More defenses, fewer attacks, the truth is that the controversy has been beneficial for the soap opera, because in recent days its rating has skyrocketed, at least in the United States.
According to the magazine People, this week the story also starring Gabriel Soto registered one and a half million viewers on Univision, a chain that has been broadcasting in the neighboring country for three weeks.
“This Monday, the melodrama broke its audience record by averaging 1,672,000 viewers, its highest mark to date, a figure that was maintained on Tuesday when the telenovela registered 1,610,000 viewers,” says the magazine.
On Monday, February 22, Fátima Molina had written a message on her social networks in which she said she did not know if the telenovela would change its schedule and if the reason for that was her physical appearance, which does not “meet” beauty standards.
“The truth is I have no idea whether or not our telenovela ‘Te acuerdas de me’ will change from primetime, as they say someone commented.”
“I don’t know if it’s just gossip. Much less did I have any idea that some people in the audience They say it’s my fault, it’s physical, because I’m a brunette, because I have a mole under my eye, because I’m not tall, because I’m very Mexican,” the 34-year-old interpreter wrote on her social networks.
“I did not know, I did not know it. But if that becomes real, how sad that in these times for some it is impossible to break with the stereotypes that you yourself as an audience continue to mark for television.”
“If this is true, discrimination will have to be dealt with. Hopefully one day we will open our minds and see diversity in all its aspects on our screens,” commented the actress.
