F1 2021 He told Stroll by radio in Portugal
Chen Max Verstappen called Lance Stroll a “Mongolian” during the 2020 Portuguese Grand Prix, an association called Mongol Identity, which decides to defend Mongolia, started a series of protests that have already had their effect.
Three words have been removed from the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary after a successful campaign by Mongol Identity, a Mongolian advocacy group that vociferously criticized and campaigned against Max Verstappen after he called Lance Stroll a “Mongolian” last year. So much so that the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary has agreed to delete the words ‘Mongolian’, ‘Mongoloid’ and ‘Mongolian’ as a synonym for disabled or suffering from Down syndrome.
“Having reviewed the evidence for the words ‘Mongolian’, ‘Mongoloid’ and ‘Mongolism’, we have decided to remove these terms from the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary. The terms are no longer used much and therefore not useful to students. of English “, has declared the publisher of mentioned dictionary of public form.
It is not the first time that Verstappen has launched very serious insults at his rivals, although he is not the only time, during a hot moment in a race, something that even he could not suppose would lead to consequences such as those that have occurred. The Dutchman pronounced the word in the sense of ‘stupid’, something that Mongolia tried to nip in the bud immediately.
“I have damage, what a Mongolian, I swear!” Was the expression of the Red Bull driver on the radio, in Free 1 of the Portuguese Grand Prix in Portimao, addressed to Lance Stroll. The conflict between the pilots was resolved, as they spoke to each other and assumed that both could have done something to avoid the crash.
From Mongol Indentity they publicly demanded an apology from Verstappen, “These things happen at the moment, I never wanted to say those words,” Max said in the Dutch newspaper ‘De Telegraaf’, although he did not want to do so at a press conference before the cameras. “It’s not my problem. Today we live in a world where there are overly sensitive people,” he added.
