Wanessa Camargo Opens Up About Being Called Racist

In her first interview after her expulsion from BBB 24, Wanessa Camargo revealed her shock at being called racist.

Feeling Shocked

“I was really shocked [to be called racist]. When you’re accused of something so serious, it’s like wearing a coat that doesn’t fit… I listened to many people who have knowledge about this issue [to make a video apology on social media]. What I wanted to convey in that video is that I didn’t intend to be racist.” – Wanessa Camargo

Denial of Aggression

The singer denied assaulting Davi Brito, 21, in BBB 24. “I was at a party, had a bit too much to drink, and jokingly jumped on the bed. While dancing with my arms, I remember my hand touching the bed and brushing against Davi. I realized I was being inappropriate and apologized to him… I went to bed, woke up to the [sound of the call to the confession room], and received the news that I had been disqualified for aggression. I left in tears… Was it fair based on the program’s rules? It was fair. But in terms of fair play? It wasn’t fair.” During the conversation, Wanessa even mentioned a similar incident. “We were playing tag and, accidentally, he tripped me, which hurt me, but I understood it wasn’t intentional and would never take it as aggression. I could have used it to my advantage.”

Addressing Misconceptions

Wanessa Camargo denied influencing any possible persecution of Davi in the reality show, as well as calling him violent. “No. What happened was that he had certain behaviors, and other people who were bothered would bring up some issues… I understand that a lot now and this place of pain [of being called violent for being black]. I didn’t use the word ‘violent,’ but I said I didn’t like how he approached confrontations. I was shocked by many things taken out of context. We have a very problematic social media environment.”

Self-Reflection

She reflected on her time on the show. “I am not the 55 days I spent there [in the house]. I am 40 years of life.”

Wanessa Camargo: Relationship Status

Wanessa Camargo confirmed the end of her relationship with actor Dado Dolabella. “We ended the relationship. I have a lot of affection for what we lived, but now I need to focus on myself, my children, and my work.”
