Yesterday a video was published on TikTok where the singer Ultimo is filmed in the Spanish Quarter area of Naples. StThere were three of them on the scooter and, moreover, without a helmet. The controversy arose on social media.
The deputy of the Green-Left Alliance Francesco Emilio Borrelli denounced the incident publicly, sharing the video on his Facebook page, here are his words: “They reported to us a video posted on Tik Tok which immortalizes the singer Ultimo around the Spanish Quarters on a scooter with two other people. No one, including the artist, wears helmets. Something unacceptable from a public figure followed by many young people. Unless you tell us that it is a ‘lookalike’ of him, apologize publicly as soon as possible. What example do we set in this way to the very young? How do we explain to them that the helmet must always be worn if one of their idols flouts the rules? Public figures, especially those with a young audience, have a moral duty to always be the first to set a good example. Such acts are not tolerable.”
The cornerstone of Borrelli’s words the example that the singer should give to the younger ones given his social influence. In the video the rules of the highway code they come ignorancethe deputy asks for a public apology from the singer.
