Awful Brazilian Soccer Fans Wrestle Jersey From Sobbing Boy's Hands

March 18, 2019

After a match between Atlético Mineiro and América this past weekend, Brazilian soccer star Alerrandro threw his jersey to a boy in the stands. But it was only a matter of seconds before a mob of awful men wrestled the jersey from the hands of the boy, who began crying hysterically. Globo Esporte reports that, after learning about the dispiriting incident, Alerrandro tracked the boy down and intends to give him another jersey. As Deadspin notes, "A nice gesture, certainly, but one that’s too late to shield the boy from a truth he’ll never be able to forget: Soccer fans are awful."
