Marvel Studios are stuck in another controversy as Black Panther: Wakanda Forever star Tenoch Huerta has been accused of sexual assault by Mexican saxophonist Maria Elena Rios. In a series of social media posts, Rios claimed the Namor actor is a “sexual predator” who has been protected by anti-racism group Poder Prieto after she claimed the group published a podcast featuring her without paying her. When they disputed the musician and activist’s version of events she said they were simply protecting Huerta.

The accounts and details are yet to see any kind of reaction from Huerta, but have already attracted a lot of attention on social media from Marvel fans making comparisons between this case and the recent issues faced by Jonathan Majors, who is still caught up in claims that he assaulted his girlfriend back in March. In the post made by Rios in her native Spanish, she said:

"I made it very clear to them when I left their group that they protect the violent and sexual PREDATOR of @TenochHuerta that they did not publish anything about me. They still went to look for me at a concert of hypocrites to avoid scandals for their @MarvelLATAM movie.”

She expanded on this in a subsequent post, in which she continued to say:

"It is very difficult to talk about the emotional abuse and abuse of power of a sexual predator who is loved in the world for playing a movie character like @TenochHuerta. Charming in appearance, the great hallmark of a narcissist + a good helping of victimization.'And why didn't you report?' They say those who live in a macho country, where justice is unattainable where they almost kill you and still they don't believe you or justice comes. And no, I don't want to be famous. And no, I don't want money because I know how to work."

First Jonathan Majors, and now Tenoch? I really hope this isn't true, because if it is, we have another talented performer who's about to screw up his career due to his own ego.
