Katai, has agreed to part ways with the team after his wife made “racist and violent” statements on her Instagram.

The statements have since been deleted, but, according to CNN, “Tea Katai posted twice on her Instagram, the first post calling for protesters to be killed, and the second showing a suspected looter holding a shoebox with the caption, ‘Black Nikes Matter.’”

The Associated Press reported that she also labeled protestors as “disgusting cattle” and that the posts were made in her native language, Serbian.

Once brought to the Galaxy’s attention, they were quick with a response.

“Earlier today, the L.A. Galaxy was made aware of a series of racist and violent social media posts … The L.A. Galaxy strongly condemned the social posts and requested their immediate removal,” the team said in a statement.

Katai, 29, who was in his first season with the Galaxy, labels his wife’s comments as unacceptable and takes full responsibility on his Instagram.

“These views are not ones that I share and are not tolerated in my family,” he wrote. “This is a mistake from my family, and I take full responsibility. I will ensure that my family and I take the necessary actions to learn, understand, listen, and support the black community.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

On Friday, the Galaxy announced in a statement that the team and Aleksandar have “mutually agreed to part ways.”
