Rumor: Tenoch Huerta as Namor for Wakanda Forever: Linked to Terrorists?
Last week, a rumor shared by The Illuminerdi hinted that not only will Namor be coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the upcoming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, but that Marvel’s first mutant will be played by someone relatively unknown to most. comic book audiences: Tenoch Huerta.
Although he is a star on the Netflix show Narcos: Mexico and is expected to appear in the upcoming movie The Forever Purge, personally I was not sure about the cast.
He certainly doesn’t look like the role of Namor, at least physically, which is odd considering how Marvel tends to have their stars ‘look’ at the role of a hero, as evidenced by the respective transformations. from Paul Rudd and Christ Pratt as Ant-Man and Star-Lord (That said, I’m ready to see how things play out).
However, the same will cannot be found among some MCU fans, as the rumor that Huerta will be portrayed as the Atlantean Prince sparked outrage from a particular group of social media critics who wanted to see him removed from the game. movie since it was first announced. for “a nasty role” in the Black Panther sequel last November.
Epicstream has documented a number of Twitter users expressing their disgust at the rumor that the Narcos actor has played the role of the Sub-mariner character.
@scarletnova wrote: “Homophobic, racist and misogynistic NAMOR actor how do you offend everyone ??? Oh brother“
“nvm the man who was introduced as namor is homophobic and a horrible person, the fun is over,” @eIixirgenius said.
@PIXELATEJAKE_ asserted, “I’ve heard rumors that Tenoch Huerta is going to play Namor. The least Marvel can do is pick someone who isn’t homophobic, victim-blaming and racist… please , do better Marvel… ”
Lack of evidence?
As we’ve seen on social media before, whenever a wave of people rush to call someone, there’s usually a lack of receipts to justify fan outrage. In Huerta’s case, all it took was one tweet that was a little too ambiguous to get it labeled somehow.
The tweet in question was posted by Huerta on December 8, 2018 and read, according to a machine translation provided by Google Translate, “Merry Christmas to everyone except the poor, immigrants, homosexuals, trans, feminists, liberals, natives… And if you don’t understand that it’s a joke Not for you either!
Along with this tweet, Huerta also shared an image of an empty nursery captioned: “The far-right nursery, without immigrants, refugees, Arabs and blacks.” Merry Christmas!”
While Huerta’s tweet at first glance seems extremely fanatic, savvy Spanish speakers have pointed out that the post is sarcastic and actually condemns conservative hypocrisy.
Something more to consider
However, the outrage against Huerta’s cast was not limited to her “festive” tweet.
A few other tweets, brought to the attention of user @_LayBB last November when Huerta was announced for Wakanda Forever, document more interesting information from the actor.
“I don’t know who is casting for your @Marvel @Disney movies, but clearly this person didn’t do their homework before casting @TenochHuerta for # BlackPanther2,” @_LayBB wrote. “It only takes a little research on his @Twitter account to show us why. “
As seen in the examples acquired by @_LayBB through their “research on [Huerta]’s @Twitter ”, Huerta’s controversial social media story involves more than just her ambiguous tweet about Feliz Navidad:
In a tweet, Huerta asked, “Why do some feminists insist on showing they have it more than anything?”
In response to Huerta, a fan berated the actor, writing: “I started following you because I admired your work in Güeros, now I am no longer because you attack the women who fight for it. equality. Shame.”
To which Huerta replied easily: “If you don’t see the irony, then good luck measuring your cock with men.”
Besides this interaction, @_LayBB also looked into a number of other aspects of Huerta’s social media posts, such as her violent and abusive language, threats to harm others and, more shockingly, her supposed association. with Spanish terrorists.
By opening this box of verses with the hashtag #DisneyTerrorista, @_LayBB provided a litany of documentation on his own violent speech, state of mind and friendship with a more notorious individual.
In a tweet, Huerta wrote, “I swear on behalf of yisus that when I say things that are ** good holes (almost all the time), I don’t mean to offend anyone; Those offended damn shit lacked spanking like little ones.
Again, this is a rough translation using Google. I’m sure it makes more sense for native Spanish speakers.
“Let them get shot in the back and upside down,” the actor said in another tweet. “Or let them be free for half an hour in a crowded town square.”
Another roughly translates: “Those who say my tweet sounds violent are right. I am sorry that you are offended. I will erase it shortly.
As seen above, @_LayBB noted that Huerta had a friendship with Katu Arkonada, a Spanish Marxist who, according to the Yucatan Times, was “accused of being a Basque terrorist,” a Spanish organization with a long history of fervor. separatist activist in the country.
Not only that, but the Yucatan Times further asserts that Arkonada “is an active activist of the Abertzale left in Euskal Herria, which belongs to the radical Basque nationalism from which ETA emerged (Euskadi Ta Askatasuna du basque, ‘Basque Country and Freedom’) ). ”
Oddly enough, Twitter considers Arkonada so important that the social media platform gave it a blue check mark (normally I would quickly put on my foil hat and start speculating about the relationship Twitter has with people and organizations such as Arkonada, but I digress, as it is best to leave such thoughts to our weekly Black Pill Streams).
So how does Arkonada relate to Huerta? According to social media, the Narcos star is apparently friendly with the separatist, who once described himself as a “tropical, socialist and abortionist terrorist.”
As seen in a correspondence on social networks, Arkonada once warned Huerta, “Be careful that I have a photo with you and that it could appear in the next opposition report during” an unspecified “2021 campaign” and then to come.
Play with fire
That being said, let’s put this information into perspective.
At first glance, it seems Huerta is friends with someone who is both one of Spain’s most notorious Marxists and a suspected collaborator of a known terrorist organization. Not only that, but on social media, Huerta presents himself as a violent and vulgar individual.
So why is Huerta chosen for a Disney / Marvel movie, or even treated in an upward swing in Hollywood? Or more importantly, what’s going on within Disney (and Hollywood as a whole) that they don’t even fear a fleeting association with a militant, Marxist separatist organization?
What do you think of Huerta’s casting, given this wealth of information? What reason do you think Disney, and Hollywood for that matter, have for continuing to remain silent on the issue despite the spread of the #DIsneyTerrorista hashtag?
