Dani Alves on the cover of Veja.

Daniel Alves on the cover of Brazilian magazine Veja, giving what is known in Brazil as a “banana” sign (which basically means: fuck off), and wearing a banana lapel pin. Loosely translated, the text on the cover reads: “Daniel Alves, from the Brazilian national squad and Barcelona, ate the banana, the racists from stadium slipped on the banana peel, and prejudice ended up with egg on its face, perhaps forever.” A campaign started by the Brazilian players that took off trending on twitter saw many of them pose with bananas and hashtags reading #somostodosmacacos or “we are all monkeys.”
