#Memo #Aponte, dubbing actor and youtuber, once again put himself at the center of the scandal, after publishing a video in which he disguised himself as the characters of the new #Disney and #Pixar film, #Soul.

The film focuses on the life after the death of an #African #American musician and his efforts to bring himself back to life. The influencer took advantage of the good reception of the film to cosplay the characters and upload a video to his #YouTube channel that would be worth the fury of #Internet users.

“A day like the characters of #Soul” was the title of the video that is no longer available on the #Aponte channel. #Among the costumes that appeared in the video, the person who played the protagonist of #Soul had his face painted to simulate a darker skin tone.

#It was then that users began to lash out at the influencer for having characterized one of his friends in that way.

“#Well, there are quite a few” mistakes “#Memo #Aponte, right? #Pedophilia #Psychological and sexual abuse #Abuse #Rapes #And now racism? #Do you think that everything is solved with tweets asking for forgiveness or fake videos apologizing? YOU SHOULD BE MORE THAN CANCELED, YOUR CONTENT IS GARBAGE ”, wrote the user @audry_ruuz on the subject.

Although Aponte deleted the video, it was seen by thousands of people who criticized it (Screenshot: Youtube)

#And the voice actor has been repeatedly accused of sexual abuse and pedophilia, a situation that users have not overlooked. #Given the enormous amount of criticism against him Aponte removed the video from his channel and issued a public apology on his #Twitter account:

I want to apologize for the cosplay of my last video. #It was wrong and my intention was never to offend anyone, much less make fun of myself. #We learned something new and it is wise to correct mistakes. #From me and my team sincere apologies. #It will not happen again.

#Various public figures have faced harsh criticism for doing “black face”, a practice in which a white person is characterized by painting their dark skin to play someone of black race.

#According to the BBC, this practice began in the #United #States and #Europe as part of entertainment. #It is considered an act of racism because this type of spectacle stimulated negative stereotypes about blacks and widely mocked their appearance and expressions.

#During the 20th century, this practice began to be increasingly denounced. #Especially, the film industry was criticized for using white actors to play black people.

#According to what the professor of #Black #Studies at #Brimingham #University, #Khide #Andrews, told the #British mediaor. The “black face” is a practice that is inherently based on racism and fostered fear and discrimination against blacks.

#For this reason, users on social networks attacked the influencer, who has been constantly accused of other types of scandals related to the abuse of minors.

#In 2019, dozens of young people denounced through their social networks youtuber and voice actor #Memo #Aponte, for having contacted his followers through #Instagram, to later transfer the conversation to the #Telegram app (an application similar to #WhatsApp) and by this means ask them for intimate photographs.
