“1) A message to Iran, where I have friends who are in pain and where women are not respected… THE WORLD NEEDS TO CHANGE. We can all do it together, with strong gestures that come from the heart, and WITH COURAGE.

“2) FIFA banned rainbow captains bands and human rights flags from the stands. They blocked everyone. But not me, I brought the message from the PEOPLE like Robinhood 2.0. We want a world that laughs and embraces all races and all ideas.

“3) SAVE THE UKRAINE. As a volunteer, I spent one month in Kyiv at the war and witnessed how many people were suffering. We WANT PEACE UKIN UKRAINE, GLORY to UKRAINE. Thank you for all of the love messages that I get from around the globe, including from Iran and Ukraine. If you are helping a good cause, breaking the rules is not a crime.
