Seven people were fined for racist chanting and an effigy of a Real Madrid player, according to Vinicius Jr.

For their racist behavior toward Brazilian player Vinicius Jr. of Real Madrid, seven people have received punishment.

In January, four men were punished for hanging an effigy of Vinicius next to Real’s practice facility by being fined 60001 euros (£51,700) and being banned from stadiums for two years.

A court in Madrid granted bail to the four guys after their detention 11 days prior.

Three other individuals were punished with 5,000 euros ($4,300) in fines and a one-year ban for making racial gestures on May 21 while Real Madrid was playing Valencia.

The three were arrested two days after the game and are between the ages of 18 and 21, according to the police.

The country’s Sports Commission announced the fines on Monday. They were handed down by Spain’s State Commission against Violence, Racism, Xenophobia, and Intolerance in Sport.

On appeal, Valencia’s racial penalties and stadium closure were lowered.
Vinicius later claimed that the Spanish league “belongs to racists” after his red card for violent behavior late in the Valencia game was overturned.

After telling Vinicius on social media that “you need to inform yourself properly,” La Liga president Javier Tebas and the league’s handling of the situation came under heavy fire.

Later, Tebas expressed regret to Vinicius and claimed he had not intended to “attack” the 22-year-old.

The Brazilian government demanded harsh punishment for anyone who used racial slurs, and La Liga declared it would look for “more sanctioning powers” to ensure it could deal with such events.

On June 17 and 20, Brazil will play friendlies against Guinea and Senegal in Lisbon as part of a campaign against racism.
