Initially the two comedians thought they simply had the wrong place, but it was then explained to them that only Aurora had no right to share the table with the singers / players; right that Aurora does not have as a “woman”.

You’re a woman, you can’t be here, women don’t play

The president explained to an incredulous Aurora and a stunned Ciro. On Aurora’s instagram profiles, Ciro, The Jackal and all the components, what happened is well explained. Although Aurora had been called up to “play”, had received the outfits to participate in the match, she would not have been entitled to a place like all the other male participants.

Ciro can stay, you can’t, you can’t sit here, they are our rules. Don’t make me explain why … You can put the outfit in the stands as well, what’s that got to do with it. Women don’t play. These are our rules and if you don’t want to respect them you have to get out of here
