Memo Aponte is accused in networks of spreading “blackface”



The influencer, youtuber and voice actor, #Memo #Aponte, once again fell into controversy, this time for spreading a “blackface“#In one of his videos, which the #Twitter users did not forgive him for. #And he was not himself characterized as a person of color, but a member of his team, who played” #Joe “, the #African-American protagonist of the new #Disney and #Pixar film, “#Soul”, however, the idea and the channel are the actor’s so the criticism was directly for him.

#It was wrong and my intention was never to offend anyone

#In the capsule “A day like the characters of SOUL !!”, he and his collaborators made cosplay of the characters of the animated film, as he usually does with other films or series, but that a person who is not black, disguises himself or emulate someone who is, it is an act of racism and xenophobia. #African #American communities around the world have emphasized that these actions lead to mockery and ridicule of a sector of the population that historically has always been violated.

#At first, #Memo took the comments of the users with respect and later offered an apology via #Twitter: “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. #We learned something new and it is wise to correct mistakes. #From me and my team sincere apologies. #It will not happen again“.

The video no longer appears on his #YouTube channel, but has been uploaded by other users. #It is not the first time that #Memo has been involved in scandals, on a couple of occasions his name has been in trend, related to harassing minors.
