Once again, a comedian from the country is once again at the center of controversy, due to some derogatory comments related to the population of the department of Chocó. This time it is the comedian Gabriel Murillo who, in the middle of his show called ‘En La Olla’, made a rating about the Pacific region.

“For example, my mom gets me into trouble all the time. I don’t like visiting my mom because her apartment is clean all the time and my apartment is disgusting, my apartment smells disgusting; My friends say that my apartment smells like Chocó and I think it does a little. I have never been to Chocó but I think it must smell like defeated Yogo Yogo; How strange Chocó must smell,” were the words of Gabriel Murillo in his presentation.

On previous occasions, Murillo had already made jokes in this same way to departments such as Antioquia and the Caribbean, where he referred to this population as linked to the “perico”, the “guerrilla” and “paramilitarism”.

At the beginning of the program that is seen through his YouTube channel, the comedian begins by making the following statement:

“I warn you at once, that this show is very strange because everything you are going to see is false, but everything you are going to hear is true.”

The comments on social networks did not wait, as it opened the debate and the controversy of whether in “black humor”, where the dynamics of Gabriel Murillo is pigeonholed, one must reach “prejudices and stigmatization” to be part of routine and cause fun, even the governor of Chocó herself referred to the fact, more precisely on a date where ‘Afro-Colombian Day’ is celebrated.

“The elders of Chocó in their wisdom have always taught us to fight against ignorance because “ignorance is daring.” Only ignorance could lead you to buy applause by denigrating a territory like Chocó and denigrating its people. Chocó smells like the salt of two seas, the magic of whales and dolphins, the life of the mangrove, the strength of the jungle; Chocó smells of the miracle of its rivers, of rooftop herbs in the food, of the rhythm of its dances, of raindrops. El Chocó smells of the work of its people, of their desire to move forward amid so many difficulties. Chocó smells of immensity and community, of values ​​and tradition. “El Chocó smells of respect for others,” says the official, who ends by pointing to the comedian:

“Evidently Gabriel Murillo has never come to Chocó. He just decided to fall into the cliché of ignorance and market it as “comedy.” I hope one day I can come to treat him with the dignity that we know how to provide in all our towns.”
