“That space allowed me to generate many alliances with various animal protection foundations and with individuals… we rescued a lot, that became a job that I did with all the love. When I received the images that confirmed the mistreatment of this character towards his pet, I broke down … In the heat I said ‘ready, hit him’, what needs to be done, this cannot happen”, Alejandra Azcárate added to her story.
The model reported that at that time, the man filed a tutela action where he alleged that Azcárate had violated his fundamental right to a good name.
“The videos confirm that the pet spent hours, the whole night dead from the cold, shivering on the brick floor… I made the complaint in my space because it is my personal opinion and I have the freedom to do so and when I least expected the man got heated and then he filed a tutelage action against me where he alleged that I had violated his fundamental right to a good name And that’s where this whole situation starts, ”said the comedian in her story.
