The entrepreneur Luciano Hang, owner of the chain of stores Mortar, lost a lawsuit filed by him against Youtuber and businessman Felipe Neto because of a publication made in the pandemic.

In addition to losing the dispute, Hang is expected to bear the fees of the defense lawyers of the youtuber.
Sought by Prime Time Zone, Havan commented on the court decision, saying that “it was always authorized to sell food products, which lasted during the pandemic of Covid-19“, Classifying Felipe Neto’s speeches as“ imprecise ”and saying that they were intended to mislead readers. In a note sent to the press, the company also said that, alongside Hang, it will appeal against the decision of the TJ-SP and stated that it believes that the Justice “will recognize the illegality of the publication with untrue information”.
