Magaly Medina became a trend for launching a controversial comment about the soccer player Gianluca Lapadula, the Italian-Peruvian summoned to the Peruvian team.
In social networks, many users accused her of having made fun of the athlete’s physical appearance and even reminded her of her beginnings on television.
However, in the latest edition of Magaly TV, the firm, the ATV driver decided to respond to the criticism and clarified that she only questioned the physical attractiveness of Gianluca Lapadula.
Magaly Medina asserted that she did not use qualifiers such as “ugly” and asked viewers not to distort her words on social networks.
“They told me that I was a trend on Twitter over the weekend. I asked “What do you see as handsome?” That is a subjective opinion. To me what someone looks handsome or ugly, everyone has their opinion. Some I seem ugly to others I seem very beautiful. In this country there is freedom of expression. I’m used to saying what I think and feel, “she said.
“Don’t get me wrong, don’t put words in my mouth that I haven’t said. I said ‘what do they see as handsome’, because he doesn’t look like a Brad Pitt to me, that’s what I mean. You have to listen well. At what moment did I say ugly and everyone repeats like parrots, investigate, watch the video … When a new soccer star emerges, all the drivers come out to say that it is ‘it’s the best, how cute’. But I’m not used to worshiping anyone, “she said.
