Why footballers are all using the hashtag?
During a match against Villarreal in 2014, Barcelona right-back Dani Alves wanted to take a corner and the fans threw a banana for him to eat, because of the color of his skin.
Unfortunately, the Brazilian legend took the banana from the ground and ate it before he took the corner.
He was racially abused and it’s unacceptable. Therefore, a lot of top players took to their page to show support to the Brazilian.
The likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Neymar Jr, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho posted a photo eating banana and also used a hashtag of ‘We’re all monkeys’ Say no to racism.
Here’s the video below: Despite the boos and everything during the game, Dani Alves still provided an assist against Villarreal.
