Controversy[edit | edit source]
On July 12th, 2012, in the state of Mexico, El Campamento Colibrí was the victim of an attack conducted by an armed group comprised of 12 people. Approximately 90 people at the camp were attacked; With 7 teens being tortured, sexually harassed, and robbed of their personal belongings. The perpetrators of the attack were soon caught and subsequently prosecuted. This tragic event served as the inspiration of an episode titled: Adiós Inocencia. Which translates to: "Goodbye Innocence," in English.
When the sneak-peek aired on August 10th, 2012, the parents of the victims sent various complaints to the president of Televisa, Emilio Ascarraga. The parents protested the studio's decision to air the episode, demanding it not be aired. As a result, the episode never saw the light of day. Despite this, some claim that the episode did air at a later date, during mid 2013 or 2014, but this has not been confirmed.
