A few days ago, the footballer Vinicius Junior was the victim of racist insults in a Spanish League match. This is not something new for the Brazilian, who suffers day after day harassment and humiliation due to his skin color.
On this occasion, Real Madrid was playing at the Mestalla, where the Valencia fans began to yell "monkey" at the athlete. Faced with such a situation, the youngster expressed that he did not want to continue playing and shortly after he was fired due to an altercation with the players of the Valencian team.
The unfortunate performance of the fans of the Valencian team has caused a lot to talk about in recent days, since Vinicius has been enduring this type of racist comments for many months and La Liga does not act.
The Real Madrid coach, Ancelotti, expressed his support for his player shortly after: "An entire stadium calls a player a 'monkey' and nothing happens... There is something wrong with this League. It is unacceptable. This has never happened to me. Vinícius is the victim of a very serious problem that the League has. You can't play football like that."
As a result of this unfortunate episode in the history of Spanish football, millions of people have condemned on social networks the racist attitude of those who charged Vinicius last Sunday at the Mestalla.
Anonymous people, professionals in the sector, influencers... many people have wanted to give their opinion and declare that they cannot afford this type of behavior in the middle of 2023. One of the content creators who has given her opinion through her profile Instagram is Violeta Mangriñán, who shares a special relationship with Vinicius because he is a friend of her partner, Fabio Colloricchio.
The young content creator, perplexed, uploaded a story to her official Instagram account explaining that, after having publicly supported the footballer, many followers sent her messages reproaching her for being from Barcelona and Valencia and defending the player. Before such comments, she was blunt: "Racist behavior has nothing to do with sports, it is RACISM."
He also explained to his followers that "what he is reading" scares him a lot, since many people are still determined that "they are football things" and that the situation is not as serious as they are painting it to be.
Faced with so many negative messages, controversial opinions and comments against the player, Violeta once again expressed her support and affection for the Brazilian with a photo of when she was pregnant with Gala and he visited them.
''You are the best player in the world Vinicius Jr. We love and admire you. No to racism'', the influencer has written without fear of criticism and very sure that taking a public position against xenophobia and racism is the right thing to do.
