Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen threatens to sue Napoli for posting video mocking his penalty miss

In a recent incident, Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has expressed his intention to take legal action against Napoli over a TikTok video that was shared on the club’s official page. The video seemed to mock Osimhen for missing a penalty during Napoli’s 0-0 draw with Bologna in Serie A over the weekend.

The clip was met with significant criticism and backlash on various social media platforms, prompting Napoli to remove the video in response to the uproar. However, the damage was done, and Osimhen, evidently displeased with the video’s content and the implications it bore, has made it clear that he intends to pursue legal action against the club.

This incident highlights the broader issue of respecting the dignity and privacy of athletes, even in the realm of social media. The power and influence of social platforms necessitate responsible use, especially by sports organizations, to avoid offending or demeaning individuals and players associated with their brand. Legal action taken by Osimhen underscores the seriousness of the matter and the need for accountability and responsible behavior, even in the digital space.
