REAL MADRID STAR’S PERFORMANCE ON INSTAGRAM GROWS AFTER RACISM SUIT

In Brazil, there is a popular proverb that states, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” Due to its bitter flavor, the lemon in this case represents a disagreeable situation. If there is one bitter thing in the modern world, it is discrimination of any kind, whether based on race, gender, national origin, or any other basis.

What happened to Real Madrid forward Vincius Jnior was one of those anomalies that the world, or the vast majority of it, no longer accepts.

This can be demonstrated by the player’s digital performances on Instagram, a social media platform with a greater proportion of interactions than Twitter, Facebook, and TikTok in the majority of countries.

From the 20th to the 24th of May, Vini Jr’s official Instagram page received 26.5 million interactions, the most of any football player.

This result was achieved due to Vincius Junior’s aggressive nature. Without hesitation, Vincius posted resolute messages against entities and regions of Spain that engage in discriminatory behavior. His post garnered a staggering 617,000 comments, the majority of which supported the athlete and condemned racism.

Currently, it is the position with the most interactions in 2023 among all football players.

It was neither the first nor the second nor the third occurrence. La Liga has normalized racism. The competition, the Federation, and opponents all believe it to be normal. I’m truly apologetic. Racists currently hold the championship once held by Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Cristiano, and Messi. This beautiful nation, which welcomed me and which I adore, appears to have agreed to share its image as a racist nation with the rest of the world, Vinicius wrote in a strongly worded blog post excerpt.

Guilherme Neto, the Digital Manager of Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama, a club that has used digital platforms to combat any form of discrimination, explains how effective social media can be in the struggle against racism and other forms of discrimination.

“More people will be affected the more those with a voice and thousands of followers engage in the fight against prejudice. Consequently, the spread and non-normalization of these episodes will intensify. It is significantly easier for you to lead by example. In this recent instance, Vini Jr. and his staff performed admirably and set an example for other athletes and institutions.

As demonstrated by the number of interactions, the fight against racial prejudice now has a new ambassador. According to our comprehension, the increase in followers in this instance is evidence of those who are outraged by incidents of this type.

Here is Vinicius Jr.’s increase in Instagram followers in 2023:

Vini also has the fifth-most-popular post of the year: a video in which he enumerates numerous instances of prejudice, demonstrating that this is not a one-time occurrence but a recurring issue. This post has garnered over 6.8 million engagements and 302,000 comments.

As we follow the case’s development on social media, we hope that this episode will be a turning point in the struggle against the pervasive racism in our society.
