Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said on Tuesday that Brazilians must not treat the coronavirus like “a country of sissy”.
AFP translated “sissies” to “fags”, although this has been disputed:
“All we talk about these days is the pandemic. We have to stop this, ”Bolsonaro said during the speech […]
“I regret the dead. I really do. But we’ll all die one day. There is no point in running away from reality. We must stop being a country of queers…. We have to face it and fight. I hate that queer thing.
It was the latest in a long list of controversial statements about the Bolsonaro pandemic, which condemned “hysteria” around Covid-19, compared the new coronavirus to a “little flu” and claimed that the immune system of Brazilians was so strong that he could swim in the sewage and “not catch anything”.

Bolsonaro also lamented on Tuesday that the Chinese coronavirus has turned Brazil into “a country of maricas,” a term that roughly translates to “sissies” in Portuguese but in other Latin languages like Spanish is considered a insult against homosexual men.
Bolsonaro has also refused media requests for him to prematurely recognize Joe Biden as president-elect.
Jair Bolsonaro is the President of Brazil. Using his powers as president, he did not recognize Biden as the winner of the US election. Therefore, we Brazilian conservatives use the hashtag #BidenWasNotElected to show our support for President Trump.

Bolsonaro himself, although he was stabbed in the stomach and almost died in 2018, survived the coronavirus in August after taking hydroxychloroquine and has seen his popularity increase over the past year.
