Binda had defended himself at first speaking of a video "shot in private and in a context totally of irony"and an expression (" negro ", ed) which it considers "common in a private context". The young city councilor then reported to the local media: "Given this fury towards me, moreover, from people who have escaped all my attempts at explanation and dialogue, I have already taken action in the appropriate forums, asking for the intervention of the carabinieri and the police post ".
Previously Binda had delegations given in the hands of the mayor of the town, Gianpietro Maffoni. "The young age of Councilor Binda – he underlined – or the playful context in which the sentence was pronounced cannot in any way justify the content serious and unacceptable. I therefore appreciate the gesture of Binda, who has decided to resign as an assessor showing that she has understood her mistake. "
