Javier "Chicharito" Hernández is facing some serious backlash after it was revealed that he could possibly be dating Camila Sodi. The soccer star posted a photo on Valentine's Day that shows the Eiffel Tower in the background and a romantic-lit room with a table of wine and food. The intimate setting seems to be he's celebrating the day of love with his significant other and people are not having it at all.

Fans of the striker are calling him out for the way that things went down with Lucía Villalón, his fiancée up until a few weeks ago. They think that it's too soon for him to be out dating and flaunting his new relationship as Villalón has reportedly had a rough time accepting the breakup. 

"You're a dog," one user wrote on Instagram. "Well the poor dogs are not at fault, they have no comparison with you. What you did has no forgiveness, I hope they do the same thing to you."

Another user said: "You are a turd. You pay for everything in this life. One day you will be cheated on. You deserve less respect than poop, which is what you are."

On Twitter: "Don't be an idiot Chicharito, have some shame, be more like a gentleman and pay some respect to your ex."

"This is horrible, your ex is suffering for you and you are showing off another woman. Poor Lucía and you both looked so in love."

But not all of the messages were negative. Some people do support Chicharito's reported new relationship.

It was reported weeks ago that Javier "Chicharito" Hernández and Lucia Villalón had split and are no longer engaged. Spanish media first reported that the couple have broken up and had cancelled their wedding. The pair had recently updated their Twitter profiles and neither have the "1422" that symbolized their relationship. A screenshot of Villalón's had the number at the end of her bio, but it is no longer there. The couple still follow each other on the social network and they both have photos together on their Instagram accounts.

What was the reason behind calling it quits? Initial reports pointed to their distance. Hernández and Villalón met when the Mexican striker was at Real Madrid in Spain, where she is from. When Chicharito moved to Bayer Leverkusen in Germany, it took a hit on them. Lucía is now allegedly back in her home country as she is affected by the break up. The "1422" that symbolized their union were there lucky numbers. For Chicharito, "14" is the number he uses on the field and for Lucía, "22" is a lucky number that she even has tattooed on herself. Neither camp has broken their silence on the rumors.
