Why is Verstappen’s girlfriend Kelly Piquet being attacked online?

The Red Bull Formula 1 world champion defended his girlfriend in response to her Instagram post that drew attention to the abuse she was receiving, asking that common sense prevail. The couple has been in a relationship since 2021.

What caused so much hatred and trolling of Kelly to become so ugly and spread widely on social media?

According to Pink Villa, Kelly Piquet has often been at the center of controversy within the F1 community. Most recently, the ex-wife of former Formula 1 driver Jerome D’Ambrosio accused her of trying to end his marriage.

“Previously, she was also accused of ending Verstappen’s previous relationship and betraying her former partner, the father of her daughter Penelope, former F1 driver Daniil Kvyat. These allegations fueled online hatred, prompting Piquet to publicly defend himself and clarify the truth,” the report said.

In response to Kelly’s post, Verstappen, 26, wrote: “This has to stop. These false accusations from some people on Instagram and TikTok are crazy and ridiculous at the same time. Hate has no place in this world. We know what is true in our family and we are very happy together. I love you. »

This happened after Kelly, daughter of Formula 1 world champion Nelson Piquet, wrote to her 1.5 million followers on Instagram:

Transcription of Ms. Piquet’s note: “A message from me and a kind reminder to everyone… The online world can be a wonderful place for many reasons, but it can also be very scary when misinformation and lies are spread .

“For over three years, I have been faced with a very strange and disturbing wave of accusations, rumors, fabricated situations, false testimonies, altered screenshots… you choose. Throughout all of this, I remained silent and did not participate in these ridiculous allegations.

“The accusations made in recent months, in particular, have reached a new level of defamation. Those who know me understand that I would never put myself in such situations, say certain things or act in such a way. I am far from perfect, but I am proud of my values, my morals and my manners.

“Let me be clear, as a human being, comments and hatred deeply affect me and those around me. I hope this serves as a reminder to people to check content online before making threats. Remember, as James Clear says, ‘every action we take is a vote for who we want to be’. Let’s choose to be better human beings for ourselves and for others,” concluded Kelly Piquet’s post.

The main respondent was Verstappen. This raised doubts in the post’s comments whether the post was actually written by the World Champion, given the extent of the misinformation and erroneous suspicion.

Last year we reported that Formula 1’s governing body, the FIA, stepped up its promised efforts to combat the widespread problem of online abuse, introducing a site to further promote the cause.

The emergence of social media has reached a point where hatred, racism and abuse, perpetrated by cyberstalkers and provocateurs, have reached unprecedented levels online. Unfortunately, different platforms are reluctant to eradicate this threat due to the complex algorithms that dictate news flow around the world.

If anyone can do so, it’s easy to get rid of any offense or abuse if they have significant consequences, it’s obvious that you’re going to take advantage of the finance that reigns supreme in the world online. Consequently, block these infratores results in a substantial loss of trade and receipt. Portanto, é razoável supor que as tícias, incluindo esports e Formula 1, estão manchadas par ocultas diaries.

With this launch in mind, Mohammed Ben Sulayem, president of the FIA, declared war against online abuse, affirming or compromising the inability of the organization to maintain a sporting atmosphere that is supportive and respectful for all things as well.
