An Argentine lawmaker was suspended Thursday after kissing his partner’s breasts during a parliamentary session being held by a Zoom videoconference, a scene that quickly went viral on social media.
Argentine MP ‘kisses partner’s breasts’ during Zoom meeting
As another MP was making his address on a giant video screen installed in parliament, which also showed other participants in their homes, Juan Emilio Ameri could be seen fondling and kissing the breasts of a woman sitting next to him. For this indiscretion, Ameri has been suspended from Parliament for five days.

‘Bosom buddies’ caught on camera
The lawmaker from the northeastern province of Salta then pulled one of the woman’s breasts out of her T-shirt and started kissing it. The parliamentary session was initially interrupted, and then suspended, by the speaker Sergio Massa, who said:
“The whole time we have been teleworking these past months we have had several incidents where deputies fell asleep or another hid, but today we had a situation that really overstepped the boundaries of this house.”
Confused, Ameri, 47, tried to apologize, saying that he did not think he was connected to the internet at that particular moment. His reasoning was absolutely blockbuster, too. He claimed that he was kissing his partner’s breasts ‘because she’d just had implants’, and was asking about her progress after surgery.
“Here in the centre of the country, the connection is very poor. My partner came out of the bathroom, and I asked her how her implants were doing and I kissed them because she had surgery ten days ago to have them put in.”
