Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro tweeted out a sexually explicit video of a man pissing on another man’s head in an apparent attempt to denounce Carnaval, the country’s massive annual street party.
The far right populist, elected last year, shared a video of two men standing on a taxi stand in order to “expose the truth” about Carnaval. At one point, one the men appears to piss on the hair of the other. It’s graphic.
“This is what Brazilian carnival street parties have turned into,” Bolsonaro said.
Defenders of the event claimed the video he tweeted out was an isolated incident. After a torrent of criticism, Bolsonaro asked Twitter Wednesday what a “golden shower” is.
According to an Insider report, Bolsonaro’s crusade against Carnaval comes after the festival made a mockery of him.
Bolsonaro has a history of homophobic and bigoted remarks. He once said he’s “proud to be homophobic” and that he would “rather his son die in a car accident than be gay.” He also once told a congresswoman she was too ugly to be raped.
