On social media, another JP commentator, Rodrigo Constantino, saw the intention of “ceiling”, “political campaign” or “outrage” in Marinho’s attitude. And he said he lacked “respect” and “office adoration” in interviews.

Coppola welcomed the news, saying that “freedom of expression reigns” at JP.
In a message recorded and posted on YouTube, Marinho commented on his departure from Jovem Pan. He recalled that “there, in 2020, the radio made a marketing decision to retain this pokemonist audience, promoting the thesis sympathetic to the current government, establishing an editorial line that was more adherent, more government.” “
