We exhibit difficulties of different sorts which appear when using the Mathisson-Papapetrou equations, in particular in the description of highly relativistic particles presented in R. Plyatsko and M. Fenyk [Phys. Rev. D 91, 064033 (2015)PRVDAQ1550-799810.1103/PhysRevD.91.064033]. We compare some results of this theory and of the aforementioned work with the ones obtained using a Lagrangian formulation for massive spinning particles and show that the issues mentioned in the preceding sentence do not appear in the Lagrangian treatment.
