Brazil pres­i­dent sorry for slur

The Citizen (KZN) - - World -

– Brazil­ian Pres­i­dent Jair Bol­sonaro said on Satur­day that it was wrong for him to tell a jour­nal­ist a day ear­lier that he had “the face of a ho­mo­sex­ual”.

“I was wrong. I shouldn’t have said it,” said Bol­sonaro.

The orig­i­nal com­ment by the out­spo­ken pres­i­dent came in re­sponse to a re­porter’s ques­tion about an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into his el­dest son, Sen­a­tor Flavio Bol­sonaro, for al­leged money laun­der­ing when he was a re­gional deputy.
