A FOOTBALL fan has been hammered for recklessly swinging his young son around by his ankles after his team scored a goal.
Footage from Brazil has emerged online of the Flamengo supporter’s over-the-top reaction to their Copa Libertadores win over Gremio.
As Gabigol celebrates his penalty to make it 3-0 at the Maracana, the man is seen violently shaking a child who he is dangling upside down.
Laughter can be heard in the background for the few seconds as he swings the child, reported by local media to be his son, before a woman collects the shaken kid.
The supporter, who is yet to be named, then leans in to his television screen and gesticulates to his crotch while shouting at the pictures.
Over 1.1million people have already witnessed the shocking video.
Viewers online were quick to condemn the man’s disturbing actions.
One simply defined him as a: “Piece of s**t.”
Another said: “I do not know what bothers me more, that this guy shakes the boy like that, or that the girl, who I am assuming is the kid’s mother, is laughing.”
While another wrote: “This is serious, he could have caused the child a serious injury!”
And a fellow concerned viewer added: “He almost killed him.”
Flamengo’s 6-1 aggregate win on Thursday night sends them into the Copa Libertadores final versus Argentine giants River Plate.
