Open letter to Pablo Veron:
What happened to Civility?
We leave in a very sad world: day after day we hear about scandals regarding celebrities misbehaving terribly in the media!
The latest Pablo Veron incident is yet an other example!
It did not get that publicized, because outside of the Tango world nobody has even heard of him, but for some of us who enjoy the dance tremendously we are very disappointed and sadden by the disrespectful behavior he demonstrated!
And yet we enable people like him to misbehave so badly because we consider them for bad reasons a sort of a God above us!
This man slapped and then through on the floor a female dancer that had the “audacity” to ask him for a dance in a very witty way: “Can I have a Tango lesson, please?”
Not only PV has no sense of humor whatsoever but also he is an animal: what happened to the response: “no thank you” there is absolutely no excuse for this attack!
A man should never use violence against a woman.
We women must learn how to say “no” to dancers we do not wish to dance with: if we had to slap and through on the floor every man that we do not want to dance with, the ER would be filled with these poor guys!
The fact that we enable celebrities like him to treat women like that is absolutely wrong. Had he been a regular guy, he would have not gotten away with the same treatment!
Pablo Veron you should publically apologize to this woman: that will make you not only a great dancer but also a better man!
On top of that, there is plenty of good anger management treatment available to people like you who need help!
I encourage everybody in the Tango world to boycott PV until he does those 2 things
