O Manhattan Connection will no longer be displayed by TV Culture, announced the station on Saturday, 25. The last unreleased program aired on Wednesday, 22, and the attraction will air for the last time with its rerun on Sunday, 26. According to a statement, the decision was taken “in common I wake up”.
On the official profile of Manhattan Connection on Twitter, the excerpt of the song was published Parents and sons, by Legião Urbana: “I’ve lived in so many houses that I don’t even remember anymore”. It is a reference to the stations the program has been through: GNT, Globo News (from where it came out in November 2020) and Cultura (where it had premiered in January of this year).
In May, the program showed signs that it was experiencing turmoil, wide open with the resignation of one of its commentators, Diogo Mainardi. On April 28, he argued with the lawyer Antônio Carlos de Almeida Castro, known as Kakay, even using the curse “go take no c*”.
