In his latest comical tweet, Costa is seen saying Cavill was one of the members in the protest at the National Congress in Brasilia. A picture had been released of thousands of supporters of Brazil’s ousted former president, Jair Bolsonaro, storming Brazil’s Congress on Sunday. They are protesting a claim that the election was rigged and that Bolsonaro had been removed illegally.
A fan commented on the tweet saying, “The wildness of your tweets is truly something special.” Another fan even asked Paulo if he would be running for the role of Brazil’s president
