The Real Madrid forward thought he would pamper his 79.7 million Instagram followers with this image of himself who might be trying to get in touch with his spiritual side.
Unfortunately, it has given massive backlash as many people have left comments calling his posture offensive to rest his foot on the religious symbol.
“Hi guy, but its basic knowledge that you can not put your foot on a religious statue,” said one commentator.
Others reacted more angrily, demanding that he take the picture down, but it is still there after six hours.
