I don’t have any problem, so that the Conapred is good and discussion is given; I did not participate and already. But don’t cancel the event because that is going to be worse‘. Then it happens that the first lady makes a tweet about it and it all comes down. What a slouch! I never had been discriminated against as well and less of a device designed to avoid prejudice and discrimination,” he said, ” Chumel on how he perceived the nullification of the forum.

First of all the media scandal erupted in recent days around his person, Chumel added that criticism on networks and on the part of the authorities will not affect. What it offends is “that people are killed working on the Commission for Prevention of Discrimination and Racism in Mexico (sic) and the president in the morning he says that we know; imagine working you for opening the freedoms, for the prevention of racism, and in the morning the president says he has no idea what the hell you do“.
The comedy of Chumel Torres
Faced with the question of if you think your comments are offensive to some people, Torres spoke of his comedy: “Its formula (the comedy) is tragedy plus time. You have to use the tragedy. Usually, what I’m talking about in my programs, is issues readable in the sense of policy, people who are corrupt.”
“I’ve mocked (Michael) Barbosa ‘n’ times and offer a public apology if he would not have said that women who kill were with the boyfriend. What I do is a joke, what the lord does is reality. I’ve mocked a thousand times Manuel Bartlett telling her she has the face as the mask sad theater, but he has 24 houses, and the office of the Prosecutor not said anything. We mock each other”, he added.
Chumel also pointed out that The Interviewa funny movie made by the actors Seth Rogen and James Franco in 2014, gives you envy because, but ran into trouble in the united States by the topic addressed – a meeting with the president of North Korea, Kim Jong-Un – Obama supported the tape.

How racist mexico?
Before closing the chat, Lily questioned the youtuber if you believe Mexico is a racist country.

“Yes, it is systematic, it is macho Mexico, it is sexist, it is classist. There’s not a single commentator of news moreno until Amador Narcia… spent years for that to happen; there is not a single starring moreno that is not the role of a criminal or the bad: the same Arellano Felixin the number of drug Traffickers, are put to Diego Luna, the most hot of life. But it is that: blanqueamos to our protagonist“, he added.
Chumel shut down their answers by counting why makes jokes: “Do I make jokes? Yes Are You Offensive? Of course. But I make jokes even: I make fun of the chairo, the fifí, the metalhead, the buchona, and grupero, because I am all of those. For me, in a very strict sense, if we laugh all of ourselves, we join more“.
