Brazilian comedian and businessman Abdías Melo went viral on social media this Saturday (2) after an interview at Humberto Delgado airport, in Lisbon, amid the chaos at European airports with the strike of workers at two airlines.
When asked by the journalist of the broadcaster ‘RTP’ about his situation, the comedian says ‘being in the same underwear for 6 days’.
“I didn’t take a shower, I stink. It’s absurd. My armpit is stinking. And they don’t do anything. They just say: ‘let’s solve it’. Then, they book a flight, give the boarding pass, cancel. poop at home. I’m stuck, not pooping”, he said.
