Italian football club AC Milan are facing criticism online after a performing a strange version of the haka before a Serie A match against Carpi.
Video footage of the performance shows AC Milan doing a combination of movements – including a motion of rubbing cream on their faces – in front of the Carpi players lined up in front of them.
The performance was staged as a publicity stunt for the skincare brand Nivea and reportedly carried out by actors in AC Milan uniforms.
Fans and commentators were quick to lambaste the “haka” on social media:
Why the hell am I seeing pictures of AC Milan players doing the Haka before their game tonight? #embarassing
