As protests continue in Cuba over the oppressive communist regime in the nation, UFC star Jorge Masvidal has taken to social media to speak his mind. On Twitter, he posted a video in which he describes the country as a “killing machine.”
“My father escaped Cuba when he was 14 years old,” Masvidal began. “And I’ve only heard the horror stories since I could process thoughts of how s— this communist regime, killing machine is. So I just want to shed some light on Cuba — big SOS signal for them.”
Masvidal proceeded to let his fans know just how bad things in Cuba really are.
“This oppression has been going on for 61 years,” he continued. “It’s not just because of the pandemic, or it’s not just because they ran out of medicine, because they’ve been out of medicine, they’ve been out of resources and food.”
On his Instagram story, he took aim at a former NFL star QB. The UFC star posted pictures of Colin Kaepernick rocking a shirt with Castro on it a few years ago and sent him a stern message.
“Know ur history and facts..cowards like this fool should be sent to live in Cuba…see what they say after a day there.”
It was just a few days after Castro’s death when Kaepernick rocked a shirt with his image on it. He was booed heavily by the Miami Dolphins. Afterward, he was asked about a back-and-forth he had with a reporter on Friday, in which he said he supported Castro’s focus on education.
“What I said was I agree in the investment in education. I also agree in the investment of free universal healthcare,” Castro told reporters. “Trying to push the narrative that I was supportive of the oppressive things he did is not true.”
