He also told the senators that he does not believe in the effectiveness of the masks to prevent infection, despite the recommendation made by national and international health agencies. Faced with the statements of the businessman, for several times, the senators affirmed that the attitude of the deponent puts public health at risk and, therefore, would not be seen as freedom of speech, but classified as a crime.

"The delegate, an openly homosexual, was perhaps thinking about the perfume of some person in that plenary ...
Who would be the 'perfumed one' that captivated him?", said the businessman. Until late yesterday afternoon, the publication was still on air. The intervention made the businessman apologize to the senator. "Really, my comment was unfortunate, it was a joke comment. I think it is a bad joke," said Fakhoury. The businessman also said that he had forgotten about the social media posting until he was exposed at the CPI. "You should not ask forgiveness only to me," replied Contarato. The businessman then apologized to "everyone who felt offended by these comments".
