Cristiano Cristiano lost his blue tick. The blue tick on Twitter is a mark of verification that confirms a person’s status. The blue tick was only visible on the pages of famous people, but Twitter’s owner Elon Musk demanded an eight-pound subscription to Twitter Blue to maintain their verification.
Ronaldo, despite being one of most popular athletes in history, has lost his verification. The Portuguese sportsman has more than 100 million Twitter followers and is the site’s most popular athlete. Elon Musk’s claim that there are too many corrupted verified pages on Twitter led to the rule change.
Al-Nassr’s forward isn’t the only one who has lost his verification mark. Other celebrities like Virat Kohli, Donald Trump, and The Pope have also lost their blue ticks. It should be only a matter time before these verifications are restored on their pages.
The disciplinary committee does not punish Ronaldo for his “obscene gesture”, in response to the chants.
Ronaldo appears to make a sexist gesture after losing against Al-Hilar
Cristiano Ronaldo won’t be punished for grabbing his crotch after “Messi”, chants. The Portuguese were unable to produce a match-winning display for Al-Nassr during their recent loss to Al-Hilal.
According to reports, the disciplinary committee decided not to impose a fine or suspend the Portuguese footballer. In the aftermath of the incident, his club supported the 2016 Euros champion. Al-Nassr’s board of directors released a press release in this regard explaining that Ronaldo was injured. The challenge between Cuellar and the Al-Hilal footballer began with a punch in a sensitive area. “This is confirmed information.”
It is not the first instance that the arch-rival of the five-time UCL champion has been the target of chants. In previous matches, the forward has also been subjected to “Messi’ chants. The Portuguese will hope to bounce back and perform at his best against Al-Wehdah. After falling further behind in title race, the Faris Najd is hoping to win silverware by winning the King’s Cup of Champions.
