Fans blame Cristiano Ronaldo for posting a photo with controversial figure Jordan Peterson


Cristiano Ronaldo is once again in the spotlight for his latest social media activity. The Manchester United ace has used Instagram to share his first post since he mourned the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

Ronaldo posted a photo with controversial psychologist Jordan Peterson and called his “friend” on Instagram. Peterson has been widely vilified on social media for some of his divisive views.

He has strong views on masculinity and the 60-year-old has previously described himself as an “professor against political correctness.”

The post has racked up more than 5 million likes in just 24 hours, and fans made their feelings clear in the comments. While one user wrote, “Most unexpected collaboration,” another noted that Ronaldo “tarnished his legacy” by meeting Peterson.
