Karol has been facing criticism on social networks because of a series of speeches, mainly against Juliette Freire and Lucas. Last Friday (29), the rapper stated that the lawyer´s manner is characteristic of her region, Paraíba, and that because she was born in Curitiba, she is more “polite”. Internet users and artists pointed out the speech as prejudiced and defended the Northeast.

Since then, Karol has attacked Juliette in the back, invented lies about her for other participants, and has also sparked outrage at her attitude of isolating the actor from Malhação – Viva a Diferença. After yet another confusion caused by the artist, the singer suggested that he eat alone, in addition to claiming that he “attracts evil and fetid spirits”.
On Monday night (1), Karol attacked Lucas again during the dynamics of the Discord Game, when he pointed him out as the BBB21’s “canceller”, besides cursing him for “shit” and not even looking at him. her, demanding that he respect the “mamacita”.
