This ceremony takes place after many artists choose to back out from it. The reason behind this is the issue of Human rights violations in the country. Artists like Shakira and Dua Lipa are among those names. Meanwhile, fans on Twitter love the anthem by BTS member titled, ‘Dreamers.’

Twitter fans are comparing this song with the famous Waka-Waka by Shakira, and few say it tops that. BTS is one of the most prominent K-pop groups and has the biggest fan following worldwide. Clearly, this song would have one of the best-ever receptions for any soccer anthem.

FIFA WC 2022 is “different”

This World Cup is different and has been questioned by the fans from the beginning, whether it is human rights violations, the LGBTQ+ community protest, or various other issues. Recently, a security team in Doha was caught on camera trying to stop a journalist from covering a report. They also threaten him, saying they’ll break the camera. 

After that debacle, FIFA suddenly shocked the world by banning the sale of beer inside or in nearby stadium areas. This move came after they had talks with Qatar’s supreme committee, and people were furious. Officials welcomed all the tourists to visit and enjoy the WC, and they were promised that they would be able to have a beer in the stadiums.

Frustrated fans aside, this put a mark on the moral standards of FIFA, and fans bashed them out on Twitter. FIFA had a great couple of days. They did something goofy after a day of dropping a beer bombshell.

FIFA president gave an hour-long monologue that contained the sentence, “Today, I have strong feelings. Today I feel Qatari. I feel Arab; I feel African; I feel gay, I feel disabled, I feel a migrant worker. Of course, I am not Qatari; I am not an Arab, I am not African, I am not gay, I am not disabled. But I feel like it because I know what it means to be discriminated against, to be bullied, as a foreigner in a foreign country.” Let’s hope they can host this event better than they have been handling the past few days.
