The big party organized by Neymar for the New Year created a real media outcry in Brazil.
Ravaged by the Covid-19, the current death toll showing nearly 200,000 deaths since the start of the pandemic, Brazil is having a very gloomy end-of-year holiday. Only a few wealthy people are getting ready to party on the 31st and some are not hiding it. Neymar is obviously the symbol of these ” wealthy who take the risk of spreading the virus with travel », As regrets El Pais, one of the country’s daily newspapers, which looks back on the scandal caused by the star Auriverde.
The authorities let it happen …
Critics have been blooming for a few days, while the “Ney” has imagined 5-day long festivities in his villa to the west of Rio de Janeiro. Fabrica, the agency in charge of the event, confirmed the attendance of around 150 people, specifying that “ all health measures determined by public bodies Were going to be respected. The town hall of Mangaratiba, which nevertheless closed the public spaces on December 23, explained that it could do nothing against this kind of private party …
Thus, the Sociedade Brasileira de Infectologia, through one of its doctors, Helio Bacha, accuses the federal government and the local authorities of not acting in the face of this kind of groupings. Before Christmas, a big party given by an influencer, Carlinhos Maia, widely relayed on social networks, had created controversy, especially since, in the wake, one of the guests, Mileide Mihaile, had tested positive.
“The biggest victims are blacks and the poor”
Deputy Alexandre Padilha, former Minister of Health, believes that the personalities who would promote such events, such as Neymar and his friends, should be prosecuted. ” It’s absolutely irresponsible », He proclaims, as reported El Pais.
An activist fighting against racism, Ronilso Pacheco, also regretted the party given by Neymar: “ The player was considered an adult yesterday because he posted “Black lives matter”, he now spends his fortune to entertain 500 heads, spitting on the pandemic whose greatest victims are blacks and the poor. There was better to do, Neymar “.
O jogador que faith considerado adulto ontem porque postou um “black lives matter”, hoje esbanja fortuna bancando festa pra 500 cabeças, cuspindo na pandemia cuja maiores vítimas hoje são as pessoas pretas e pobres.
Falta muito ainda @neymarjr.
