Saxophonist, activist, and feminist María Elena Ríos has accused actor Tenoch Huerta of being a sexual predator. Huerta recently joined the MCU as Namor in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The accusations were outlined at Reforma, and we spotted them thanks to Cosmic Book News and Twitter.
The accusations came out when Ríos made public she did not want to be associated with the anti-racism group Poder Prieto, claiming she was not paid for a podcast she allegedly took part in.
Ríos’s tweets are in Spanish, so we’ll include links to the original tweets and quote the translations below.
Oye MARCA de @poderprieto_mx
NO TIENEN CONSENTIMIENTO en difundir un material que no me quisieron pagar y que así como este, en varios me explotaron para trabajarles gratis.

“THEY DO NOT HAVE CONSENT to disseminate a material that they did not want to pay me and that, like this, in several they exploited me to work for them for free. They don’t learn do they? Apart from being violent for defending the PREDATOR from @TenochHuerta, exploiters.”
Les dejé muy claro a mi salida de su secta que protege al violentador y DEPREDADOR sexual de @TenochHuerta que no publicaran nada de mí. Todavía fueron a buscarme a un concierto bola de hipócritas para evitar escándalos por su película de @MarvelLATAM.

“I made it very clear to them when I left their sect that they protect the violator and sexual PREDATOR of @TenochHuerta that they not publish anything about me. They still went to look for me at a hypocritical ball concert to avoid scandals over their @MarvelLATAM movie.”
“¿Y por qué no denunciaste?”
Dicen los que viven en un país machista, donde la justicia es inalcanzable donde casi te matan y ni aún así te creen ni llega la justicia.
• Y no, no quiero ser famosa.
• Y no, no quiero dinero porque sé trabajar.

“It is very difficult to talk about the emotional abuse and abuse of power of a sexual predator who is loved in the world for playing a character in a movie like @TenochHuerta Charming in appearance, the great hallmark of a narcissist + a good helping of victimization.“
“They say those who live in a macho country, where justice is unattainable where they almost kill you and still they don’t believe you or justice comes.
• And no, I don’t want to be famous.
• And no, I don’t want money because I know how to work.”
The details of Tenoch Huerta’s alleged crimes are nowhere to be found, and Ríos has not commented further on her statements since early this morning. However, according to La Verdad, This isn’t the first time Huerta has been accused. In 2019 the actor was called out during the MeToo movement for allegedly sexually harassing someone on a Skype call.
It should not have to be said, but since we live in an age where a story travels faster than the truth, please wait for more information before making judgments on Tenoch Huerta or anyone involved. That includes Jonathan Majors, who was also accused of abuse.[Source: Twitter] [Source: Cosmic Book News] [Source: Reforma] [Source: La Verdad]
