Tenoch Huerta and María Elena Ríos were both part of Poder Prieto, an organization that focuses on combating racism in Mexico. In a series of tweets written in Spanish, Ríos claimed that she was trying to distance herself from this organization as she believes that they pursued her for the sole purpose of avoiding a scandal, with the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever being very close at the time.

“I made it very clear to them when I left their sect that they protect the violator and s*xual PREDATOR of Tenoch Huerta that they not publish anything about me. They still went to look for me at a hypocritical ball concert to avoid scandals over their Marvel movie.” She stated in a series of tweets translated from Spanish, “It is very difficult to talk about the emotional abuse and abuse of power of a s*xual predator who is loved in the world for playing a character in a movie like Tenoch Huerta. Charming in appearance, the great hallmark of a narcissist + a good helping of victimization”.

She then went on to accuse Huerta of being a “violent and s*xual predator”, also accusing him of abusing his power. She even claimed that he had done this to many other people.
