Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro has been under fire by the international community following the Amazon fires. French president Emmanuel Macron was particularly critical of Brazil and Bolsonaro.
On August 15, 2019 Renzo Gracie was named Ambassador of International Tourism under Embratur, a branch of Brazil’s Ministry of Tourism, and he went ahead and commented on the Bolsonaro and Macron tension.

“Macron, I’m sorry, Micron. Micron, man, you’re talking trash about my country. The only fire going on is the fire inside Brazilian hearts and our president’s heart, you clown. Come over here you’ll be caught by the neck, that chicken neck. You don’t fool me.
In a subsequent interview with Brazilian news website UOL, Renzo Gracie talked about ‘false claims’ about the Amazon fires:
“That gang of clowns only open their mouths to speak badly about our country,” Mr Gracie said, referring to Mr Macron. “”Of course many will be astonished, they will think I called him a female chicken because his manhood is questionable, but no. I’ve met many gays more manly than this imbecile.”
When pressed further, Renzo also commented on the looks of Macron’s wife Brigitte, who is 20 years older than the French president:
“I’ll ask you a question. Is she ugly or pretty? Would you hook up with her? If you’re going to talk trash about our country, you better be ready to listen to some trash back, and about your relatives, too. The fact that he sleeps with a dragon doesn’t make him a fire expert. She’s ugly, man.”
