Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has come under fire after using the N-word during celebrations for his 32nd birthday.
The ‘Gypsy King’ posted an 11-minute video on his Instagram page showing off happy scenes in his household alongside his five children, but Fury used the racial slur while signing ‘Juicy’ by Notorious B.I.G.
The British fighter repeated the lyrics ‘And if you don’t know, now you know, n**** while holding his youngest son Prince Adonis. He was also surrounded by his other sons Prince John James Prince Tyson Fury II and daughters Venezuela and Valencia Amber.

Fury appeared in good spirits as he enjoyed the day with his family and wife Paris, but now faces backlash for using the offensive term while opening presents in their kitchen.
He was also treated to a lavish birthday cake with a Manchester United kit on the top and his name written at the base.
Sportsmail has approached MTK Global, who represent Fury, for comment.
Social media has been responding to Fury’s use of the word, with one user claiming anyone mentioning it while singing a song should be educated instead of attacked.
‘Anyone who uses the N-word whilst singing a song or making reference, that isn’t black and had no ill intent they most likely aren’t racist so instead of attacking them educate them it why they cannot use the word in any situation.’
But Fury has come under fire for his choice of words, especially in front of his children

However, another said Fury should apologise for his actions, and said there was ‘no excuse’ for using the term.
‘No apology from @TysonFury yet? It doesn’t matter if it’s in a song you are singing along to. There is no excuse to use the N word. Especially when your kids are singing along too. Disappointing.’
The world champion is preparing for a trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder later this year after taking the American’s WBC title belt off him after stopping him in February.
The fight was scheduled for this summer but looks to be delayed until the end of the year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
