Listen to this article

A São Paulo court has ordered the Brazilian TV network Rede TV to pay $42.7 million to model Carlos Alberto Cunha Gonçalves after he was outed by a guest on the talk show Superpop, reported Nov. 23.
Judge Carlos Dias Motta ruled that the remark invaded Gonçalves’ privacy.
“Programs that are notoriously sensationalist should at a minimum make sure to respect the dignity of individuals because freedom of expression, achieved at a high price, cannot justify violating privacy, which is also a principle of the Federal Constitution,” Motta said.
