Former real madrid player, Cristiano Ronaldo private jet selfie has been criticized by twitter users as they consider it rather insensitive to the plight of another player Emiliano Sala, who is missing after a plane disappeared in England.
As the search for Sala was called off for the night, fellow footballer Cristiano Ronaldo tweeted a photo of himself taking a selfie in a private jet.
In another photo, he can be seen wearing a wide grin and giving a thumbs up in the aircraft as he left Madrid where he was given a suspended jail sentence for tax fraud
Fans, sports lovers, and pundits thought Ronaldo’s photo was insensitive and they called him out for it.
BBC pundit Gary Lineker retweeted Ronaldo’s photo and wrote:
Not the day for this tweet. It really isn’t.
Other Twitter users told him it was wrong and disrespectful for him to share such a photo at a time like this while some asked him if he had read the news about Sala at all.
