“Throughout all these years, I have always tried to keep politics and my public representation away from personal differences. But in fact, we women especially are attacked in what is most important to us: family, care, attention. To beat me they tried to beat my daughter. Look, this is fake news. This girl Not my daughter. What you say I don’t know, I don’t even know this person. It’s a lie,” declared Pt.

Why are we investigating?: Comprova is investigating suspicious content spread on social media about the covid-19 pandemic, the general policies of the federal government, and the presidential election. The target video for this verification uses humorous content, makes fun of left-wing hardliners, and claims that the character is the daughter of Federal Representative Maria do Rosario. Misleading posts mentioning politicians and presidential candidates – as with former President Lula, mentioned in the analyzed content – can incite misinterpretations of reality and influence voters at the time of voting, to the detriment of the democratic process.

Everyone came to the conclusion that the videos with humorous content were taken out of context and used to attack Congresswoman Maria do Rosario and, indirectly, former President and pre-election candidate Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
