Neymar defends himself after displaying his help for Bolsonaro

Neymar has defended himself in opposition to criticism geared toward his public help for incumbent President Jair Bolsonaro, days earlier than an ultra-polarized election in Brazil.

The Seleçao star striker spoke in a tweet printed on Friday. ‘We speak about democracy and plenty of issues, however when somebody has a special opinion they’re attacked by the identical individuals who speak about democracy. Go determine’, tweeted the Paris St-Germain participant.

In a video posted on Tik-Tok on Thursday, Neymar smiled and mimed a music calling for individuals to vote for the Brazilian president, a candidate for re-election in a poll whose first spherical takes place on Sunday. Along with his eight million subscribers on TikTok and practically 180 million on Instagram, he’s a robust help for the outgoing head of state left behind within the polls by the left-wing ex-president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.

Jair Bolsonaro shortly tweeted Neymar’s video, including as a remark ‘Thanks, @neymarjr!’.


This public help for Neymar has led to many reactions on social networks and within the Brazilian press. Among the many critics is the previous Brazilian worldwide Walter Casagrande, who judged in one in all his columns for the Brazilian media UOL Esporte that Neymar had “proven all his inconsistency, his alienation, and his lack of social conscience”.

The previous Sao Paulo Corinthians striker notes that regardless of his open help for his teammate Richarlison, who was lately the sufferer of a racist act on the Parc des Princes, ‘Neymar helps the candidate with essentially the most prejudice in Brazilian political historical past, who has already made homophobic, macho and clearly racist remarks.

In response to this column, Neymar replied with a ‘like’ of a tweet mocking Casagrande.
