Brazilian Puritanism

I rarely think of puritanism when I think of Brazil, but I guess I'm wrong.

Basically painted a scarlet letter on the poor woman and everything. Totally ridiculous.

[UPDATE BY TREND] Apparently, about 700 students also called her things offensive enough for Brazilian channels to edit it out. And while the dress is short, it's not like she was wearing a see-through outfit with no underwear or anything. As this Brazilian report commented, it's the same kind of dress that you find in hundreds of stores throughout Brazil. (And while the video is in Portuguese, you can see the "offensive" dress at minute 1:22.) This is just inexcusable, and hopefully, the private university is rightfully chastised in any means and measures available.
