#3 The Consequences After the Video was Leaked.
Once the video was leaked on the internet, the public caught on to the controversial tone of the players quite quickly. Barcelona’s main sponsor at the moment, Rakuten, a Japanese E-Commerce company, has spoken out about the situation and their CEO, Hiroshi Mikitani, has stated that he will publicly protest against the club if they do not take strict actions against the two players in the video.
Meanwhile, one of Griezmann’s sponsors, Konami, has announced that they will be cutting ties with the player. Konami is a Japanese company and Griezmann was Yu-Gi-Oh! Product’s main ambassador. However, after the video, the company stated that they have dropped the player from their contract. Dembele is yet to face any severe consequences from the video.
