But what caused the outrage of the blue fanatic? While one of the journalists of the channel announced the probable formation of the ‘U’ for the duel on Wednesday against Santiago Wanderers, a shadowed and predefined image where the photo of Junior Fernandes should have gone generated the questioned ‘joke’.
“It looks the same in the photo Junior”De Tezanos said with a laugh, causing laughter from some panelists and gestures of surprise from others.
After the obsolete ‘joke’, the journalist continued with a questioning of the production of the program and expressed: “How can we not take a picture of Junior? He has played 500 times for the National Team “.
However, despite the uncomfortable moment lived among the panelists, De Tezanos continued in the same line and He joked again, alluding to the skin color of both Fernandes and the journalist Jorge Cubillos. “Is it you or Junior in the photo?”

@ Basaure360 He didn’t laugh. It’s all that is right. He knows football and has much more judgment than several of his co-workers. He’s a much better communicator. My respects to him. This episode is reportable to the CNTV. https://t.co/CgjyWFBZjO
