ControversyEdit

The company CitizenGo, launched through its website a request that calls for the telenovela to be taken off the air, because Televisa wants to normalize homosexuality as normal in society.[18] Due to this controversy, People en Español announced the news and created a survey for readers to vote if they agree or disagree with the proposal of CitizenGo.[19] The petition to sign for the telenovela to be taken out of the air, says the following:

 
From left to right: Andrés Zuno and Raúl Coronado in their respective roles. Both main characters of the controversy generated.

Sincerely. Emilio Azcárraga Jean, president of Televisa

I write with concern about the telenovela 'Papá a toda madre'.

I am concerned that they intend to normalize homosexuality in Mexico against the majority feeling of citizenship and its audience.

You know very well the pedagogical power of your telenovelas.

I do not want anyone to be discriminated against socially, at work or politically because of their sexual orientation. But presenting a homosexual couple as an attractive model is different. Is this the new corporate strategy of Televisa?

They defrauded me. I thought that Televisa aspired to build a better society, to strengthen the family as the basic cell of Mexican society. I thought it was true that they affirm that their values are credibility, honesty and professionalism ...

Unfortunately I was wrong. Of course, I will not see the controversial telenovela. But neither his channel. I distrust your ethical criteria and there are other alternatives for leisure.[20]

On November 15, 2017 Televisa showed the first gay kiss in their telenovelas, although it has already been shown twice in the series Como dice el dicho,[21] something that generated a lot of controversy and that several media have tried to sense.[22] Previously this topic had been played, a scene was filmed in the telenovela Los exitosos Pérez but due to the controversy generated, that scene was censored.[23][24]
