Online news portal Muvuca do Popular sought to distance itself from him. 

‘The newsroom of Muvuca do Popular, composed mainly of women, was surprised with a fateful news. The site’s founder, José Marcondes Neto, popularly known as “Muvuca” carried out an act of cowardice by committing an attempt at femicide against his ex-girlfriend, Nádia Mendes Vilela, where the communicator fired four shots at the pharmacist and then shot at himself,’ the outlet said via a Facebook statement which was signed off by seven female staffers.

‘For all his kindness and warmth to those around him, his outsized jealousy did not stop him from trying against his ex-partner’s life. Well, that’s how violence against women works.’
