Sports News: Rio Ferdinand claimed the situation was ‘well and truly out of hand’ today as his reaction to a tweet describing Ashley Cole as a ‘choc ice’ for supporting John Terry continued to provoke outrage.

I was not being racist,” said the former England player. “’Choc ice’ is not a racist term. It does not mean being black on the outside and white on the inside or anything like that.”

It’s when you freeze a poo and use it as a dildo. Everyone knows that.”

Ferdinand, who spent the weekend defending himself on Twitter, insisted that Cole was a ‘good mate’ and that describing him as a cold lump of sex-shit was just one of many terms of endearment popular in the locker room of the national side.

‘Choc ice is the least of it!’ Ferdinand tweeted last night. ‘If I explained to u lot what ‘wagon wheel’ or ‘cola cube’ really meant u wd all vom up on ur keyboards LOL#racistrio‘.

    I agree. I considered he might just believe it meant ‘fake’ but decided no, it’s a racist term from within the black community.

    would have thought more of rio if he manned up and said yes, but he’s the same as terry probably worse. asking cole to see his colour before his friendship . everyone knows what choc ice means…….. ‘has been’ rio should focus his energy on antons lawyer. if you can’t get a conviction with that ammount of evidence, when will you pal?

    Surely, the real racists in this row are the people who got worked up about the word “black” – they obviously feel that being black is something to be ashamed of; Just racists shouting anti-racist slogans…
