Neymar's sister Rafaella Beckram

Why Barcelona fans harassed Neymar’s sister Rafaella Beckram after Juventus

Barcelona fans v Rafaella Beckram

Eagle-eyed social media followers have been quick to notice that Neymar’s sister, Rafaella Beckram, has made a significant change to her Instagram account.

Followed by 2.8 million fans, Rafaella Beckram last night changed her social media settings to silence engagements.

That move was reportedly provoked by online hatred following Barcelona’s 3-0 defeat to Juventus in the Champions League last night.

So what happened?

For Neymar, it was a difficult evening in Turin.

The Brazilian star has no answer to break through the Bianconeri’s backline, as Max Allegri’s brilliant defence stopped everything the Catalans threw at them.

That lead to plenty of negative comments towards Neymar after the full time whistle.

But the hatred wasn’t simply reserved for the Barca star. It also spilled over to his sister after she posted several happy photos wearing a black and white styled top after the Juventus match ended.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona fans jumped on Rafaella Beckram’s updates to launch a torrent on abuse in the comments.

Those comments have now been switched off.
