TV Station in Argentina Mocks Neymar Injury with Crude Impersonator

Will Tidey@willtideySenior Manager, GlobalJuly 8, 2014

A TV show in Argentina has mocked Brazil star Neymar, making fun of his back injury to tempt the wrath of millions of World Cup fans in the host nation.

As per Yahoo, the comedy series Showmatch brought out a Neymar impersonator with a fake leg stuck to his back.

The leg was wearing Chilean socks, thus representing Juan Zuniga's tackle on Neymar, who fractured a vertebrae that ruled the 22-year-old out of the World Cup.

Did Showmatch go too far? Or were they entitled to mock Neymar's plight for comedic value?
