This past Wednesday, Mr. Kennedy and Carlito caused a bit of controversy during a WWE press conference in Panama promoting a show on July 4. During the press conference, the two Raw stars behaved in character by insulting the women of Panama. Kennedy said, "We thought we would see beautiful girls here; still, we have seen none. In fact, you can’t tell them apart from the men." Carlito added, "I don’t agree with Mr. Kennedy. After women in England, the USA, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, etc. then come the Panamanians." Their comments caused a stir and now there is a serious news story on the situation on a Panama news site. You can view the article at this http://www.prensa.com. The article is in Spanish, so here is a rough translation of it:
WWE wrestlers insult Panamanian women
The wrestlers Carlitos [sic] and Mr. Kennedy created controversy yesterday, Wednesday, during the promotion for the Raw Summerslam [tour] event, which will take place July 4 at the Figali Convention Center.
During the press conference they did not respect Panamanian women and the country in general.
"We thought we would see beautiful girls here; still, we have seen none. In fact, you can’t tell them apart from the men," said Mr. Kennedy.
Carlitos [sic] supported his opinion and added some additional things.
"I don’t agree with Mr. Kennedy. After women in England, the USA, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, etc. then come the Panamanians."
A fan took the opportunity to ask if they had any plans of buying a summer home in Panama, and they shuddered in response.
"Not at all. I have no intention of buying a house in Panama, since this country is a cheap rip off of Puerto Rico," indicated Carlitos [sic], a native of said country.
"The beaches in Puerto Rico are better," he noted.
Carlitos [sic], who during his appearances always chews on an apple and spits it at his rival, added one more insult.
"Are these apples? (in reference to the size of the fruit) Here in Panama everything is small," he stated before throwing the apples on the floor, creating disgust among all those present at the press conference.
