Natalie Viscuso, Superman’s 31-year-old lover, was at the center of the controversy over photos from 13 years ago. During a trip to Namibia as part of an MTV reality show, the girl participated in an indigenous tribe initiation rite, for which she dyed her skin. The network considered it the most horrible manifestation of racism and called Natalie to account for her actions.
A wave of outrage has reached Henry Cavill, who is currently starring in the second season of The Witcher. Netflix, the streaming platform responsible for the series, has already received threats from angry fans demanding that the actor be stripped of his role because of the high-profile incident. There is even a petition to that effect online. Henry has not commented on the situation, but Natalie has already apologized.
“I would like to apologize if the publicized photos offended anyone,” MailOnline quoted Viscuso as saying. – The tribe I lived in had painted my skin for an initiation rite and acceptance into their culture. I never thought it would offend anyone. In fact, I was flattered that they initiated me. But given the lessons we are learning in today’s world, it is important to be aware of the potential harm. My deepest and most sincere apologies.”
