María Isabel Rodríguez, better known as Misa, Real Madrid goalkeeper, lived a few crazy days, which can clearly be reconstructed just by reviewing her social networks. Today he has reappeared in his to give thanks after becoming a protagonist first for having received insults through Twitter and then for the worldwide support he received after having suffered a cyberbullying attack.
For this, Misa was grateful. “Thank you from the heart,” she posted on the same social network where she was attacked and later supported.

But what happened? Misa published the night of Madrid-Liverpool a tweet in which he wrote “the same passion”, a message that accompanied an image of him and another of Asensio grabbing the shield shirt. Happy for the Madrid victory against Liverpool, the player picked up one of Asensio’s celebratory photos after the goal, but had to delete the message hours later due to the regrettable insults and macho comments she received.
Asensio’s response was swift and he was the first to come out in his support by publishing on his networks an identical montage to the one that Misa did and writing: “The same passion, that nothing or nobody prevents you from saying what you think.

Asensio’s tweet had a spectacular impact on the networks and many people joined the initiative of the Balearic footballer. First it was Granero hanging an image of him as a Madridista and then Marcelo and Vinícius joined.

And behind it was a cataract of Real Madrid players supporting their teammate … Lucas Vázquez, Casemiro, Raphael Varane, the Uruguayan Fede Valverde and the signatures followed
We must do more to fight against racism, sexism, homophobia and all forms of discrimination. They have no place in football or in society.

Support also transcended the borders of the White House. This is how Tottenham’s posts appeared, he joined this movement with the Spanish Reguilón and Lucy Quinn and little by little all the First clubs were added, with Barcelona in the lead, who uploaded a tweet with the images of Messi and Mariona. And the same Spanish team. And Real Sociedad, Levante, Osasuna, Leganés, among many others, also shared the passion for their footballers. By all, without exception; by the men and women who make up their men’s and women’s teams.
SAME PASSION 🇪🇸

Also other athletes such as Paul Gasol did not miss the opportunity to support the initiative. And government authorities: “I do it too,” added the Minister of Culture and Sports, José Manuel Rodríguez Uribes.

And obviously it also transcended in our continents, our clubs and our players are not alien to injustices.

In short, a new battle won against machismo, misogyny and discrimination. And this time it was by a landslide.
