One of the most famous bullfighters in Spain is in hot water because he posted a photograph of himself fighting a bull… while holding his infant daughter.
Francisco “Fran” Rivera Ordóñez was actually in the hospital recovering from a serious injury from a bull when his wife gave birth to his daughter Carmen in August of last year.
Fast forward five months, and the guy posted a photo of a training session in which he clutched his baby daughter in his arms while practicing cape work with a bull calf.
He titled the picture, “Carmen’s debut.” How cute.
Except… you know… bulls are dangerous? Which, “Fran” should know because he was recently in the hospital because his guts were sliced open by a bull.
Not only that, but Fran’s father, Paquirri, was also a bullfighter – who happened to be gored to death during a bullfight in 1984 at the age of 36.
Quite a family tradition. A totally stupid tradition.
