Brazilian singer Anita bans President Jair Bolsonaro on her social media page
Brazilian singer Anita reacted strongly after President Jair Bolsonaro mocked the colors of the national flag she chose for her outfit during a performance at the Coachella Festival in California.
Anita commented in response to the president's comments in a post on a social networking site, writing: "Go, dude, and find something else to have fun with," before blocking him on her page to prevent him from responding to her again.
In recent statements, the singer revealed, "It is a position that I take both as a citizen and as an artist. I will continue to do so, no matter who is in power. In the current situation, Brazil needs many changes, the first of which is a change of government."
Unrelenting in criticizing the far-right president, Anita revealed, "I blocked him immediately so that the custodians of his account could not access my accounts to create an uproar on the Internet."
Anita had written a post after a show in which she wore clothes bearing the flags of her country, Brazil, green, yellow and blue: "The flag of Brazil in its colors is for all Brazilians. It represents the whole of Brazil. No one can be alone in explaining the colors of our country's flag." A candidate for a second presidential term sarcastically: "I agree with Anita's opinion," attached to his tweet with several emoji symbols and the flag of Brazil, which angered the artist.
