Get a Zoom! Couples are caught having sex during the video conference of the Rio de Janeiro Council
- The city council of Rio de Janeiro discussed the guarantee of food for students in the municipal system
- The chairman Leonel Brizola continued to meet despite the scenes in the background
- The council members involved reportedly noticed this but decided to consider the matter at hand
This is the moment when one of the attendees in a Zoom meeting forgot to turn off their camera and was caught having sex in the background.
The meeting was chaired by a member of the Socialism and Freedom Party, Leonel Brizola, who continued the discussion even though the scenes were broadcast on the video feed.
It was a meeting for the Rio de Janeiro City Council where the local newspaper Metropoles reported on how to guarantee food to students in the municipal system during the pandemic.
Footage from the city council meeting in Rio de Janeiro shows a participant having sex after turning on his camera
The footage shows the Zoom participant in the middle row on the right side of the screen "leaving" the meeting and having sex on the bed in the background.
The meeting, which started at 10 a.m., apparently went as planned when one of the participants stopped watching the discussion and had sex in the background while the camera was still rolling.
The man was not a councilor, according to the local newspaper Globo.
The meeting reportedly continued for four hours without a break.
The other council members at the meeting reportedly noticed the scenes but decided to ignore them and discuss the matter further.
In a statement, Brizola said the episode was an "involuntary indiscretion" and regretted that the actual topic of the meeting was not highlighted in media reports.
The councilors reportedly noticed the scenes but decided to ignore them and continue to discuss the matter
Brizola said, “As soon as we saw what was happening, we immediately asked the people who controlled the attendees' audio and video to remove it from the feed.
"We councilors and other participants have no control over the control or editing of videos in Zoom."
He also stressed the importance of the topic discussed, which for him "demonstrated the incompetence of a city that has resources but does not ensure that children's rights are respected".
It is unclear whether the person concerned was punished for the incident.
