After the fighter Halcón Negro Jr. pointed him out for sexual harassment, the producer Hernán Albarenque (the person behind Survivor and MasterChef on TV Azteca), reacted to the accusations through a message on Instagram.
Assured that “1. I already requested an investigation from @Azteca and the Gender Unit. I have nothing to hide. 2. The selection sessions are recorded and there are eyewitnesses in all of them. 3. The selection of the best profiles represents a responsibility with the audience, which sometimes implies relegating those who do not have the greatest potential ”.
It should be remembered that fighter Halcón Negro Jr. reported yesterday, March 21, on his Twitter account who suffered sexual harassment by “a TV producer for a major television station” and that he has already made the corresponding complaint before the competent authorities.
Today it is known that the producer spoken of is Hernán Albarenque, who is in charge of the program Survivor from the first season that ran in 2020.
The wrestler claimed in his post that this producer tricked him into taking off his mask and participating in the show without your work tool as it would look better. He claims that he refused this, which caused him not to enter the project.
“I did not accept because I HAVE VALUES and selling myself sexually does not go with me and because I am only going to lose this mask in the ring because I RESPECT and LOVE FREE WRESTLING”, ended the message where it is known that a judicial process has already begun.
Nevertheless, yesterday the reporter Flor Rubio, through his YouTube channel, cshared a video entitled “The truth about the complaint of Black Hawk Jr. about harassment in casting of Survivor”. In which he interviews producer Albarenque and he pleaded not guilty to the accusations.
In this situation, The fighter, along with his team of lawyers (Abogados CUR) and his team of managers (Fragsali) issued a statement in which they ask the journalist to refrain from publishing or sharing information since a process is in progress.
