Mick Jagger Blamed For Brazil's 7-1 Loss In The World Cup
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.10.2014



NME reports that a Brazilian TV station has called Mick Jagger a jink and blamed him for Brazil's 7-1 World cup semi-final defeat by Germany on Tuesday.

Brazil fans have been dressing cut-outs of The Rolling Stones in the colors of Chile and Colombia before their wins over those countries. Brazilian TV station R7 said he was "the biggest jinx in history" and Brazil fans have called him "The Angel of Doom". It's the biggest loss for Brazil and the biggest loss in a semi-final in the entire 84-year history of the World Cup.

Jagger has been endorsing losing teams since 2010, a total of six games. In 2010 in South Africa, Jagger watched England lose 4-1 to Germany. He went with Bill Clinton to see the USA lose 2-1 to Ghana in that same round. He wore a Brazil shirt during their 2-1 loss to the Netherlands in the quarter-final. In the current World Cup, he tweeted the England team "good luck" before they lost 2-1 to Italy. He announced during a Rolling Stones show in Lisbon that Portugal would win the tournament and they couldn't get to the second round. Italy lost to Uruguay 1-0 after Jagger said they would win during a show in Rome.

Thy game that Brazil happened to lose had Jagger and his 15-year-old Brazilian son Lucas in attendance. Jagger wore an England baseball cap. Fans had a cut-out of Jagger in Germany colors with a speech bubble that said "Let's go Germany" outside the stadium. Lucas' mother, Brazilian model Luciana Giminez, said: "He's suffering cyber-bullying, and I'd ask people to think before doing it. He's been successful for 50 years and is a good friend and father to my son."
