The controversy that arose after the kiss of Luis Rubiales to Jennifer Hermoso continues to make headlines. In the last hours, there are many celebrities who have come forward to denounce the behavior of the president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), especially this Friday, after he himself announced that he does not intend to leave his position and that What happened in the World Cup final was "spoiled". Many recognized faces have positioned themselves next to Hermoso, and not only related to the sphere of soccer, but also from the world of television and communication. This is the case of the presenter María Patiño or the journalist Mercedes Milá.
The controversy reached its peak this Friday, after the Extraordinary Assembly, which was attended by many of the most prominent faces of Spanish football. There Rubiales assured that the kiss with Hermoso was consented. "We had very affectionate moments in this concentration. The moment Jenni appeared, she picked me up from the ground and we almost fell. And when she left me on the ground, we hugged. She took me up and we hugged. I told her she'll forget about the penalty I told her that we had won the World Cup thanks to her. She replied that she was a crack. I said 'a little bit?' And she said, 'okay,'" he would say.
Hours later, the soccer player issued two statements in which she denied the version that the President had given. She first did it in one together, signed by more than eighty other players. Subsequently, she issued another one individually. Jenni then denied that there was any conversation between her and Rubiales like the one he explained. "Not much less her kiss was consented," said the player of the Pachuca Femenil de México.
Many recognized faces have shown their support for the player from Madrid in recent hours. From professional soccer players, like Borja Iglesias or Hector Belleín, to singers, like Alejandro Sanz or Lola Índigo. But she has not stopped here, since this support has also occurred in the television field. Through her X account (formerly Twitter), María Patiño charged against Rubiales this Friday, assuring that "the misogynist macho never retracts. He portrays himself." But there has still been someone more forceful: Mercedes Milá.
The journalist, always very clear, has charged hard against the still President of the Spanish Federation. "There are human beings who float like a crap in the water; there is no way to sink them. This is the case of Rubiales, a former soccer player who reached the top of this sport in the offices, and, these days, due to a slip that made him defines, we are learning which were the steps of his ladder", said Milá, through an Instagram post.
"No matter how much all the misdeeds that this bird has committed were proven, it would not be dismissed, which is what has to happen. It would not be because it has accumulated many compromised recorded images, among many other things, because when the mafia takes you in, you usually get rid of all evil," he said. Milá reminded him that "the whole world is asking for his resignation." "But he, as he has said 3 times, in front of those who incomprehensibly applauded him, is not going to resign. He earns almost 1 million a year and it's very cold outside," he criticized.
"We cannot call this gesture of power a kiss to an excellent player like all the others in this magical women's team. This uncontrolled "grace" is covering up the feat of Spain without letting our soccer players enjoy the product of their sacrifices with full hands. and his endless hours of training. That's why we shouldn't let them happen", he sentenced, making it clear that he supports Jennifer and that Rubiales' behavior should not go unpunished.
