In a video, prior to leaving the field, Neymar could be seen talking to an assistant referee who paid no attention to what Neymar was telling him. The assistant referee only urged Neymar to leave the field.
As a result, a Twitter user has slammed football’s ‘tolerance’ for racism. This twitter user bemoaned the fact that racism is appeared to be hated however, nothing seems to be done about it.
