The French foreign minister focused on Jair Bolsonaro after the Brazilian president and his allies launched a series of bizarre personal attacks on French first lady Brigitte Macron.
Jean-Yves Le Drian said the comments from top Brazilian officials & # 39; unworthy & # 39; were and raged that & # 39; people do not manage international relations as an insult contest & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I see the continued existence of aggressive words, nonsense that is not acceptable & # 39 ;, he told European radio.

Two of his assistants have since made matters worse.

Brigitte and Emmanuel Macron are seen together at the G7 summit in France, where the line with Jair Bolsonaro from Brazil started
Brazilian martial arts legend Renzo Gracie, now a tourist ambassador for the country, called Brigitte Macron a & # 39; dragon & # 39; in a bizarre video.
In the clip, he said that Emmanuel Macron was a & # 39; clown & # 39; was that & # 39; nonsense & # 39; talked before he threatened with violence.
& # 39; Come here, you will be caught by that neck, that chicken neck. You are not kidding me & # 39 ;, said the former MMA hunter.
The case escalated further on Thursday when Economy Minister Paulo Guedes Mrs. Macron & # 39; really ugly & # 39; called.
Guedes apologized on Thursday evening and said he had no intention of offending Mrs. Macron.
The line has been simmering since the G7 summit in France last month, when Macron and Bolsonaro collided with each other over the Amazon fires.
It fell in personal attacks when Bolsonaro endorsed a sexist Facebook message about Mrs. Macron, 66.
A Bolsonaro supporter placed this meme, mocking Brigitte Macron, and compared it unfavorably with 37-year-old Michelle Bolsonaro in Brazil. It says: & # 39; Do you now understand why Macron is suing Bolsonaro? & # 39; The far-right Brazilian leader replied: & # 39; Don't humiliate the man, ha ha & # 39 ;, referring to Mr. Macron
Brazilian former martial arts star Renzo Gracie posted a video on Twitter in which he Brigitte Macron a & # 39; dragon & # 39; and Emmanuel Macron called a & # 39; clown & # 39; that & # 39; nonsense & # 39; talk before engaging in violent threats
A Bolsonaro supporter shared a meme who mocked Mrs. Macron's appearance and compared her unfavorably to 37-year-old first lady Michelle Bolsonaro in Brazil.
The Brazilian leader, 64, replied: & # 39; Don't humiliate the man, ha ha & # 39 ;, referring to the French president.
Macron destroyed the & # 39; extremely rude & # 39; Bolsonaro in response.
Bolsonaro then hit back and accused Macron of treating Brazil as & # 39; a colony or no man's land & # 39 ;.
Even Jean-Luc Melenchon, one of President Emmanuel Macron's political rivals, published a social media post on Friday in which he expressed his & # 39; disgust for such bruises & # 39; stated after the series of attacks by Brazilian officials.
Bolsonaro has accused France of intervening in its domestic policy by imposing demands on the Amazon fires.
He said that Europe has nothing to teach Brazil about preserving the environment.
However, Bolsonaro has found an ally in the United States where President Donald Trump praised his approach to the crisis and offered American assistance.
