Mexican boxer Dario Larralde has published a two-minute video on his social networks expressing extreme homophobic opinions, as well as quoting former Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.
“Fuck me fucking gays, I have a fucking phobia … everywhere I go there’s always a gay punk watching me … Everything your community does, everything you do, everything you represent, shits me , I will never accept it. I know that Hitler was a bad person, but in that I support him. The plague gays are a pest”
In his official account on the Instagram, Dario Larralde says in his biography that he is therepresentative of the Mexican national team at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. (The Mexican Olympic Committee (IOC) has denied that Larralde is part of the Aztec team that will go to Tokyo.)
Larralde later deleted his videos after being called out and apologized via his Twitter account. Mexican actor Luis Gerardo Méndez, called for the intervention of governmental bodies in charge of sanctions and discriminatory acts to penalize him.
“It is unacceptable for someone like that to represent Mexico in the @Optional Games.” Hate speech and the ignorance of @dario_larralde can not coexist with a party that celebrates friendship, brotherhood and inclusion, and zero tolerance for hate speech. Luis Gerardo Méndez.
Conductor Iván Pasillas also commented.
“This man @dario_larralde goes beyond homophobia, he is talking about genocide, calling the #LGBTQ community a” plague “and on top of that he will represent Mexico in the @juegosolimpicos. @CONAPRED @COPRED_CDMX what is the process?” conductor Iván Pasillas.
