AnyClip – Ozuna Addresses Extortion Plot During Billboard Latin Music Week Q&A, Apologizes Again

Ozuna fans were shocked at the beginning of the year when they heard about an extortion plot that was consuming the reggaetonero. The singer was paying tens of thousands of dollars to keep the extorter from releasing sexually explicit videos of Ozuna when he was a teenager. Despite apologizing in January, Ozuna apologized to fans again at his Billboard Latin Music Week Q&A.

Ozuna used his Billboard Latin Music Week Q&A to address his fans on an ongoing controversy.

Ozuna started his 45-minute long Q&A with Leia Cobo by directly addressing his fans about the extortion drama. He candidly used his own experience to speak to his fans about the importance of owning up to your action and past.

“People say you don’t have to apologize. Of course, I have to apologize,” Ozuna told Cobo during his Q&A.

The young musician admitted that he felt his fans deserved an explanation for his actions.

For Ozuna, the apologies he has released for the extortion plot were necessary to thank those who stand behind him. Regardless of the fame and success he has experienced, he knows the importance of being open with his fans and the necessity of giving them the most honest representation of who he is.

The singer is most appreciative for his family, who are his biggest supporters.

“My family, my wife and my kids, they know who I am,” Ozuna told the audience when answering a question about balancing negative and positive news coverage. “As long as we are with god we have nothing to fear.”

“Life is balance. It is positive and negative balance. I am not the only person who has been born with difficulties. There are errors that you make when you’re young,” Ozuna added. “I am still a human.”

This is the second time Ozuna has apologized because of the extortion plot.

“Like many young people, I made a mistake, fueled by ignorance,” Ozuna wrote. “Today, I’m not only sorry for what happened, but I condemn it. That’s why I looked for help and I am certain everything will be cleared. Likewise, I’m following the process and am always willing to collaborate with authorities to prevent the evil that resulted from this big mistake. More importantly, I ask my family for forgiveness. They are my life’s priority and I will continue to fight for them always.”

Shortly after his apology, it was announced that late LGBTQ+ trap artist Kevin Fret was behind the extortion.

Kevin Fret’s death at the beginning of the year set off a firestorm of fear and anger within the LGBTQ+ community. Fret was shot and killed while riding his motorbike through San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Ozuna’s team came forward and admitted that Fret was the man behind the extortion plot threatening Ozuna’s career unless he got payments from the singer. However, Ozuna’s manager, after meeting with the San Juan District Attorney, said Ozuna was in no way implicated in the tragic death. Yet, Fret’s mother is adamant that Ozuna is responsible for her son’s death.

“I know that it was him [Ozuna] who ordered my son to be killed, together with Vicente Saavedra,” Hild Rodriguez, Fret’s mother, told Samantha Love on her radio show in April 2019. “Ozuna carries this in his conscience.”

Fans came out strong to support Ozuna during this time and defended him on social media.

There is nothing funny about extortion based on sexually explicit material. That is revenge porn, a form of pornography that is being outlawed and turned into a felony offense in several states in the U.S. Not to mention that the video of Ozuna is allegedly him as a minor and has serious criminal implications if it would be released.

Telling consumers through a series of ads that not all meals have to be so happy.

An ad included in Burger King’s Real Meals campaign captures different people experience various struggles just feeling their feels. This all while singing to the franchise’s “Have It Your Way” tune.

“Not everybody wakes up happy. Sometimes you feel sad, scared, crappy,” one sad character sings in the video.

And releasing a series of five mood-inspired meals.

Burger King’s newest Real Meals come in five different forms: Yaaas Meal, DGAF Meal, Salty Meal, Pissed Meal, and Blue Meal.

Share your Results:

Users online are responding to the ad with a WHOLE lot of feels and realness.

As one user pointed out, the franchise really missed the mark when they decided to create music video about people feeling sad and then proceded to give their Unhappy Meals colloquial names.

Including ones on how Burger King can help their employees address their own mental health issues.

FYI the typical Burger King Team Member salary is $8.30 per hour.

Some are even highlighting how poor eating can affect mental health.

And we all know those “Real Meals” which are loaded with whopper burgers aren’t here doing wonders for your physical health.

In fact people were pretty offended.

Because… how bad does capitalism have to get that Burger King starts using mental health to promote their menu?

And of course, tons of Latinos had some pretty fun things to say.

And just about everyone is upset Burger King wont be including a toy in this one at the LEAST.

And some took the time to break down the real problems with the ad.

Burger King’s Real Meals include a Whopper sandwich, fries and a drink and will be available in select locations.
