Paquita La Del Barrio Schedules 'Apology Event' at Gay Disco
Mexican singer Paquita La Del Barrio, who outraged many last week with an interview in which she said that she would rather see a child die of hunger in the street than be adopted by a gay couple, is now sorry for her remarks, the L.A. Times reports:
"The singer's apology event, set for Tuesday afternoon, will take place at Spartacus, a huge gay disco in Ciudad Nezahualcoyotl, the sprawling Mexico City suburb sometimes referred to as 'Neza York.' The singer is a longtime friend of the club's owner. In one interview since the controversy erupted, Paquita said her comments were rooted in her 'poor education' and small-town upbringing. (She isn't called Paquita la del Barrio -- or, 'Paquita from the 'Hood' -- for nothing.) In another short interview, she told reporters that 'the majority' of her friends are gay. 'I don't have anything against anyone,' Paquita said."
