After the Spanish singer Rosalía stated that she had been fascinated after trying the typical Mexican dish known as aguachiles, the head of government of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaum, announced that the interpreter known as the “Motomami” would offer a free concert in the emblematic Zócalo of Mexico City, in Mexico.
Before the announcement of said presentation, the Mexicans did not hesitate to meet on April 28, where Rosalía packed the streets surrounding the Zócalo of the capital, delighting the public with some of her most successful musical themes. However, not everything was good for the Spaniard during her visit, since she could pay a financial penalty and even end up in jail for modifying the Mexican flag.
The day after her presentation, Rosalía made a publication on her social networks, where, through various photographs both of her presentation and with some newspapers that covered the news, as well as the welcome phrase they gave her at the hotel, she thanked to all those present for having attended what he called one of the happiest days of his life and the greatest concert he has given in his career.
But one of the images that most caught the attention of network users was the one in which he is seen posing with a series of Dr. Simi dolls with the Mexican flag in the background, which, despite the fact that said photograph was taken in 2022, it sparked controversy and annoyance among many people who were offended because the national symbol is marked with the word “Motomami”.
The law establishes that it is considered an infraction to alter or modify the characteristics of the national flag, to use the national emblem without authorization, the penalty ranges from six months to four years in prison or a fine of 53 thousand pesos, or both sanctions, in the opinion of a judge.
The image did not take long to go viral on networks, where it generated endless comments and videos from people who demand that the Spanish singer be punished for her fault, since it is very clear to everyone that when a person insults a national symbol they must face a fine, either economic or, in the worst case, being arrested for the time determined by the authorities.
In the case of Rosalía, according to article 191 of the Federal Criminal Code, the fine for altering or modifying the Mexican flag could be economic, paying the amount of 53 thousand pesos or, in the worst case, going to prison, either for six months or up to four years.
So far, neither the singer nor the media have said anything about whether the authorities will fine the interpreter of get rid ofwhat is certain is that his act generated a debate among users on social networks, because while some demand that he be punished for offending a national symbol, others have come out in his defense, assuring that he did not do it with the desire to insult the country.
