The youtuber of Venezuelan origin based in Mexico known as David Show has caused tremendous controversy after he published a video violating the quarantine and buying in a supermarket despite knowing that he is positive for the coronavirus.
Faced with strong criticism and possible imprisonment for his action branded as irresponsible, the young comedian publicly apologized and assured that he never intended to harm. He added that he took the necessary precautions to avoid infecting others.
"I assume my mistake and hope you can apologize. I again extend to the people of Mexico that my actions were not adequate at the time we are living, but I would never do anything to intentionally hurt someone,”he wrote in his letter of apology.
In his letter, the young comedian also accused the mayor of Benito Juárez, part of Mexico City, of having discriminated against him and reported having received alleged threats after being publicly pointed out.
While the mayor's office revealed through their social networks the presentation of a complaint against the influencer for "possible crime of danger of contagion". If found guilty, he faces a sentence of three months to three years in prison, plus a fine.
In the original video posted on his YouTube channel, David walked into a supermarket with his glove and mask to buy a frozen pizza and soda. Then he went into another store and bought more food.
"'So what are you doing on the street?' They will say: 'You are crazy, you are irresponsible.' I am going to the supermarket because I need to stock up and I am on a schedule where I know there are almost no people to avoid any contact, "he said at the time.
