Kaka Red Card: Social Media Reacts

By Peter Chubb - Jun 21, 2010

There has been outrage today following the 2010 World Cup match between Brazil and the Ivory Cost – not because of the score but why the ref sent Kaka off. This was totally unjust, so much so that the social media world has reacted to this shocking decision.

Kaka – regarded as one of the best football players in the world had to be sent off, as it was his second yellow of the match. He was seen to push Abdelkader Keita, to the ground, but it was the exaggeration of the impact that has caused Facebook and Twitter users to get angry.

Keita grabbed his face in anger, even though he was hit in the chest. We are uncertain why the ref sent Kaka off – especially as he did not even see the altercation.

Some of the comments on Twitter says it all, with many asking if FIFA will revoke the red card decision – although we are not certain that they can. What did you think of Kaka’s sending off?
