Paola Ferrari she needs no introduction: famous journalist, presenter who enters the homes of all Italians talking about sport on the Rai networks, of which she has been the historical face for years. But its notoriety is also linked to the criticisms that cyclically return to hit it: in transmission, according to the detractors, it would be too much light from the spotlight, pointed frontally on her to make her look younger and remove some wrinkles.
Apparently, in fact, theage of Paola Ferrari (61 years old) is enough reason for someone to ask for his removal from the screens, as @luca_finally writes on Twitter: “Dear @RaiUno, but do we really have to put up with #paolaferrari every single night? A little bit of turnover, right? But can’t he work in the editorial office at some point? Of course on video? New recruits? I’m not saying @DilettaLeotta but … I remind you that I continue to pay a fixed € 90 eh !!! “.
Is exactly Diletta Leotta back in other tweets to poison against the Rai Spot presenter: “These are the notes of #paolaferrari who from the height of her great football experience allows herself to criticize #DilettaLeotta as beautiful but not good ”, writes @ AndreaCorea1, publishing the photo of the folder that Paola Ferrari holds in her hand during the broadcast.

And he is not spared either Paola Ferrari’s husband, Marco De Bendetti, son of the best known entrepreneur and publisher Carlo De Bendetti, which for some would be the reason behind the journalist’s hiring in Rai: “Oh well, we certainly don’t find out today that she is still there for recommendations and not for merit”Tweets bluntly @ Biancofficial1.
But the truth is that the digs and teasing at Paola Ferrari mainly concern her appearance and the issue “Lights aimed at the face”: “But how much do they spend on their electricity bill to light up #paolaferrari? It is now ethereal … It has overtaken the #barbaradurso ”, writes @IStremato. “A good half of the #RAI fee is used to illuminate #paolaferrari”, echoes @antocaf.
But on the social networks there are also numerous fans of the host or in any case those who try to defend her, saying clearly that there is a reason behind certain shots and certain lights and all that trick that Ferrari has on her face: “Paola Ferrari is fighting versus a bad facial cancer. Stop making fun of her. That’s enough. Really enough, please ”, writes @LucillaMasini.
The journalist, in fact, had already given interviews and spoke publicly about the tumor he suffers from: what he thought was a “trivial pimple”, he had told a Life live, in fact, it was revealed to be, at the controls, “an infiltrating nodular carcinoma: it needed an important removal operation”, otherwise it would have affected the nerves and eyes.

Who knows how many “haters” and “keyboard lions” know this background. But is it more serious to insult someone for their physical appearance even knowing that they have physical problems, or to insult someone for free, maybe just because they are a public figure and therefore are believed to be part of the game?
The most sensible comment, perhaps, was posted by @CarmelindaFire: “We have thought about the joke about the lights that illuminate #PaolaFerrari, maybe even done, more or less everyone. But if you do it every day, nobody laughs anymore. #bodyshaming, sexist jokes, insults, total disrespect, even enough. There is always the remote control“.
