The video sparked outrage, with several people condemning his behavior as they branded him a racist.   He later took to Chinese social media site Weibo, to post an apology video for his action.

Checkout the video below;

Just wanted to apologise for the video I posted on Snapchat yesterday,’ Alli said in the video. ‘It wasn’t funny. I realised that immediately and took it down.

‘I let myself down and the club. I don’t want you guys to have that impression of me. ‘It isn’t something that should be joked about. Sending all my love and thoughts and prayers for everyone in China.’ 

Since the deadly coronavirus broke out in the city of Wuhan in China, there have been 35,000 cases diagnosed around the world with over 700 deaths.
