The presenter, actor and comedian Fabio Porchat published, on the night of this sixth fair (26), a video on Instagram assuming that he made a mistake and expressed himself in a “hasty” way, in defense of also comedian Leo Lins, who has videos doing piadas with issues such as handicapped, people with disabilities and other minorities, retired by hair Court of Justice of São Paulo.
Fábio was subjected to criticism on social networks after questioning the decision of Justice about Lins’s videos. “Isso here is a shame! Inaceitável!”, disse na publicação, completing with a text stating that the humorist has the right to offend.
“Don’t you like a piada? Do not consume this food. If pity does not incite or hate violence, it is pity. All types of seasoning, pumé and trocadilho, acid and bobinha. Tem piada de mau gosto? fear too Aggressive mercy fear? Oops. But there it is only not to attend. Quem foi… ”, she wrote.
The actor starts the video saying that he has “thought a lot about the last few days, after the posts on Twitter”. “I did a lot of things, I received a lot of messages, I talked to a lot of legal people and I totally understood the reactions. I know many people are offended, disappointed and rightly so. Isso mexeu with me ”, he affirms.
“I wanted to make it clear here that my position was never to defend or racist humor. I always try to promote humor that doesn’t cause pain. That no machucasse He always said and continued saying that a comedy that inflames, humiliates and beats in minority groups is terrible, is old, unnecessary. She delays or advances socially. I don’t do that kind of pity. I do not disclose this type of pity and I am not interested in this type of pity”, he completed.
“Someone who fears the privilege of having a voice that hurts a lot of people fears that they have to be careful to choose the right words and I don’t have that care,” he admits.
During the video, the presenter affirms that he wants to make his position clear, or that he does not make the initial publications. “I wrote two tweets about a super complex issue. Falei in a flat, precipitous, confused way. So I was wrong. And that is why I decided, too, to turn off the tweets. To reface my positioning. To make it clearer, consistent with what I thought. Because the little guy that he was loose, he was irresponsible, he opened the margin to validate some things that he did not agree with, ”he explained.
“What I wanted was to talk about freedom of expression, which is a fundamental principle for a democratic society and which is always running into risks here in Brazil. That’s why he left me like this, anxious, anguished. Freedom of expression is for people to be able to express themselves without fear, without censorship, but always within two limits of the law”, he said.
Therefore, the comedian stressed that the freedom of expression does not pull from you the responsibility of what you say. “A criminal, for example, cannot hide behind the argument of freedom of expression. E a gente vê isso aconteciendo o tempo todo. Now, people also know that lei sozinha does not change the culture, does not change the setting”.
