LOS ANGELES (AP) — It was bad enough that Mick Jagger was blamed for supporting teams in the World Cup that ended up losing. Now he’s being blamed for a loss merely because he showed up to a game.

Billboard reports Brazil fans are pinning their frustrations over a 7-to-1 loss to Germany on Jagger because he watched Tuesday’s game from a VIP box.

Jagger was wearing an England cap, not anything Brazilian.

Some Brazilian fans have made cardboard cutouts of Jagger wearing the opposing team’s shirts, and other have nicknamed him “the jinx.”

Jagger supports England but that team was knocked out by Uruguay. He said Italy would defeat Uruguay, but that was incorrect. He predicted Portugal would win it all.
