BERLIN/January 04, 2018 (AP)(STL.News)—The son of former tennis star Boris Becker is pressing charges against a German nationalist lawmaker who insulted him with a Racist Slur.
Lawyer Christian-Oliver Moser told The Associated Press on Thursday that charges were filed on behalf of Noah Becker following “unbearable and racist remarks” from the Twitter account of nationalist lawmaker Jens Maier.
The tweet emerged after a magazine article was published, in which Noah, 23 said Berlin was a “white city” compared with London or Paris, and that he’d been attacked there because of his skin colour.
Noah is the son of three-time Wimbledon champion and his ex-wife Barbara Becker, who has a German mother and an African-American father.
Maier, a member of the Alternative for Germany party, has deleted Tuesday’s tweet and denied writing it.
