Multiple Spanish-language sites are now reporting that Tenoch Huerta, who starred as Namor the Submariner in Marvel Studios' Black Panther: Wakanda Forever last year, has just been accused of sexual assault by saxophonist María Elena Ríos, who labeled him a "sexual predator" in a series of tweets tonight.
Rios initially called out the Poder Prieto collective - of which Huerta has connections to - for publishing a podcast episode that she did not consent to be released as they had not paid her for her contribution. She continued to lash out at the collective, which also experienced a similar controversy of not paying talent earlier this year, before accusing them of defending and protecting Huerta, who she repeatedly refers to as a "violent sexual predator."
In another tweet, she says that Poder Prieto protected Huerta's image through the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and that they actively sought her out during one of her concerts, in an effort to keep her quiet during the film's release window to avoid any PR issues.
Rios also answers a few commentators and seemingly confirms that she was sexually assaulted by Huerta and that there are several other victims as well. She also tells another user that she is in no rush to provide details, but implies that additional information will be out in due time, presumably from her or as more victims come forward.
Since details are still forthcoming, it would be advisable not to jump to any definitive conclusions just yet. CBM will continue to monitor the situation as it develops and provide updates once further information emerges.
