Actress Laura Zapata criticized the president of the National Association of Actors (ANDA), Jesús Ochoa, after he met with the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, this after both met to celebrate the use of a flag that the actor would have used in 2006, when he faced Felipe Calderón.
Laura Zapata has taken the role of being an assiduous critic of the president and his followers, to such a degree that she has even named her Twitter account as “Laura Zapata / Out Chairos I block them”, and showing that in his political positions in the constant contents in which he shows his support for the politicians of the opposition parties.
But in his constant criticism of the acting guild there is an iron stance against the actor Jesús Ochoa, whom he has criticized for his handling of ANDA. Specifically, the tweet addressed it as follows:
As such, a pair of corrupt #JesusOchoa has left our beloved #ANDA in enemy hands of actors, looting, without authorization from the Assembly, the retirement fund that by statute is prohibited. What disdain, our national flag in the hands of licentious people. Upside down and scratched
The actress’s comment was controversial and immediately caused both comments in favor and against the actress, since both followers of Jesús Ochoa and Andrés Manuel López Obrador attacked her as did their opponents.
It is known that Laura is a sympathizer of movements such as FRENAA and has openly declared against the policies and reforms that have been focused on Andrés Manuel López Obrador, in fact, has published content to support the movement led by Gilberto Lozano:
Let’s support those ofOfficerFrenaaa in another of his great effortslopezobrador_ we don’t want you XXXXX #LopezMexicoTeRepudia #lopezVsEJERCITO #LopezAbandonoATabasco #LopezAsesinoConfeso #LopezElPeorPresidenteDelMundo
Andrés Manuel López Obrado himself announced that he had met with Ochoa to talk about said movement, when the actor offered him support after suffering defeat in the 2006 presidential elections.
I spoke with Jesús Ochoa, general secretary of the National Association of Actors (ANDA). This flag was waved in one of the marches, in 2006, when we were fighting for democracy. Today we are forced to turn that ideal into reality
The problems between Jesús Ochoa and Laura Zapata are not recent since it was ANDA itself who accused Zapata of having used part of the fund for a millionaire diversion of resources when he was part of the association, in the company of controversial leaders such as Lety Rodríguez and Lilia Aragón.
And is that the actress was accused of embezzlement of funds from the union after the disappearance of 21 million pesos, something that Zapata herself has dismissed and refuted ensuring that she is not responsible for said disappearance of resources. So says another of the tweets that Zapata dedicated to Jesús Ochoa:
Another conflict that ANDA has is with the so-called Casa del Actor, dedicated to serving as lodging for retired artists who require assistance. and to whom a monthly payment of almost 950 thousand pesos was covered to be able to cover expenses.
However, it was in February of this year when the conflict occurred after Ochoa requested a transparency to review what said amount was being invested in and compare it with the expenses, something that the Casa del Actor did not deliver. It was then when the president of ANDA decided to withhold said amounts in order to make said content transparent.
