Colombian "artist" and noted misogynistic asshole J Balvin decided that it was such a good idea to sell face masks as merch for his new album called "Colores"
Of course people dragged him and the guy deleted but internet never forgets, instead of apologizing he decided to blame his marketing team, because according to him he would never ever ever do something as vile.
El Tweet sobre las máscaras si salió de mi cuenta pero NO FUE con mi consentimiento, ya hablé con el equipo de marketing y si está muy mal hecho, ofrezco mis disculpas.Esa no es la forma en la que yo actúo menos en un momento como este.— J BALVIN (@JBALVIN) March 21, 2020
Fans noted that the "mistake" was made in the official store, it's also "funny" that he has talked about that but not a single word of support for his home country (that is going into quarantine ) has been said.
