Wakanda Forever’s Tenoch Huerta has been accused of sexual assault by Mexican saxophonist Maria Elena Rios.
Disney and Marvel Studios have dominated Hollywood with the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the past two decades. After Avengers Endgame the studios are now laying out the future with fresh faces but lately, their plans have been marred by off-set controversy. Jonathan Majors who plays Kang The Conqueror in the MCU is a key piece to the interconnected plot but his ongoing assault investigation could affect his future with Marvel.
According to CBR, another scandal has come to light: Tenoch Huerta being accused of sexual assault. Musician and Activist Maria Elena Rios took to social media to allege that the Wakanda Forever actor is a violent sexual predator. Previously she took a break from Poder Prieto which is an anti-racism group in Mexico. The group published a podcast involving her which led to her addressing the situation on social media. She alleged that she left the group due to them protecting Tenoch and his behavior and asked to not be mentioned going forward.
[translated from Spanish], “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 movie character like @TenochHuerta. Charming in appearance, the great hallmark of a narcissist + a good helping of victimization.”
She also addressed those asking why she didn’t speak up sooner and why she didn’t report the assault.
“‘And why didn’t you report?’ 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.”
While Rios didn’t offer exact details she continued to express that people refuse to believe “a SUPER HERO is an abuser, manipulator, and sexual predator,”
Neither Marvel nor Tenoch have responded to the claims but given the situation, a statement should be imminent.
