Actress Fernanda Montenegro, 93, went public this Friday (6) to clarify a controversy that gained prominence in recent days. On her official Instagram profile, the artist denied that she had received any type of fee for reading excerpts from the Federal Constitution.

“Note of clarification: I inform social networks/internet that I did not receive any fee for reading excerpts from our Constitution. I am a citizen reading a document that guarantees dignity to all of us Brazilians. Fernanda Montenegro”, declared the actress in her post.

The controversy arose after the President of the Federal Supreme Court, Minister Luís Roberto Barroso, presented a video during the solemn session held this Thursday (5), in which Fernanda recited excerpts considered essential from the Federal Constitution. The occasion marked the 35th anniversary of the document’s promulgation.

In the video, the actress read passages that highlight the fundamental objectives of the Republic, including the construction of a free, fair and supportive society, national development and the eradication of poverty, marginality and inequalities, without discrimination based on origin, race, sex, color or age.

Furthermore, the artist emphasized article 5 of the Constitution, which establishes equal rights and duties between men and women, freedom of belief and the criminalization of racism, as well as the action of armed groups against the constitutional order and the democratic state. .

The president of the STF thanked the actress during the session. “She lent her wonderful art to read, with soul, some of the main provisions of the Brazilian Constitution,” he said.
