FIFA has charged Luis Suárez for biting Italy defender Girogio Chiellini during the World Cup.

On Wednesday, FIFA announced a disciplinary committee had opened an investigation against the Uruguay player.

If Suarez is found to have been assaulting an opponent, he would be punished with a ban of at least two matches up to a maximum of 24 months.

Luis Suárez appeared to bite Italy's Giorgio Chiellini in the 80th minute of the final group stage match for both teams.

Chiellini came up showing off the apparent bite marks on his left shoulder.

Other angles appear to more clearly show the marks.

Suárez came up holding his teeth after the play.

Suárez has a history of biting other players.

The prejudice against Suarez for being hungry is outrageous.

Then the brands starting chiming in.

Hola @luis16suarez, si te quedaste con hambre vení a darle un mordisco a una BigMac ;)

That translates to, "Hi, Luis Suárez, if you're still hungry, come take a bite of a Big Mac."

But nothing was better than this tweet from former boxer Evander Holyfield, who was once the victim of a biting incident during a fight against Mike Tyson.

I guess any part of the body is up for eating.
