A few days ago, the Argentine actress Thelma Fardin came out and accused fellow actor Juan Darthés of raping her in a Nicaragua hotel bedroom,in 2009, when she was only sixteen years old and he was 45.
Following this allegation, it's transpired that another woman, Calu Rivero had previously made sexual assault allegations against Darthés and this week, two other women, Ana Coacci and Natalia Juncos, have now made similar allegations against him.
A social media group # Mirácómonosponemos has now been created by Argentine actresses, to highlight what they say is abuse in the acting industry.
Note: miracomomepones (look how you make me) is what Darthés is alleged to have said to her in the hotel room, when referring to his arousal.
Apparently, Fardin had gone to his room to swap hotel key cards. This part isn't fully explained as to why.
In her video testimonial she says that someone knocked on the hotel room door, which allowed her to leave the room, but that someone hasn't been named and has yet to come forward.
Darthés has denied any wrongdoing and insists that she came on to him, but he says he managed to get her out of the room and telling her that she was the age of his own children.
He has apparently been summoned to answer the charges levelled against him at a court in Nicaragua, which he says he intends to do in order to clear his name. On the other hand, with three other women alleging similar sexual assaults against him, he's very likely to be guilty until proven innocent, especially in this day and age.
When I first saw the video below, I thought it was an actress actually playing a part for a film or series. That was my initial reaction anyway, until I read the story.
I have every sympathy for Miss Fardin, because, no matter how much time has passed, the deed has still been done and living with it is very hard. It's shame that often prevents people coming forward in the first place.
And here's Mr Darthés' response, which is effectively she said, he said.
