Following the incident, the Power fan was banned indefinitely from Port Adelaide games after targeting Betts in his 250th game.

At the time, Betts responded to the incident, highlighting how prevalent he believed racism to still be in the AFL.

"It's sad that racism still exists in our game," Betts told the Crows' website in 2016.

"Hopefully people can learn from it."

But fans continued to target Betts following the highly-publicised incident, with Port Adelaide suspending another of its fans following a racist slur in a Showdown clash in April of 2017.

The Power also found that its ruckman Paddy Ryder was racially vilified by a spectator in the same game.

The club released a statement following the 2017 incident, outlining that it had taken action against the member, who was a spectator at Adelaide Oval.

Betts has also previously been the target of racist abuse on social media in 2017, when a Power supporter, who was not a club member, likened him to an "ape" on Facebook and wrote that he should "go back to the zoo where him and his family belong".

Following the incident, Betts posted on his Instagram stating how he would not let racism stand in his way.

"I'll keep going… I have a job to do. Inspiring our next generation to be the best they can and making a change for our people," he wrote in 2017.
