Marbelle insists that she has not been racist and in responding to the trills in which she is insulted, with insults and ridicule, a fight on Twitter that could affect her professional life, since one of her shows in Pasto fell.
Marbelle will no longer perform in Pasto in a concert that she would give on May 7, the organizers reported it on Wednesday night, and in Villavicencio the indignation against the singer also grows and they ask that she not appear at ExpoMalocas, the controversy over alleged racism after pointing to Francia Márquez from ‘king kong’?
In Pasto, event organizers responded that the event was canceled due to “force majeure.”
For several days through social networks, the artist was being asked not to appear in the Nariño capital, because they feel offended by several of her messages on Twitter.
They point to the Valle del Cauca artist as ‘incendiary’, and the harshness with which she thinks about politics or about some public figure, because they point out her messages are “racist”, discriminatory and offensive.
Now the other Marbelle show is in the spotlight, at ExpoMalocas it must be presented, and although that contract is still standing, the movement rejecting its presentation is growing.
With the message “it promotes racism” they ask that they not hire her with public resources.
And it is that it has been revealed on social networks that the papo for this event would be more than 100 million pesos.
The Marbelle show is very “on top” so they believe that it would not be suspended, however, in the capital of Meta there is discomfort.
I like the music of Marbella but the racism it promotes is horrible, its political position is personal, attacking a person because of their skin color is VIOLENCE.
In Meta there are black men and women who deserve respect, @GobMeta unpleasant to promote racism in ExpoMalocas.

The fight for Francia Márquez
In a Twitter message and later in a vice-presidential debate, Francia Márquez responded to the controversial tweets from Marbelle, in which he described her as King Kong; Although the artist has not talked about the color of her skin, neither she nor she has made the issue of racism explicit, for many, if they are racist messages and they have even filed two criminal complaints against her.
The artist had written: “The mamertos will never understand that it is not a matter of color… that lady terrifies me (…)”.
Márquez, Gustavo Petro’s vice-presidential formula for the Historical Pact, had not spoken directly about the singer, and did so a few hours ago.
“Racism not only hurts, but also kills. Racism not only harms us, but it harms those who express it because it is not allowed to build from love and difference. TO @Marbelle30 lI send an ancestral hug so that it heals and we build from the difference, “he wrote.
He answered the same thing during a debate when Vicky Dávila asked him about that controversy.
Although the leader from Cauca was also asked about the message from Gustavo Bolívar who “tried” to defend her and that a photo of King Kong with a message, she has not mentioned it.
And the artist, a former MasterChef Celebrity participant, also replied: “I don’t buy his lies.”
“And I return your ancestral hug so that you keep it,” he replied and told him that he does not present it, “do not come to me with the cheap speech with which you want to deceive people.”
