The images that reverberated this weekend were recorded by the businessman himself after a food delivery at the house of a resident of the city, in Jardim Bonfiglioli. (see below).

According to the woman’s family, identified as Ilza Ramos Rodrigues, the cleaning lady used to receive lunch boxes from the businessman every Wednesday.

“She stayed with three and helped two more families. He always took a picture to show that he was delivering the donations, only this time he came with the camera recording and it even freaked me out”, says Ilza’s niece, Greyce Kelly Ramos Rodrigues.

There is no information on where the video was originally published, but it was played on the Jornalistas Livres’ Twitter account and had repercussions on social media. In the video, the businessman asks who the woman will vote for president in this year’s elections, Jair Bolsonaro (PL) or Lula (PT).

Then, when the woman answers that she is going to vote for the PT candidate, the man says: “Lula? So ‘okay’ well, she’s Lula, as of today she doesn’t have a lunch box anymore. It’s the last lunch box that comes here. You ask Lula now, ok?”

The video shows that the resident even asked if the man was telling the truth, and he confirms: “Really, really. ‘Okay’, guys? No more lunchboxes here, she’ll ask Lula, ‘okay’?

Ilza’s niece said that, after recording the video, her aunt called her nervous, reporting what had happened. According to the family, after turning off the camera, the businessman said nothing more to the resident, got into his car and left.

“She thought it was a joke, but it wasn’t, because the other week he didn’t bring a lunch box anymore. She was even waiting the other Wednesday to see if she would come, but she didn’t,” says Greyce.

After the repercussion of the case, the businessman apologized for the recording and said he was sorry.

“I’m Cassio and I’m here to apologize for the video, for the misfortune of having made this video. I’m very sorry. It’s been more than two years since I make 60 lunchboxes every Wednesday and I deliver to homeless people and to this lady , and that’s not what will make me stop this work of mine,” he said in a video on social media.
