Nusret Gökçe, known as Salt Bae, went to the soccer pitch, hounding for social media likes, wanting to take a picture with Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria, and Lisandro Martinez. He even broke the official FIFA rule by holding and kissing the 18-carat gold World Cup trophy. FIFA has confirmed that they were going to take action for those who gained access to the pitch as the winners were presented with the trophy and their medals.

In Breach of FIFA Rules

Journalist Tariq Panja tweeted that the “meat guy” gatecrashed the whole celebration. Panja shared in a statement that FIFA had been establishing how people gained access to the soccer pitch after the ceremony at Lusail Stadium on the 18th of December. Salt Bae came under fire after he attempted to grab Argentinian captain Lionel Messi, who seemed to be trying to ignore him.
