Shakira Defended By Fans After Sexist Banners Target Her Before Soccer Match!

After a seemingly sexist banner targeting Shakira was seen ahead of a soccer match, the hashtag #RespectShakira began to trend. That being said, it looks like fans were quick to stand up for the star!

One of the banners reads ‘Shakira a La Jonquera,’ as per the images shared online.

With that being said, according to a 2012 article from The New York Times, La Jonquera is situated on the French-Spanish border and has one of Europe’s biggest brothels so naturally, fans did not appreciate the insinuation.

The sign was reportedly held by a group of Paris Saint-Germain supporters, according to The Sun.

On March 10, the team will compete in the UEFA Championship League against Barcelona’s team, for which her partner, Gerard Piqué, plays!

Still, the man is not expected to be part of the upcoming Wednesday match since he has a knee injury.

This isn’t even the first time that Shakira gets targeted by sports fans because of her longtime involvement with the soccer player.

It’s also happened back in 2012, when a naked blow-up doll with ‘Shakira’ written on its back was carried around after Real Madrid won the Spanish league title.

Similar banners to the ones carried this year were also seen at a 2016 game.

As mentioned before, fans were not happy and they stood up for her on social media.


Check out some of their reactions: ‘It’s 2021 and they still get away with disgustingly sexist comments made on banners, sexist chants aimed at her etc…It’s a regular occurrence that’s gone on for years.’ / ‘She doesn’t deserve it as does no woman. We shouldn’t stand by and accept her being degraded. #RespectShakira.’ / ‘Time and again we are seeing instances of hardworking women being insulted or slut-shamed, be it in music industry or, in this instance, the soccer world. It’s time we raise our voices and denounce such misogyny. #RespectShakira #WomensHistoryMonth.’
