Brazil’s Fernandinho target of racist insults

AFP

AFP, RIO DE JANEIRO: Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho and family members have been victims of racist insults on social media since his World Cup own goal on Friday, when Brazil was eliminated by Belgium in the quarterfinals of the World Cup in Russia.

Several internet users referred to the Manchester City player as a "monkey," while some even threatened to kill him after Brazil's 2-1 loss.

The player's wife, Rosa Glaucia, also found her Instagram account full of insults. "Your husband ruined everything," was one comment from guih_nevetti.

Fernandinho's mother had to close her Instagram account due to the heap of offensive comments on her profile.

Shocked by the racist messages, dozens of internet users rushed to Fernandinho's defense on social networks.

On the Mundo Negro site, which specializes in black culture, a message illustrated by a photo of Fernandinho underscored that "the defeat of Brazil and the own goal do not justify racism.
