Comedian Diogo Devante, of the YouTube channel of the same name, posted a video, Wednesday (4), of receiving the vaccine against Covid-19 and shouting “Fora SUS”. The joke became one of the most talked about topics on the web on Wednesday. Despite what was “wrong” at the demonstration, with people chanting “Out of Bolsonaro,” what caught the eye in the video was the reaction of the nurse who gave the dose.
Netizens immediately commented that the woman seemed to be shooting the particular comedian, at least until she realized it was all a joke. In the post on Twitter, Defante wrote “travel an idiot” when posting the video. In the pictures, Diogo Devante asks for a repeat of the potion and thus is able to shout “Fora Bolsonaro”.

About 5 hours after it was posted, the “Outside SUS” thread ranked third in terms of comments on Twitter. The comedian’s last name “Defante” was the sixth most mentioned topic. Among the comments, much of the joke was mocked, with comedians also Rafael Portugal and Thiago Ventura also skeptical, but other people questioned the seriousness of the protest.
