The post showed a mug Grealish had bought which featured a bizarre drawing of the footballer with breasts.
“What a cup of tea and what a mug” Grealish wrote, tagging Ake in the post.
Fans weren't expecting to see the post on Instagram
The picture was quickly deleted, but not before fans were able to take screenshots which have since gone viral.
The mug comes from the company Footballers With T**s, who posted about the Grealish order on Twitter: “A lot of people are assuming the story was deleted because of “wokeness” but I haven’t seen a single complaint.
“I asked Jack if he would post something but never expected anything. I was just buzzing about the order. In hindsight that put him in a tough position because footballers don’t generally go around posting t**s on the TL.
Looks like Grealish is a fan of the novelty mugs

“I imagine he either a) posted on stories for a bit so it wasn’t permanent but still helped us out, or b) Instagram took it down for policy violation.
“Though there’s always c) he got a frantic call from the club press officer, asking if he’d lost his f***ing mind”
Just another weird and wonderful day in the life of Jack Grealish, we guess.
