Racist taunts directed against Brazil’s striker Rodrygo have been seen on social media in the aftermath of the World Cup qualifying match against Argentina.
The Black man, Rodrygo, wrote on Thursday, “There are always racists out there.” “An assortment of ridiculous content and insults have overtaken my social media accounts. Everything is visible to everybody.
The gamer added that images and emoticons of monkeys or bananas were included in a large number of the racist texts.
“The racists will act in a criminal manner if we don’t comply with their demands, conduct inappropriately, wear clothing that offends them, don’t turn away from attacks, or occupy areas they believe are theirs. Unfortunately for them. We won’t give up, Rodrygo said.
Following an altercation with Argentina’s Lionel Messi and Rodrigo De Paul during the delay caused by fighting between supporters, police, and security guards in the stands of the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Rodrygo gained notice during Tuesday’s game. The game was won 1-0 by Argentina.
Vinícius Júnior, Rodrygo’s Real Madrid teammate, received a lot of sympathy after being the object of racial taunts in Spain during the previous season.
