When Samuel García reproached his wife for “showing a lot of leg”

Rodríguez is a fashion and beauty influencer, so she uses social media constantly. However, during a video in which she was wearing pajamas, the then senator asked her to raise the camera so that she did not show her legs, to which she replied that it was only her knees.
“I married you for me, not for you to be teaching,” Samuel tells her, to which she replies with “sorry”.
After the video went viral, Samuel García stated that It was a “macho joke” for which he offered an apology to his wife and the women.
“Sexist jokes are a bad habit that many men have and that we have to get rid of. I already apologized to Mariana and I appreciate that they point out this type of attitude. They are not correct and they have to stop,” he wrote on his Twitter account.
