A racist act by Real Madrid against Vinicius? The incredible image


By: Manu Tournoux

Real Madrid has been the subject of immense controversy in Spain in recent hours. Explanations.

An essential star of Real Madrid and the Spanish championship, Vinicius Jr also fuels the news despite himself. The Brazilian international striker has been the victim of unspeakable racist acts on several occasions. Real’s matches against Valencia have crystallized all the tensions for a year and a half. Already the victim of monkey cries last season, Vinicius this time threatened not to play against the Ché club.

Against all expectations, it was not Valencia CF or its supporters who had a grievance with Vinicius Jr, but Real Madrid, his own club… The twirling dribbler would have suggested that he could give up playing this match because he would have been particularly upset against a club initiative.

The embarrassing image of Real Madrid

According to information from Relevo, Vinicius Jr would have criticized Real Madrid for an image published during an advertising campaign for the Israeli music group Vini Vici. It shows a photo of Vinicius kissing the Real Madrid crest, and juxtaposing a graphic which represents the evolution of the monkey towards the man, finally drawn like a DJ.

A very unwelcome publication in the explosive context which currently surrounds the Brazilian star, who has become a symbol of the fight against racism in Spain. Relevo specifies that Vinicius would have made his criticisms directly to his management who, for their part, would have undertaken to sanction the author of this publication on Instagram.
