The female Real Madrid goalkeeper, Misa Rodríguez, was the victim on Tuesday of a barrage of sexist insults through Twitter following a tweet where she shared a photo of herself in celebration with another of Marco Asensio. Faced with this unfortunate scenario, the Canary Islands deleted the publication, entitled “Same passion.”
From that moment on, the macho comments gave way to a multitude of messages of support, both from players and even from clubs like Barça. Asensio Vinícius Júnior himself or Marcelo Vieira, among many others, have supported the white goalkeeper with a clear message: “let nothing and no one prevent you from saying what you think.”
Asensio, Casemiro, Marcelo and Vinícius gave their support to Misa Rodríguez.
After the victory of Real Madrid against Liverpool (3-1), Misa published on her personal Twitter account a photograph in which she appeared celebrating a victory with another of Asensio after scoring the second goal for the English team. The two images had a common message: “Same passion”.
Shortly after uploading the tweet, Misa decided to delete it due to several offensive and macho comments that began to receive her publication. You could read offensive messages such as “she wants to stop two balls at the same time”, “same sexual orientation” or “as much passion as you want to drive it”.
Those comments that sexualized a simple tweet with which Misa intended to celebrate the victory of Real Madrid, led the white goalkeeper to delete the publication. However, on the morning of this Wednesday, a cataract of support began on social networks towards Mass. And one of them was the protagonist of the photograph, Marco Asensio, who wrote a phrase similar to that of his partner:
“Same passion. That nothing or no one prevents you from saying what you think,” Asensio said on his official Twitter account. Later, other names joined the white player. Almost all, with the same idea. Join photos of your celebrations with the one published by the Real Madrid player in her original message.
In this way, Vinícius Júnior placed a photograph next to that of Mass celebrating one of his many goals. Like Marcelo, Esteban Granero, a former Real Madrid footballer now at Marbella, Lucas Vázquez, Casemiro or Tottenham, who used Sergio Reguilón and Lucy Quinn. And, all, with the same message: “Same passion”.
In the afternoon Barcelona showed solidarity, which also published a tweet. In his case, the photograph was for the Argentine Lionel Messi and the player Mariona Caldentey, also in full moment of ecstasy celebrating goals and victories. At the international level, apart from Tottenham, Eintracht Frankfurt also supported Mass. André Silva and Laura Freigang starred in the images, which were accompanied by almost the same message: “Same shield. Same passion.”
Costa Rican goalkeeper Noelia Bermúdez also joined the list on behalf of her country. He placed a celebratory image of himself alongside another of Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Keylor Navas. “I love to see the world of soccer turned against machismo. Zero tolerance with these things. I dream of the day that it will be completely eliminated,” wrote Bermúdez, the last to join a long list of personalities and institutions that raised their voices to say “no to machismo”.
