Eduardo Yáñez Breaks Silence On Slapping Reporter

Eduardo Yáñez is breaking his silence after one week and following his violence against the Univision reporter Paco Fuentes during a red carpet event. The telenovela star appeared on “El Gordo y La Flaca” to apologize for slapping the journalist and explained the reason behind the incident. “Nobody has forced me to come here and talk to you as nobody obligates me to write on Twitter or anywhere esle,” he said during the interview. “I want to apologize to Paco as my behaviour was not right. I am in agreement with all of you, the public, the press and everyone else that is now talking about me. My behaviour was not right, I just felt that Paco got involved in a subject that is way too personal to me, it’s too sensitive. It’s about defending my family and not allowing them to touch my son. At that moment I thought he was very insistent and I perceived it even making light of the situation regarding my son and I couldn’t handle it, I lost.”

“I asked in a very respectful and educated tone that I wasn’t going to talk about my personal life and he insisted because I can only imagine that that’s his nature or what they obligate him to ask,” he added. “I also want to apologize to all of my actor collegues that were there that didn’t need to presence something so unpleasant. I know have to take some time, return to my country and with the people that love and know me. I may need to look for help and start over because I am human, I make errors because I am a son of God. I need to work on myself and I am taking a big lesson from all of this. I will not put my head down, I will not talk about my personal life.”

The Univision co-hosts circled it back to Paco Fuentes and Yáñez reiterated his apologies to Paco Fuentes. “I apologize to you Paco because I think you got involved in something that doesn’t involve you and you took a side in all of this,” he said. “I apologize because there are other ways of responding and saying things.”

Eduardo Yáñez Jr. has also weighed in on the incident after his followers asked him about it on social media. “It’s very bad,” he wrote. “The video speaks for itself. Poor reporter he didn’t deserve that.” Paco Fuentes, the aggravated journalist, received en e-mail from the telenovelas star’s son, which was revealed on the Univision gossip show. Another user on the social network commended him for reaching out. “Yeah, I sent him an email,” he responded. “I felt bad for someone having to go through something like that, it’s very demoralizing and embarrassing.”

Univision released a statement after the video went viral. “Univision News, the award-winning news division of Univision Communications Inc. (UCI), the leading media company serving Hispanic America, condemns the act of violence perpetrated on October 10 by Eduardo Yáñez on Univision reporter Paco Fuentes”, the statement reads. “Univision News demands respect for the physical safety of its reporters and expresses complete disapproval of any senseless act of violence against them. Censorship and acts of violence against journalists are reproachable no matter the source.”
