The AFL has commenced yet another investigation into claims of racial abuse after Lions star Charlie Cameron was allegedly attacked during his side's win over Collingwood on Friday night.

Slotting four goals in the four-goal win, Cameron may have proved the difference in Brisbane's critical victory over the Pies, but the night was soured significantly, with the exhilarating goalscorer reportedly abused by a member of the Marvel Stadium crowd during the course of the contest.

According to reports from News Corp on Saturday afternoon, a solitary patron was said to have targeted the 29-year-old forward, with others in the outer dutifully reporting anti-social behavior.

Collingwood, Brisbane and the league have since confirmed that they are aware of the incident and that an investigation has been launched.

Depressingly, Cameron is not the only First Nations footballer attacked by Magpie fans this season, with Power forward Willie Rioli the target of vile online abuse during Collingwood's clash against Port Adelaide in July.

“There is no room for racism in our game and we will not tolerate it – not on the field, off the field or online,” Collingwood CEO Craig Kelly said of the unisolated incident.

“All of us have a responsibility to call out this behaviour and our club is committed to playing a role in educating as many members of the wider community as possible.”

Collingwood also denounced booing from its fanbase that was directed at retiring great Lance Franklin during the club's Round 8 clash against Sydney at the MCG.

Club president Jeff Browne and captain Darcy Moore were also present during former St Kilda star Nicky Winmar's healing ceremony at Victoria Park in April, marking 30 years since the Noongar man was the target of racial abuse from Collingwood fans.

Collingwood has stated publically that it remains committed to preventing racial hurt in accordance with the findings of the 2021 'Do Better' report into systemic racism at the football club.
