    Three Tasmanian Penguins Football Club players caused a stir on social media after painting himself black as the Williams sisters to celebrate 'Mad Monday'.
According to the Mirror, Mad Monday is where Aussie Rules player traditionally celebrate their end of the season.

Though, the post by Beau Grundy was said to have been pulled down, but Sydney Swans player Aliir Aliir with pals Mitch Stanley and Matt Chamberlain were the stars that dressed up as the Williams sisters.


Grundy while posting the image on a Facebook group was captained: "William sisters and Aliir Aliir #MadMonday".
It led to a wave of criticism online with Hayley tweeting: " Tasmanian Penguins. Do you have a comment about the players in your team wearing 'black-face'..? Disgusting.
 They should be stood down immediately and permanently. Unless you support racists?
"Let this team know what you think about the latest display of repulsive racism. "

While another said: "How the f**k has Australia not gotten the memo that blackface is not a thing that you do, like ever?

"Here is a memo to White Australians everywhere because you've missed the last thousand memos on this: BLACKFACE IS RACIST! STOP DOING IT! ITS NOT OK!!! "

However, Daily Mail Australia are said to have contacted the players and club for comment.


Aliir (Sudanese player) struck the pose after Serena Williams called the US Open final umpire Carlos Ramos , a "thief".

This reaction generated a lot of hear, and it led to Australian cartoonist, Mark Knight creating a cartoon shared on Twitter and featured in the Melbourne newspaper, The Herald Sun, showing Williams with baby's dummy on the floor.

Many said it was overtly racist, but in an article published on The Herald Sun website, Knight defended his work and said he was "amazed" it had received such a strong reaction.

He explained: "I drew this cartoon Sunday night after seeing the US Open final, and seeing the world's best tennis player have a tantrum and thought that was interesting.

"The world has just gone crazy. "
He added: " The cartoon about Serena is about her poor behaviour on the day, not about race. "
