Betts addresses racism 1:03

AFL: Eddie Betts has discussed the effect racial vilification has had on his family.

THE AFL has reportedly contacted Port Adelaide Football Club after photos were posted to social media today showing a man wearing a Nazi swastika with his Power guernseys.

Two different pictures show the man displaying the Nazi symbol on his left shoulder while wearing two different Power jumpers.

The pictures were taken in Melbourne over the Easter weekend, according to one social media user.

The Advertiser understands the AFL contacted Port Adelaide after seeing the photos today and the club is trying to establish whether the man is a Power member.

One of the photos posted on Twitter showing a man wearing a Port Adelaide jumper and a Nazi swastika on his sleeve.

Another social media user claimed the man preaches “hate speech” and is mentally unstable.

It comes after racism was directed at indigenous Port and Crows players during Showdown 42.

Port suspended the membership of one of its fans for racially abusing Eddie Betts during the game at Adelaide Oval.

Both the Crows and Port have called for a Crows fan to come forward over racist taunts directed towards Power player Paddy Ryder during the Showdown.

Additionally, Port supporter Maxine Spratt was reported for using a carriage service to menace, harass or cause offence towards Betts after the game on April 8.

Ms Spratt said she received death threats after writing on Facebook that he “should go back to the zoo where him and his family belong”.

She will be summonsed to appear at the Adelaide Magistrates Court at a later date.
