German ex-tennis professional Boris Becker joined a #BlackLivesMatters demo in London where he lives. His participation in the anti-racism demonstration was mainly seen positively by many news media like CNN and Daily Mail. But some social media users reacted critically. Looking at the comments under the video which Becker shared on social media, it seems that mainly his Germans followers have responded in a less positive way to his participation in the demo.
Becker reacted with a tweet stating “Why, why, why? Have we become a country of racists…?” He also added “…apparently many people in Germany still haven’t understood that it’s my family history!”.
