Venezuelan president blames Spiderman, superheroes for local crime
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has stated that he believes superhero idolization – or the excessive exposure to them is resulting in youth violence in his country.
“This kid, at 14 years old, carries a 9mm with a mind filled by thousands of hours of shows where people are killed,” the Venezuelan leader told La Opinion.
“I start to think how many thousands of hours of violence that kid will have consumed, in the end, stimulated by consumerism and violence when he grabs a 9mm and goes to kill,” Maduro added.
