Liga MX ace facing the axe for drug-themed party

Liga MX ace facing contract termination after drug-themed birthday...for his son!

January 9, 2023 By Oscar Rojas
Cruz Azul defender Julio César Domínguez has been slammed on social media for his tasteless choice to celebrate his son's birthday with articles related to a drug cartel.

Something we have learned over the years is that footballers seem to be detached from reality, with habits such as buying expensive cars and showing them off on social media being relatively usual everywhere in the world. Nevertheless, this last story shows a lack of touch but also a lack of empathy for a major problem for Mexican society, and all of it came courtesy of a Mexican player.

A couple of days ago, social media outlets were flooded with pics for the birthday celebration of Julio César Domínguez's son. The Cruz Azul player has been widely criticized for his performances on the pitch, but fans found one more reason to slam the player, as he decided to celebrate his kid's birthday by handing out hats and other gadgets that could be related to the infamous Sinaloa Cartel, owned and operated by Joaquín "Chapo" Guzmán and his offspring.

Domínguez's guests were treated with hats showing the acronym "JGL", which are the initials of the notable drug kingping (Joaquín Guzmán Loera). Not only that, but kids invited to the celebration were also handed toy guns to play around during the evening.

The player's lack of touch had him publishing some pictures on social media, which were later erased.

The player even had the nerve to publish a picture of his son wearing a full kit related to the infamous drug kingpin.

These pictures were met with outrage by fans and experts, especially after the events that took place last week in Mexico, where Chapo Guzman's son was arrested by Mexican authorities for his alleged illegal activities.

This detention sparked violence in the state of Sinaloa, sending the entire state's population into a 24-hour lockdown and even forcing the games featuring teams from that state (Mazatlán FC and Dorados de Sinaloa) to postpone their games for this past weekend.

Now, Domínguez will seemingly have to pay for his actions, as Liga MX's Code of Ethics urges players to "maintain neutrality on political issues and avoid actions that cause violence among fans." While there is no mention of drug related issues, it is understood that something that has caused many problems in this country over the years has to be included whe you speak about violence among fans.

The league's code states that Domínguez could be fired from his club, fined by the league, or even forced to fulfill community service. To make matters worse, some of the player's teammates also attended the party wearing Cruz Azul clothes, which would also force the league to sanction them even if they did not host the event.

The player has already issued an apology on social media, but it seems that this time the footballer will not go unpunished for his lack of taste with a sensible issue for Mexican audiences.
