Cristiano Ronaldo has been criticized after the Manchester United attacker posted a photo of himself with right-wing psychologist Jordan Peterson on Instagram.

Peterson has become divisive in recent years due to his controversial views on transgender people, Covid-19 vaccinations and masculinity.

In 2017, Peterson was suspended from Twitter after he insulted and misnamed actor Elliot Page.

He tweeted, “Remember when pride was a sin? And [Elliot Page] just had [his] breasts removed by a criminal doctor.’

Peterson received a response for his comments about Page, who emerged as transgender three years later.

Peterson also caused a stir last year when he claimed “you’d have to kill me first” to get him a Covid-19 vaccination booster.

The psychologist has confirmed that he has been vaccinated against Covid-19, but he made this comment after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called on people to give themselves a boost as infection rates rose in the country last December.

During his rise to fame, Peterson has described himself as a “professor against political correctness,” and he was particularly outspoken about masculinity.

The 60-year-old has previously stated that the “male mind is under attack” and claimed that “the idea that women have been oppressed throughout history is a horrific theory.”

These views don’t seem to bother Ronaldo, however, as the Portuguese footballer posed for a photo with Peterson on Saturday.

With his arm around Peterson’s shoulder, Ronaldo captioned the photo: ‘Nice to see you, my friend! #bye

A number of supporters are disappointed with Ronaldo’s decision to have their picture taken with Peterson.

“This is where his legacy is really being tarnished,” one supporter wrote on Twitter.

“Why is anyone even a little surprised that someone with such a right as he thinks Peterson is great?” asked another fan.
