While Luis Suarez's alleged bite on Giorgio Chiellini during Uruguay's 1-0 World Cup victory over Italy has made headlines all around the world for its vulgarity, it seems Uruguay fans do not view the incident with the same shock or disdain.
"No, no we don't do that!" one supporter said when asked if the incident was a bite.
"It's complicated, it's very complicated," another answered. "The problem is that he [Suarez] will have to go to the dentist now."
