You can’t make this shit up:
Jair Bolsonaro asks Brazilians not to deal with Covid-19 ‘like fags’
President Jair Bolsonaro drew criticism Tuesday for telling Brazilians not to deal with Covid-19 like “a country of fags,” the far-right leader’s latest controversial outburst on the pandemic.
“All anyone talks about these days is the pandemic. We need to stop that,” said Bolsonaro during the speech, which was ostensibly on tourism.
“I regret the deaths. I really do. But we’re all going to die someday. There’s no use fleeing reality. We have to stop being a country of fags…. We have to face up to it and fight. I hate this faggot stuff.”
It was the latest in a long list of controversial statements on the pandemic from Bolsonaro, who has condemned the “hysteria” around Covid-19, compared the new coronavirus to a “little flu” and asserted that Brazilians’ immune systems were so strong they could swim in raw sewage and “not catch a thing.”
The balls on this man are reaching planetary-size levels.
But hey, he’s not wrong.
