  1. Wait why do they say hes a monkey? Is it because of the way he plays, looks, or his race?? But i remember actually seeing this photo but i had no idea of why there was a banana thrown.

  2. I found that part of the match hilarious, because we didnt expect that sort of reaction. It was a small action with a great message.
