It’s not racism, it’s SLANG: Rio responds to Ashley Cole ‘choc ice’ controversy

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.”
