Spring breakers atraen críticas por entonar en México “¡Construyan ese muro!”

La conducta reciente de algunos vacacionistas de primavera en Cancún, México ha provocado críticas.
Un grupo de estudiantes norteamericanos estaban a bordo del barco The Pirate Ship, una atracción bien conocida en Cancún donde la gente pasea para ver un espectáculo. Repentinamente, el grupo de los jóvenes empezó a entonar: “¡Construyan ese muro!”.
Otros de los pasajeros empezaron a quejarse, pero el vitoreo no se detuvo. Un artículo publicado recientemente en el periódico El Yucatan Times contó la historia de un matrimonio que estaban a bordo del barco y se sintieron molestos por la conducta de los estudiantes.
“Hoy estaba yo con Suly, mi esposa (quien es originaria de México) mirando el show en la costa de Cancún a bordo de un bote -y al final del show, un grupo de norteamericanos (quizás bajo la influencia de alcohol o quizás no) empezaron a vitorear la infame frase “¡Construyan ese muro!” y cada vez se hizo más y más alto”, fue citado  Anaximandro Amable por El Yucatan Times.
Suly Amable dijo que no supo cómo reaccionar. Ella criticó la conducta, diciendo que era irreal.
En los medios sociales, mucha gente ha descrito el incidente como un ejemplo del “lenguaje discriminatorio” que ha sido promovido por el presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump.


Spring breakers draw criticism for chanting “Build that wall!” in Mexico

By Chara

The recent behavior of some spring breakers in Cancun, Mexico, has drawn criticism.
A group of U.S. students were aboard The Pirate Ship, a well-known attraction in Cancun that people ride to see an entertainment show. Suddenly, the group of spring breakers started a chant: “Build that wall!”
Others passengers began complaining, but the chanting didn’t stop. An article published recently El Yucatan Times told the story of a husband and wife who were aboard the ship and were annoyed by the students’ behavior.
“Today I was with Suly, my wife (who is a native of Mexico), watching an entertainment show off the coast of Cancun aboard a boat – and at the end of the show, a flock of Americans (maybe under the influence of alcohol or maybe not) began to sing the infamous “Build that wall!” chant louder and louder,” Anaximandro Amable was quoted by El Yucatan Times as saying.
Suly Amable said she didn’t know how to react. She criticized the behavior, saying it was surreal.
On social media, many people have described the incident as an example of “discriminatory speech” that has been promoted by U.S. President Donald Trump.
