TV journalist Globo Chico Pinheiro was threatened on a social network by a man named Luiz Antônio Lacerda, who called himself a professional trainer.
"Chico Pinheiro and his entourage must be hanged. It will be cheaper. Liars, obedient, profiteers, and distort the facts with bad comments," the man wrote.
Chico reacted and asked: "Teacher, is this everything you post on your profile? Master of Management at FGV? I am afraid that the threat will be hung."
According to UOL, the man said he worked at FAESA, a university center. Chico accused the agency with an explanation of comments written by Lacerda.
