After paying a hefty fine and accepting a tax fraud, Cristiano Ronaldo is in the news again. Earlier today the Juventus forward shared an in-flight selfie on social media accounts. Little did he know that his picture would invite severe backlash from the netizens as the post coincided with the tragic news of Emiliano Sala’s aircraft goes missing and is believed to have died in a plane crash after a light aircraft disappeared en route to the Welsh capital over Channel Island. Emiliano Sala, Cardiff City Footballer, on Board Missing Flight, Feared Dead.
Ronaldo clicked a selfie in a private jet and got slammed as the netizens believed that it was insensitive of CR7 to ignore the news of the plane crash. Cardiff had signed the Sala for the fee of 15 million GBP. While the investigations are on, the netizens responded to CR7’s picture by trolling it brutally. Check out CR7’s post below.

The search operation of Sala will continue as he reportedly sent a few audio recording to his friend. "I'm on a plane that looks like it's going to fall apart, and I'm leaving for Cardiff," Sala said in a WhatsApp audio message carried by Argentine media. "If in an hour and a half you have no news from me, I don't know if they will send people to look for me, because they will not find me, you know. Dad, I'm so scared," he added.
