COMMENTS from a Spanish bullfighter about a woman who featured in a widely-shared sex video’s suicide have been criticised after he suggested men cannot watch such footage without sharing it.

Fran Rivera said it was not ‘manly’ to let videos of that kind go viral and added the woman was not to blame.

“But men, and I say this because I’m a man, we’re unable to have such a video and not share it,” Rivera said.

It comes after Veronica Rubio, 32, took her own life days after an intimate video of her was shared by work colleagues.


The mother-of-two hung herself a day after her husband saw the video which was made about five years earlier when she was unmarried.

It is believed to be a case of ‘revenge porn’, sex videos of someone shared by ex-partners without their permission.  

Rivera’s comments drew fire from social media users. Irene Montero, a senior member of the leftist Podemos, said: “We women have to be coy and careful how we behave, because a man can’t see a video ‘like this’ and not share it. That’s not naive idiocy, it’s the kind of logic that blames women in order to hide sexism.”
