Is This Disrespect To Buddhists Everywhere???
Reader, Buddhists slam Cristiano Ronaldo on social media after he posts ‘disrespectful’ photo of himself placing a leg on Buddha statue. Disrespect is defined as a lack of respect or courtesy for another person, and it can take many forms. Whether intentional or unintentional, communicated through words or gestures, or done in secret or openly, disrespect can take various forms.
Anyhow, on Thursday, the soccer superstar incurred the wrath of Buddhists on social media after the Real Madrid star posed in an Instagram photo with his foot resting at the base of a Buddha statue. In the photo, also posted on his Facebook feed, the player's famous right foot is placed on top of the surrounding small wall of the statue, which is in the form of the head of the father of Buddhism.
Question: Is this a form of disrespect?
