Mauricio Martínez, Mexican Broadway actor, exposed for overall problematic tweets



Mauricio became famous by getting the 5th place in musical reality show “operación triunfo” a few years ago, he has since gone on to work in American theatre productions, however, he’s well known for being right-leaning and since he mostly tweets in Spanish, his shenanigans have gone under the radar.

Under the thread subject of this post, several screenshots have been condensed, in them he’s seen calling a Mexican congresswoman to go on a diet and calling her a cenadora (wordplay of senadora [female senator] and someone who is having dinner and eating, from the verb “cenar”), his liberal use of the word “naco”, a term usually aimed at indigenous groups or uneducated/poor/dark skin people, saying he has been a recipient of racism due to being blond with green eyes, telling a dark skinned politics commentator that the TV make up he’s wearing makes him look like a lesbian (?), and finally stating anyone that criticizes him is resentful.



More information is popping up, with the latest being an audio of Mauricio saying Tenoch Huerta (a moreno actor) can’t criticize him or the racism in the country, since Tenoch probably lives in la condesa (a hip, upscale neighborhood in Mexico City) when he should be living in Iztapalapa (a very poor area of the same city).
