Univision has decided to fire the Cuban Enrique Albis, writer and producer of the programThe fat and the skinny, after the leak of an audio in which he is allegedly heard making sexual proposals, insistently, to an aspiring television presenter.

"Univision is committed to a diverse, inclusive and safe work culture, free of harassment. We expect all employees to treat each other and the audience, community, guests and associates with dignity and respect, and we do not tolerate any type of transgression," the network said in a statement.

Harassment—of any kind and in any setting—is totally unacceptable. As soon as we learned of these allegations, we launched an investigation. Mr. Enrique Albis has been fired from the company,” he adds.

It was the YouTube showGossip No Like the one who shared the recording on Wednesday afternoon, which dates back to April 20, 2015.

In the recording you can hear how the driver refuses and, trying to close the topic, at a certain moment tells him that she does not like men, while he insists and adds that it does not matter, because he is not looking to satisfy her, but rather satisfy himself.

The Argentine presenter and actor, Javier Ceriani, has published on Instagram the text of a second complaint about Albis.

Actor, comedian, producer, editor of the written press, Enrique Albis (1968) emigrated to the United States in 2000 as a rafter. In Cuba he was part of the theater group Onondivepa (1992) and later participated in 1996 in television programs such as “Pateando La Lata”, “And what are you laughing at?” "Day and night".
