After tweeting a call to assassinate Andrés Manuel López Obrador, two Mexican media outlets cut ties with the journalist, Ricardo Alemán
Two Mexican media outlets have cut ties with a prominent journalist after he appeared to call on supporters of presidential hopeful Andrés Manuel López Obrador to assassinate the left-wing candidate.
Ricardo Alemán tweeted Saturday: “John Lennon was killed by a fan. Versace was killed by a fan. Selena was killed by a fan. Now’s the time chairos” – using a word many on Mexico’s right use to disparage supporters of López Obrador, candidate of the leftist Morena party in July’s election.
