A few days after boycotting the sponsors of the Blues, the star of the Blues and Paris SG Mbappe did not hide his annoyance on his Twitter account this Thursday night about a joke about a sports betting site concerning his father.
Last week, the striker of the French team and PSG dried up a scheduled meeting in Clairefontaine with several sponsors of the French team, revealing a subject of discord that has persisted for several months.
It is, in particular, the online betting company (Betclic) that mainly poses problems for the 23-year-old star. Kylian Mbappé does not appreciate that his image is associated with this kind of site, which according to him, represents a real addiction among people with low incomes, especially young people.
In this tense context, Winamax, another sports betting site very present on social networks, including Twitter, is also in its viewfinder now following a dubious joke about his father.
The online betting operator had released an archive photograph of a shirtless spectator and bare buttocks in a football stadium with the caption:
“Wilfrid Mbappé during his son’s goal against South Africa.” Very annoyed response from the PSG striker and the French team on his Twitter account: “The danger of online betting… No longer have a limit. A little respect, please.” And all accompanied by angry emojis.
Posted around 9:25 p.m., Mbappé’s tweet had more than 95,000 likes and was retweeted some 20,000 times by 11:15 p.m.
The reaction of the player-star comes as he skipped last week a planned operation with several official sponsors of the French team at the last gathering of the Blues in Clairefontaine.
