The Anti-Racism Banana Trend Was Actually Planned! But As Long As It Works, Who Cares?!

| Filed under: ZportzFoodGIFs

dani alves banana anti racism movement(1)

We reported earlier how Barcelona defender Dani Alves had a banana thrown at him mid-match, and instead of ignoring the insult, he decided to eat the banana!

After that a slew of other players, including Neymar and Mario Balotelli, have posted pictures of themselves eating bananas, including the slogan: "We are all monkeys."

While we thought this was a spontaneous bit of viral altruism, apparently the whole idea has been planned all along.

But not in a bad way!

According to reports from Spain, after Neymar and Dani were racially abused in Espanyol in late March, they decided to decided to team up with marketing agency Loducca, eat the next banana thrown at them, and launch the awareness campaign.

According to Guga Ketzer, a partner of Loducca, the idea was simple:

"Actions speak louder than words. A gesture needs no translation and what we’re seeing is that this has gone viral, globally. The idea was for Neymar to eat the banana, but in the end it was Alves, and that works just the same. The best way to beat prejudice is to take the sting out of the racist action so it isn’t repeated. We created #somostodosmacacos and #weareallmonkeys, with the gesture of eating a banana, and it has been turned into a movement."

Whether this was planned or not is irrelevant to the plan's success!

Keep up the good work guys!

    Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn’t. This isn’t fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or im sorry -

    Banana false flag? That's all well and good unless it caused a race riot and people were hurt or died. Soccer fans can be hyped up. Wiki Altamont free concert.
