When red-carpet reality becomes a soap opera.
A Mexican soap star took offense to a question asked by a reporter on a red carpet in Hollywood Tuesday and decided to haul off and slap the journalist. The resulting hit is going viral.
The telenovela star, Eduardo Yanez, slapped Univision personality Paco Fuentes, after the latter reportedly asked a question about Yanez’s son.
Fellow entertainment reporter Lupita Herrera was at the event and had just spoken with Yanez moments before the actor slapped the Univision reporter. Yanez has a reputation for getting combative with journalists.
Fuentes and Yanez were reportedly chatting peacefully just moments before the slap.
The question that set him off: Why Yanez’s son had reportedly set up a GoFundMe page to pay for a car he had crashed, when he could’ve gone to his father for assistance.
