Despite the fact that a few days ago, Josep Pedrerol tried to put an end to the alleged racist controversy of ‘El chiringuito’ with Vinicius, explaining that the expression used by Pedro Bravo to address the Brazilian player was a misinterpreted translation, the presenter of the sports program has decided to go through the judicial process. Yesterday afternoon, during one of the live broadcasts on Twitch of the Mega football program, Pederol announced that from the format they will file a criminal complaint against those who have insinuated that the show has “mafia attitudes”.

It was the journalist and ‘youtuber’ Iñaki Angulo, who, through his YouTube channel, accused the Mega program of having directly threatened Vinicius. Angulo stated that a worker from ‘El chiringuito’ addressed the Real Madrid footballer with the following message: “If you take out that video, we are going to destroy you in ‘El chiringuito”. According to the journalist, the objective of this threat was that the soccer player did not publish the video of Pedro Bravo, which caused all this controversy.

“If you want to dance samba, you go to the ‘sambódromo’, here what you have to do is stop acting like a monkey”, were the controversial words that Bravo used to refer to Vinicius. Josep Pedrerol tried to defend his partner and explain that this “It was an inappropriate expression, but not racist”.

The presenter of ‘El chiringuito’ insisted that “in Spain it is a colloquial expression that means don’t play dumb”. However, it seems that Pedrerol’s justifications have not been understood by everyone and the criticism against the Mega format is becoming more and more voracious.

That is why yesterday Josep Pedrerol was blunt on the ‘El chiringuito’ Twitch channel: “We are preparing a criminal complaint with everyone who has said that we have mafia attitudes. We will not forgive those things. We want to get to the end, from the one who publishes it, to the one who filters it and to the one who moves it. It is good that we go to court for that,” defended the presenter.

Although the driver of ‘El chiringuito’ is used to receiving insults and criticism through social networks, he pointed out that “there are things that cannot be allowed”. Josep Pedrerol spent several minutes defending his program and warning all those who make wrong accusations about the Mega format: “This program is wrong or not wrong, but it never threatens, and we will go to the end. We will prove it, whoever insinuated that ‘El Chiringuito’ has mafia attitudes will pay, will pay, okay?”, announced the presenter seriously looking at the camera.

“I had never told you this kind of thing, because I think they don’t play on a show like Twitch, which is supposed to be good vibes. Even on television it does not touch, but there is a limit“Pedrerol thus justified this tense attitude in front of the camera. The presenter also stated that from the program they have information on those who make these accusations and how they move: “We will go to the end, they are surrounded and ‘El chiringuito’ does not stain”warned Josep Pedrerol.
