Giovanna Ewbank said her children were victims of racism this Saturday (30) at a restaurant in Costa da Caparica, Portugal. According to the actress, a woman cursed Bless and Titi, their children with Bruno Gagliasso, and a few Angolan tourists who were staying at the site.
“We confirm, according to videos already circulating in Brazil, that Giovanna reacted and confronted the woman while Bruno Gagliasso, her husband, called the police,” the actress’ press office tells g1.
The press office claims Bruno Gagliasso called the police and the woman was escorted and arrested. The actors, who are in the country on holiday, say they will file a complaint against the woman at a Portuguese police station.
See the full explanation below:
“We announce that the children of the couple Giovanna Ewbank and Bruno Gagliasso were victims of racism this Saturday, July 30, at the Clássico Beach Club restaurant in Costa da Caparica, Portugal, where the family spends their holidays.
A white woman walking past the restaurant deliberately verbally abused not only Títi and Bless, but also a family of Angolan tourists who were staying in town about 15 black people. The criminal told them to leave the restaurant and return to Africa, among other absurdities uttered to children, such as “dirty blacks.”
According to videos already circulating in Brazil, we confirm that Giovanna reacted and confronted the woman while Bruno Gagliasso, her husband, called the police. The woman was escorted and arrested.
We also inform you that Bruno Gagliasso and Giovanna Ewbank will officially report the racist to the Portuguese police station.
Trigo Casa de Comunicação regrets the aggression faced by Títi, Bless and Angolan tourists and fully supports the measures taken by Giovanna and Bruno. Racism is a crime.”
