The full back has been a regular for the French champions and was due to play a part in their Champions League game against Chelsea next week, but according to the reports he will now be left out.
Canal + journalist Pierre Menes originally tweeted that Aurier told him the video was a fake, but has since claimed that the defender has admitted to its authenticity.

Aurier has gotten himself into trouble on social media before, previously being suspended by UEFA for three games after posting a video on facebook criticising Dutch referee Bjorn Kuipers after their Champions League clash with Chelsea.
In the video he referred to him as a "dirty son of a b**ch".
