Manchester United midfielder Fred has said "we are bigger and better than that" after being racially abused on social media following Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final defeat at Leicester.
The Brazil international was racially abused in the comments on an Instagram post from March 18, after being at fault for Leicester's first goal in the 3-1 defeat at the King Power Stadium.
Five days later, Instagram confirmed it had removed a number of accounts related to the incident.
Fred's backpass sold goalkeeper Dean Henderson short as United tried to play their way out of defence, with Kelechi Iheanacho taking full advantage to open the scoring after 24 minutes.

Responding to the abuse, the midfielder posted on his Twitter and Instagram accounts on Monday night: "Social media comments filled with hate and, above all, racism: we cannot feed that culture.
"We cannot accept it. We have to fight it always. We are bigger and better than that. Enough!"
It is just the latest in a series of abuse directed at Manchester United players in recent weeks after Anthony Martial was racially abused on social media after the 1-1 draw away to West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League on February 14.
Martial played 66 minutes before being replaced by Mason Greenwood as United came back to level against West Brom after going behind inside two minutes.
After the game, the France international was subjected to abuse on his Instagram account, with a number of users posting racist messages and symbols on his photos, and using the N-word.
It comes after Martial, along with team-mate Axel Tuanzebe, was abused after the team's loss to Sheffield United on January 27, while Marcus Rashford also posted a statement about comments directed at him in late January.
Sky Sports News have contacted both Instagram and Manchester United for a response, with the latter saying they are aware of the abuse.
