League (ADL) has condemned a series of Nazi and Holocaust references
flooding social media in response to Germany’s 7-1 victory over Brazil
in the World Cup
semifinals, calling the phenomenon "insulting to the German team and demeaning to Holocaust survivors and victims."
According to news
reports, on July 7 some 14,000 tweets referring to the match included
the word "Nazi" or "Nazis." That number quadrupled on the day of the
game to more than 95,000 "Nazi" references.
