Televisa Draws Criticism for "Brownface" Parody of 'Roma' Star Yalitza Aparicio




Yeka Rosales, a Televisa personality, is under fire for posting photos allegedly mocking Roma star Yalitza Aparicio.

Rosales recently posted a photo of herself with darkened skin, a straight black wig, a dress similar to that which Aparicio wore to the Oscars, and making exaggerated facial expressions typically used to mock indigenous peoples.

This isn't the first time Rosales has been accused of posting racist photos of herself. She previously donned blackface while dressing up as Donna Summer.
