“I, Luisa Echeverría, queen of the Mexican Charrería Federation, address you @christianchavezreal, with all the respect and admiration that I have for being you and your companions a group of successful Mexicans who have transcended borders in the name of Mexico; With this same respect, I invite you to wear our clothing, that of the charros, according to our canons. and that you allow us to be recognized in the world through your art also for the elegance of our costumes”, said the woman from her Instagram profile.
Faced with all the criticism and the statement from the Mexican Charrería Federation, Chávez decided to go out and defend himself.
“Many people were offended by wearing a suit that is not a charro suit, I want to clarify, the charro suit has other characteristics and obviously… the only thing I am doing is this video for the people who felt offended, I am very sorry. It is not a charro suit, I am not a charro, it is simply an interpretation of Mexicanness. It’s a show, I’m not a charro, this is not a charro competition… If they felt attacked, I’m sorry, but at no time is it like this, ”Chávez commented through a video on his Instagram account.
