Worker sacked after taking photograph of Maradona's corpse
A funeral worker who was involved in Maradona's wake, took a selfie of himself with Diego's corpse and as a result was immediately sacked.
Diego Armando Maradona's coffin was on display at the Casa Rosada so that thousands of Argentine fans could pay their final respects to the football legend. But even in death there were problems for the former player and coach. A photograph of his corpse was leaked and caused great commotion in Argentina - especially among Maradona's family and closest friends.
Matías Morla, Diego's lawyer who had already raised questions about the true cause of death, took to social media to express his anger at the leaked photo - a selfie, which he and many others consider insensitive and a total lack of respect. "For the memory of my friend, I will be rest until the perpetrator of this aberration is made to pay," Morla wrote.
Ante la viralización de una imagen de Diego en su lecho de muerte, me voy a ocupar personalmente de encontrar al canalla que tomo esa fotografía. Van a pagar todos los responsables de semejante acto de cobardía.— MATIAS MORLA (@MatiasMorlaAb) November 26, 2020
The funeral service worker who took and released the image, according to some reports a man named Diego Molina, was instantly dismissed from their job and the problems haven't stopped there. Furious fans have take to social media calling for justice to be served in response to such an act of bad taste with the worker receiving death threats.
