Ricky Martin branded ‘an ambassador for hell’ – Tabloid Hell

Martin has faced criticism in Puerto Rico over his sexuality

Ricky Martin has been subjected to heavy criticism in his home nation of Puerto Rico over his decision to come out as gay last year.

Wanda Rolon, who is a preacher at the island’s First Christian Church of La Senada Antigua, has described the popstar as “an ambassador for hell”.

According to On Top Magazine, Rolon, who posted the rant on her Facebook page, has since denied she is homophobic.

Another religious leader on the island, Cardinal Luis Aponte Martinez of San Juan, has also criticised Martin and has asked him to stop promoting his homosexuality.

Martinez said: “I admire Ricky for the great artistic gifts the Lord has endowed him, but please, for the love of his children, for whom I imagine he wants the best, try to set an example to our youth of the great values we all share, besides sex.”

Meanwhile, gay rights activists have in turn criticised Martinez and Rolon‘s statements, reports On Top Magazine.
