Not only has he expressed his concerns and raised awareness on social media, but he’s also blasted Chilean president Michelle Bachelet — the United Nations’ High Commissioner for Human Rights — for not intervening to bring peace to Venezuela.
“I ask in the most attentive way the High Commissioner of Human Rights at the UN, Ms. Michelle Bachelet, to pay close attention to the Human Rights of the Venezuelan people that right now are being violated by the Maduro regime,” he tweeted on January 28, sharing a graphic video of the mistreatment of three prisoners in Venezuela.
The “Amante Bandido” singer didn’t hesitate to send her another message during the Venezuela Aid Live concert that took place Friday, Feb. 22 in Cúcuta.
“I also take this opportunity to tell Mrs. Michelle Bachelet, High Commissioner for Human Rights of the United Nations, to come once and for all to see the amount of lack of human rights,” he said during his speech in front of a roaring crowd. “Michelle, come here, move your butt and act with the authority you have because otherwise, you don’t belong there.”
After receiving heavy backlash on social media — especially from the Chilean community — Bosé was soon back on social media offering his apologies.
“To my beloved Chilean people and the rest of the world, I feel very, very sorry for the discomfort that my words towards Mrs. Michelle Bachelet provoked in Cúcuta, in the context of the Venezuela Aid concert,” he wrote. “From here I apologize for the offensive tone towards her. In the heat of the moment, and before the anger of seeing what happens in Venezuela I overreacted and I apologize, as well as to those who I indirectly may have upset.”
In his full statement, which can be read below, Bosé emphasized that Bachelet or anyone with a high position should raise their voice on the situation in Venezuela.
