“So, here’s the thing: where are the defenders of the animal cause who don’t defend the monkey? The monkey is exposed. See how much hypocrisy! And the monkey is intelligent, it’s very close to the man, the only difference is the tail”, stated Malta during a meeting of the economic affairs committee.


In Malta’s argument, the media covered the matter to gain an audience.

“Revictimizing him, because the subject gives them Ibope for them to gain more sponsors. It is a ‘brazenness’ that”, he said.

“They revitalize Vinicius, instead of putting the boy up there. He’s already made his outburst. He’s simply a genius, he plays today for Real Madrid as he played for Flamengo’s juniors, without knowing that there’s anyone on the field and such”, he added.

According to the senator, in addition to racism, he is also jealous of the attacks against Vini Jr. “What they did is barbaric, what they did is dishonest, it’s dishonest. In what they did to him, we take everything for the color of his skin, but there’s a lot involved there: he’s jealous, he wanted to be him and he’s not” , argued.

Ethics Council

On Wednesday (24th) two requests for the initiation of disciplinary proceedings against Senator Magno Malta were filed with the Council of Ethics and Parliamentary Decorum of the Federal Senate.

The first was signed by journalists, former athletes and celebrities and says that the senator’s speech is “incompatible with parliamentary decorum” and asks that Malta lose the senator’s mandate.

The second request was filed by PSOL, calling Magno Malta’s speech “racist” and “inhumane” and also asking for the impeachment of the parliamentary mandate.

The PSOL even filed a criminal report against the senator with the STF.
