Rio de Janeiro (AFP) - A Brazilian government minister said French first lady Brigitte Macron was "truly ugly" Thursday, only days after the country's president appeared to endorse an attack on her appearance.
Brazil's economy minister Paulo Guedes said he agreed with President Jair Bolsonaro's comments about Macron's looks.
"The president said it -- it's true," he said to applause during an economic forum. "The woman is truly ugly."
Later, an aide said in a statement that Guedes "asks for forgiveness for the joke he made today during a public event... when he mentioned the French first lady."
Bolsonaro garnered criticism last week when he appeared to agree with a Facebook post that implied French President Emmanuel Macron's wife was not as attractive as his own wife Michele Bolsonaro.
He wrote "Do not humiliate the guy, ha ha" on a post that read "Now you understand why Macron is persecuting Bolsonaro" next to pictures of the two first ladies.
The French president called Bolsonaro's behavior "extraordinarily rude" and the Brazilian president later deleted his comment.

But I bet she was really something before electricity.
Not very diplomatic of him.
I don’t think she’s ugly - but her husband IS a homosexual.
Diplomacy is overrated.
I think they might be right about her but you sure know why the Brazilian minister of economy says such things. He has nothing to brag about on economy. It is not how public politics are made.
Why thoughts exactly. Bolsonaro finally exposing himself for an overrated clown he really is.
Aw come on, I have great fun posting about how nice a guy Macaroon is to have his mother there with him so often.
Me too, but once again we aren’t public figures.
Why is he doing this? What could he see as the upside? Why throw virtual rocks at people you may need to work with? Repeatedly attacking another man’s wife, and that man is a national leader?
That’s just wrong. He starting to act as unstable as Rodrigo Duterte, the Phillipine president.
Our president has not done anything like that since during the heat of the campaign in 2016.
He made some sort of uncomplimentary remarks about Ted Cruz’s wife.And of course, accused Ted’s dad of killing JFK.
But once the campaign was over, so were the sharpened barbs.
The reason is they aren’t who they are. Bolsonaro’s ‘conservative’ rhetoric is fake. He is a cheap third world populist with a big mouth.
Who gives a shit what some Brazilian minister says about Macron’s creepy schoolboy fantasy? I thought it was usually about your hot teacher, not the lunch lady.
Snowflake diplomats. Macron should challenge the guy to a duel. Otherwise take it like the twerp he is.
She’s a pedophile..grabbed Macron when he was in high school. Ha
Macron should just say at least we can win the World Cup at home. That would really hurt.
Both countries, Brazil, Puerto Rico can’t seem to catch a break from politicians who are sleazy, corrupt or just plain incompetent. We get people like that here in the states too, but there are usually ways to limit there influence or damage. Apparently, I was mistaken about Bolsonaro.
I thought he was a serious man.
She is very attractive. More so than her husband.
