La Academia is a reality show that has gained great popularity in previous editions, due to the engagement achieved by participants in these proposals.
Fighting against painful practices such as harassment in the media has been a titanic activity that has escalated to international movements such as the well-known Me Too.
The action in which a man is heard sexualizing Academy participants occurs a few days after a class against sexual harassment was taught, as part of the zero tolerance policy applied in this company.
A member of staff of The academy is heard in a video, where the preparations of students for a concert of the musical reality of Aztec, making all kinds of comments that sexualize the participants. This caused a trend that denounces sexual harassment in the famous reality show and the topic overflowed on social networks this Saturday, even ruining an important lesson that was given to students to combat this unfortunate practice, this by the specialist louis hidalgo.
With no more clue than the stage of The Academy in the background and reality show participants in the frame. We see possible victims of harassment, for the auditory evidence that there is, with comments heard in full recording. The issue spread across networks, so it is important to report that a significant number of Twitter users are commenting on a video posted from an account that we qualify as “suspicious” due to the number of followers, previous posts and open time.
– Grupo Salinas is a large ecosystem of companies that have carved out a unique space in each of the market categories in which they compete –
Under this logic Merca2.0 decides to report the fact that it is registering on social networkson which Grupo Salinas has already been asked for its position and pending comments, it is important to review this situation and the context in which it occurs, as Azteca’s decision to postpone until tomorrow the attention and position against the case of sexual harassment denounced in networks.
