The American Museum of Pure Historical past in New York won’t be hosting a scheduled gala dinner honoring the president of Brazil.
The Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce had rented area on the museum to honor President Jair Bolsonaro (zhah-EER’-bohl-soh-NAH’-roh) at its annual gala in Might.
The deliberate event angered some museum employees members and others who stated an establishment devoted to preserving nature shouldn’t host such a politician. Bolsonaro has been criticized for favoring mining in Brazil’s Amazon rain forest, in addition to logging and fossil gasoline exploration.
On Monday, the two organizations launched a press release saying that they had “jointly agreed that the museum just isn’t the optimal location” for the gala. It stated the “conventional event will go forward at one other location on the unique date and time.”
