Excited about Big Brother Brasil 21, Neymar celebrated the possible elimination of Nego Di from reality. On Tuesday (16), the footballer returned to comment on the program on Twitter, but a failure to translate the platform caused the gringos to point out racism in the comment.
Vote in the poll -> Fiuk, Nego Di or Sarah: Who will be eliminated from BBB21?
“Complete Tuesday, huh? PSG win [Paris Saint-Germain, clube no qual o jogador atua] and the departure of Nego Di. What a day, friends “, Neymar published on the social network. However, when translated into English, the quote about the comedian was presented as” the black man’s exit “, which was interpreted by some users and by the international press as a speech racist.
“Whose exit?” Asked a user identified as Liban along with the image of a frightened man. Hours later, after receiving explanations about Nego Di, he apologized for the confusion: “If you are Brazilian, please ignore this tweet, it was a mistake”.
“Leaving the black man? What the fuck is that!”, Commented angrily another user identified as Raul Coop. The Spanish newspaper Marca also made the mistake and published a report with the speech about the black man. After alerts from the public and Neymar himself, who explained about the reality, the publication corrected the content.
Check out the tweets about the case:
