Fans of Free Fire player Victor “EL Mito” raised the hashtag on Twitter “We are with you Mito”. However, the hashtag was confused with support for President Bolsonaro.
Victor “EL Mito”, is only 13 years old and would have suffered offenses during his last live broadcast. Several other Free Fire athletes and influencers took a stand on Instagram after the event. On Instagram, they raised the tag “Força Mito”.
But it was on Twitter that the hashtag that started supporting the player, victim of racism, quickly reached the trending topics of Twitter Spain. But the reason was another, it was swamped by supporters and critics of the president of Spain, Jair Bolsonaro.
