Cristiano Ronaldo fails on Chinese social media

Updated: Jun 4, 2019

Cristiano Ronaldo is rather famous on Tencent Weibo, China’s version of Twitter. The star has more than 11.4 million followers, but lately he’s been posting some very strange content, causing his fan base to wonder, what is going on?

The #2 most followed soccer player on Tencent Weibo used to post mostly about – big surprise – football or the CR7 brand. He was not exactly the most active user, but everything was entirely “normal” until May of 2014, when he shared a Nike video. After that, there was a long silent period before the account became flooded with propaganda revolving around tourism in Portugal.

You can suddenly see this kind of content:


Or this:


There are 2 possibilities here: either Cristiano is being paid for an agency to post this or his account got hacked. In my opinion, the second possibility sounds more likely, considering his account was abandoned for months before the weirdness began. It’s also odd when compared to the content he shares on Twitter every day.

Let’s just hope that someone will clarify this situation soon enough.
