The Brazilian took his official Instagram account after the game to call out the La Liga officials for failing to curb the racial fans. According to Vinicius, racism has become a part of the Spanish league but believes he will be strong in the face of this situation.

Tebas and Vinicius were involved in a back-and-forth row on social media when the player accused La Liga of being racist. The President released a statement on Wednesday, May 24th, 2023, according to him, the message he sent to the player was interpreted wrongly.

I didn't mean to attack Vinicius, but if people understood it that way I have to apologise. That was not my intention, far from it. I was trying to clarify a situation and explain it.

Vinicius criticised the post for targeting him instead of racists, saying he wanted La Liga to take actions and punishments.
