This past Saturday night, Chivas de Guadalajara midfielder Marco Fabian– the guy who scored an overhead kick against Barcelona– had a hat trick in his team 5-2 win against Estudiantes in their week 13 matchup. Impressive stuff for sure, but that’s not why the media is talking about Fabian. No, the source of the sports pundits’ cacophony is what the Goats player did after his first goal.
Watch below as Fabian pretends to execute his teammate Alberto Medina:
Simply wow. Maybe next time, Fabian can mime sawing someone’s head off.
Following the match, the team immediately put out a press release condemning Fabian’s actions and promising appropriate punishment. From their press release:
Players who participated in this celebrations will be held accountable by the institution because they are an example to all the children and youth of our country, as well as the more than 30 million fans who are proud Chivas.
You gotta love the ambiguity of the release.
It’s difficult for me to play the moral police because, quite frankly, who am I to be the arbiter of right or wrong? But, come on. If you live in a country where there’s pandemic drug-related violence, why would anyone do that on national television? It’s idiotic for sure, but it’s also disrespectful to the thousands of people who have lost their lives because of the drug trade.
Also, I grew up as a lifelong fan of Club America, their longtime bitter rivals, so f*ck that guy.
