The three students of the Biomedicine course at Unisagrado University who recorded a video making fun of a classmate, just because she was over 40 years old, decided to drop out of the course after the negative repercussion of the recording.
In the video, which ended up going viral on social media and has already surpassed one million views, the girls mock the older university student “She was supposed to be retired”, they say after a series of insults.
In a note, the Universiade Unisagrado in Bauru, in the interior of São Paulo, stated that “a disciplinary process was initiated and, during the course, the three students requested that they withdraw from the Biomedicine course; in this way, the process lost its purpose and therefore ended”.
Before the announcement about the withdrawal, one of the girls who were in the video, issued a note, through a lawyer, claiming to have suffered threats.
Giovana Cassalati’s defense says that “it was never intended to attack the image or any other personality right belonging to the target character of the speeches contained in the video.”
The girl’s lawyer alleges that at the moment her family intends to manifest itself only through notes released by him, since Bauru is a very small city and Giovana has received threats that scare the whole family.
In this way, the defense states that it does not want to “draw even more attention to the case”, since, according to them, the threats have prevented the girls from “resuming their daily lives”.
In addition, he says that all legal measures against “those who offend, attack, spread false information, create false profiles on social networks and threaten the physical integrity of the university student will be taken in a timely manner, as the virtual environment cannot serve as a shield for the commission of crimes”.
