Brazil’s Legend Pele Reacts to the Racial Abuse Against Vinicius Jr
Brazil’s legend, Pele has reacted to the racial abuse that has been thrown at his countryman, Vinicius Jr.
The Real Madrid forward player has received a lot of backlash from some part of Spanish supporters because of his dance celebration whenever he scores a goal. The President of the Spanish Agents Association, Pedro Bravo, compared Vinicius’ behaviour to that of a monkey after the Brazilian winger performed his goal celebration dance against Mallorca, on Sunday, September 11th, 2022.
Football is joy. It’s a dance. It’s more than that. It’s a real party. Although unfortunately, racism still exists, we will not allow that to stop us from continuing to smile. And we will continue to fight racism every day in this way: fighting for our right to be happy and respected. #BailaViniJr
