Brazilian Election Watch: Foreign Celebrities Weigh In on Brazilian Elections

A quick recap to get everybody up to speed:

A couple weeks ago someone in Brazil started a hashtag called #elenao (not him), in reference to Brazilian presidential candidate Jaír Bolsonaro. Many Brazilian celebrities chimed in, and then well known people from outside Brazil began to manifest themselves…

…like, the Black Eyed Peas

Tranlsation: Brazil, we are with you in this struggle, Much love, diversity, and respect.

It’s been a while since we’ve heard of the Black Eyed Peas…but wasn’t there a girl who used to sing with them?

There were others…

Ellen Page

We, of course, are outraged at such blatant prejudice against mustaches.

Nicole Scherzinger

Because the woman “famous” for her participation in The Pussycat Dolls is very concerned about misogyny, and stuff.

But in our opinion the one that takes the cake is this video, recorded by British actor and comedian Stephen Fry, who comes out in opposition to one “Mr. Bosaro”.

We can only assume he means “Mr. Bolsonaro” . In the video he tell Brazilians that it is none of his business to tell them how to vote…then proceeds to do just that.

It remains to be seen whether or not this deluge of opinion from beyond Brazil’s borders will have any effect on the Brazilian electorate – and if it does have an effect, what kind of effect it will be.
