Rio Ferdinand has moved to diffuse the Ashley Cole ‘choc ice’ row by claiming he was using a slang term for someone who is being fake rather than a racist one.
Ferdinand laughingly reacted on Twitter last night after one person sent a tweet to him accusing Cole, who was a defence witness in the John Terry racism trial, of being a “choc ice”.
The term is commonly understood to mean “black on the outside, white on the inside”.
The person wrote: “Looks like Ashley Cole’s going to be their choc ice. Then again he’s always been a sell out. Shame on him.”
