Marvel Actor Accused of Sexual Assault

today12 June 2023


Uh-oh! Looks like Tenoch Huerta, who famously played Namor in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has landed in hot water after musician Maria Elena Rios publicly accused him of sexual assault. ‘

The saxophonist and activist called the Marvel actor a “sexual predator” and laments on the difficulties on speaking out against a man with power.

“It’s very difficult to talk about the emotional abuse and the abuse of power of a sexual predator who is loved around the world for playing a character in a movie such as Tenoch Huerta,” Ríos tweeted on Saturday.

Previously, Jonathan Majors — another Marvel star — was arrested on assault, strangulation and harassment charges.
