After Brandon Meza and Cinthya Uvita, contestants of the dance show "Bailadísimo" finished their performance, they stood in front of the judges to get whatever notes and comments related to their progress, dance, technique, etc. While singer and actress Karenka, expressed her thoughts to the couple, Julio Camejo, who disagreed with the Cuban, began to complain, alleging that her comments weren’t correct.

At the insistence of Camejo, the singer of "Que Te Lleve La Marea," lost control and gave him a tremendous slap across the face. 

After the terrible incident, Liz Vega, one of the hosts of the reality show, tried to calm both of them by explaining that "first of all they were friends and coworkers and that they had to cool the spirits." Due to the tense situation that many witnessed live, the show went to commercials.

After the situation, the celebs unloaded their emotions in Twitter. "I am very sad with what happened between my siblings @Julio_Camejo @karenkaoficial I hope this doesn't reach beyond heart," wrote Liz Vega in the social network of 140 characters.

Although Karenka issued a public apology, she also wrote in her Twitter account: "@Julio_Camejo's lack of respect has been going on for days, I thought they were jokes, yesterday he showed me they weren't." She also wrote the hashtag "Respect to be respected."

Julio Camejo, without mentioning anyone, just wrote the phrase: "Who has art, has ethics; who has ethics, has civility; who has civility has values; who has values can save the world."

"Bailadísimo" is a dance competition led by Ernesto Chavana and Liz Vega, counting with the participation as jury of Julio Camejo, Karenka, Lyn May, among other personalities.
