The name of Zé Leoncio played by Marcos Palmeira in “Pantanal”, rose to prominence on social media this Monday (04) due to the real class the character bestowed on homophobiarelated issues. In the chapter shown tonight, the pawn questioned his pawns after Zaquieu (Silvero Pereira) leaves his house after being taunted by the other local employees.
Angry to hear the news and being scolded by Mariana (Selma Egrei), Zé Leôncio arrives at the shed and finds his workers, asking why nobody stopped Zaquieu from taking the punt. Hearing the laughter of his employees, the farmer remembered when Alcides (Juliano Cazarré) called Jove (Jesuíta Barbosa) a “flozô”derogatory nickname for homosexual people.
“It was out of ignorance,” he said upon hearing Tiberio (Guito) and the other characters that nobody there is used to with “people like that”.. Zé Leôncio then countered: “So it’s good for people here to get used to it! What you do has a name and is not called a joke… It’s called homophobia. And it’s a crime,” he said, ending the matter.
Web Reactions: “Ally”
Zé Leôncio’s lines rocked the internet as soon as the chapter aired. The overwhelming majority of the public on social media welcomed this take, which differs greatly from the way the issue of homophobia was addressed in the original telenovela, which aired in 1990 and which used language now considered offensive applies to minorities.
“Zé Leôncio learned … but we cannot always count on a teacher’s class. If no Mariana is available in the room, we know where the calluses are,” said one of them. “What a scene my friends!!! What a scene. For the first time in this second part of the telenovela, I agree with Zé Leôncio,” said another. “Excellent adaptation of the theme of homophobia via Zaquieu and mit Zé Leôncio learns his lesson from Mariana’s kitchen boy and passes it on to passersby. scene required. The novel only gets better as changes are made. You just have to realize that,” commented a third party. Other reactions and memes:
