Ricky Martin joined Puerto Rican protestors to demand the resignation of Governor Ricardo Rosselló, who has been accused of degrading women, the LGBT+ community and other disadvantaged groups. Tens of thousands marched to the Democrat governor’s San Juan residence on Wednesday (July 17), protesting a series of offensive, derogatory messages between him and 11 of his top aides which were leaked on Saturday (July 13). Martin, who was born in San Juan, told the crowds that he was “tired” of the “corrupt” administration. “They put down women, they put down the LGBT+ community, people with disabilities,” he said in a video shared to Instagram.
