Mascot suspended in Brazil for obscene gestures

A team’s mascot has been suspended for two home matches for

making obscene gestures to opposition fans.

Ceara’s ”Grandpa” mascot was suspended Tuesday after making

the gestures to fans from Ferroviario in a match on Sunday.

Local media reports that Ceara is also expected to punish the

person who was inside the mascot costume.

Ceara was relegated from the Brazilian first division last year

but is one of the most famous clubs in northeastern Brazil.
