People across social media are clutching their pearls at the recent allegations against Black Panther: Wakanda Forever movie star Tenoch Huerta. The Wakanda Forever actor, who starred as Namor, has been labeled a “sexual predator” by saxophonist Maria Elena Ríos online. The musician poured out her experience in a Twitter post.

While lashing out at the Poder Prieto collective, a Mexico-based group of creatives working to combat racism in the entertainment industry, Ríos accused the organization of protecting Huerta, a “violent sexual predator” Comic Book Movie reported

“It is very difficult to talk about the emotional abuse and abuse of power of a sexual predator who is loved in the world for playing a character in a movie like @TenochHuerta,” Ríos said. 

She also attacked Huerta’s character, saying he was “Charming in appearance, the great hallmark of a narcissist + a good helping of victimization.”

Her series of Tweets began as she denounced the infrastructure of the Poder Prieto collective, citing racism and monetary disputes. Ríos and Huerta are associated with the collective, relating to why she’d say that the collective “protected” the Black Panther actor.
