The candidate for reelection to the city of Rio de Janeiro, Marcelo Crivella (Republicans), called the governor of São Paulo, João Dória (PSDB), “vagabundo” and used the homophobic term “fag” to refer to him. The insults are in a video that went viral this Thursday (19). The mayor was talking about health OS (Social Organizations).
“I went to court against these tramps. Do you know what they did? I gave money to pay the employees, they took and paid the supplier, who had to pay on December 10th. And there was no money. Do you know whose OS this is? This OS is from São Paulo. It’s from Doria. Fag! Tramp! ”Cried Crivella.
Then, in a note sent to UOL, Crivella apologized to the toucan, who regretted what had happened, according to Yahoo News.

According to the newspaper O Globo, the insults took place in a meeting with Republican affiliates who disputed the election for councilor.
The event took place this Wednesday (18th), in Barra da Tijuca, in Rio de Janeiro. After Crivella‘s screams, those present vibrate with the offenses and applaud the mayor.
The video was posted on Facebook by Sandro Avelar, president of the Império Serrano samba school. He supports Eduardo Paes (DEM) in the second round of the dispute for the mayor of Rio.
In a survey released by Ibope, Paes leads the race for the second round with 53% of the voting intentions, against 23% for Crivella.
On Twitter, João Dória wrote: “I am sorry that the mayor of Rio de Janeiro, a pastor who should be an example, makes attacks, uses profanity and prejudice to refer to a governor. Mayor Crivella is small and sadly ends his cycle in a melancholy way. “
Lamento que o prefeito do Rio de Janeiro, um pastor que deveria ser um exemplo, faça ataques, use palavrões e o preconceito para se referir a um governador. O prefeito Crivella se apequena e lamentavelmente encerra seu ciclo de forma melancólica.
