Identified as Gilber Caro, a 43-year-old Venezuelan politician has become a viral sensation on the internet after a video surfaced showing him almost naked while delivering a speech in front of the National Assembly.
Caro who is a member of the hardline opposition party Popular Will, stripped down to his underwear during an emotional debate, urging the politicians to continue their support for Juan Requesens, an opposition leader who was accused and jailed for allegedly having a role in an assassination attempt on President Nicolas Maduro on August 4 during a military celebration.
In his speech in which he hailed the 29-year-old Requesens for his brilliance dedication towards fighting a good cause, he had this to say: "It's the moment. I call for unity in this institution so that we can defend it the way Requesens was out in the street defending the institution and Venezuela's liberty."
Moments later, Caro removed his sports coat as he questioned everyone in attendance, 'where does a man's dignity rest?,' before tearing his dress shirt off and walking to the other side of the chamber.
He went on to yell: "A man's dignity and love is not carried inside what I just finished removing,' Caro yelled. 'The dignity is in the heart and we carry Venezuela in the heart, [too]"
Caro also accused the president's administration of stripping its citizens of basic rights to food and medicine.
