Fábio Rigo, son of Celso Rigo and heir of the rice-producing company Prato Fino, published yesterday on social networks attacks on the SUS (Unified Health System) and questioned the effectiveness of vaccines against covid-19. He also said that he preferred the law of the jungle.
“I want more than [o SUS] be sold. Who can cry more less. Law of the jungle. I had covid and it didn’t tickle me. I’d rather covid than this shitty vaccine.”
Netizens reacted negatively to the comments and criticized Rigo’s statements. Many people began to encourage the boycott of the brand. “They’ve never seen a penny of mine and they’re still not going to see it,” said a Twitter user. “Did you know? Fábio Rigo, son of Celso Rigo, owner of Arroz Prato Fino”, highlighted another user who then shared the entrepreneur’s post.

We are taking the necessary steps. I apologize in advance,” he said in an Instagram post. Your Twitter profile has been disabled.
