Following the initial complaint here, the highlighted player in the blue uniform continues to complain to the referee, doing so well after his immediate reaction, and he continues until a technical foul is called.

Note that players can react to calls with which they disagree, provided the reaction is not overly demonstrative, disrespectful, or prolonged.
