Like every morning, this Friday Ángel Martín sat down early in front of his computer to record his “morning briefing to save time“, as he calls it. However, this time there was a very important issue that I wanted to address, and that is that this Thursday afternoon The body of Olivia, the missing six-year-old girl with her one-year-old sister, Anna, was found in the sea, on April 27, after their father, Tomás Gimeno, took them away.
“Last night, when I got home, I found myself face to face with the photos of the pups that his father took a few months ago, I feared the worst and, indeed, it was the worst“said the comedian.” Today’s newscast I want to use it for one thing: they are girls, okay? They are girls. “
In this way, the actor wanted to send a message to the media: “Don’t turn this into a championship to see who can tell the most sordid details Or get the most emotional photos and videos so that your audience cries more than the other. Do not camouflage morbid under the label ‘Investigation’ or ‘Last minute’“.
“And I would ask the same of the digital newspapers: they are girls. clickbait to put an advertisement before seeing the video that you have mounted and his fucking mother, do not do that, “he continued.” If you are going to discuss the subject, treat it being fully aware that every word, every video or every image that you decide you are going to use is almost certainly going to be a shot to the heart of the family he just lost her. “
“Put yourself in their place and treat the issue as if the baby that is no longer yours was, Okay? “, He concluded before ending his morning newscast, which has caused numerous applause on social networks to the point that it has turned him this Friday morning into the first trending topic from Spain.
