Criticism Towards Alejandro Chabán on Social Media

In recent months, a particular detail has not gone unnoticed by television viewers and thousands of social media users. The person who has been the target of these criticisms is the actor, host, and writer Alejandro José Chabán Rodríguez.

“Se ve acabado” (He looks finished) is a comment that is frequently made about the businessman; what happened to Alejandro Chabán?

Who is Alejandro Chabán?

In August of last year, Alejandro Chabán, who was born in the city of Maturín, Venezuela, turned 42 years old. While some may not remember, he has appeared in soap operas, series, and movies.

Many people also recognize him from his appearances on the program Despierta América on Univisión. Currently, he hosts the podcast “Yes you can!”, which is available on his official YouTube channel, where he has nearly 60 thousand subscribers.

He’s Been Through a Lot in his Adolescence

Alejandro Chabán’s story is worth sharing: as a teenager, he weighed over 300 pounds. The Venezuelan host suffered from overweight, bulimia, and anorexia. Gradually, he lost weight and became a healthy person. However, it didn’t end there, as he has helped thousands of people reach their ideal weight. To this date, he has published four books, which have been a success in sales, including “Mi transformación de gordo a galán” (My transformation from fat to hunk).

He Defends Himself Against Haters

In September of 2023, Alejandro Chabán surprised his followers by posting a video in which he responds to his haters. Using his unique style, the host of the podcast “Yes you can!” read some offensive comments that he had received. “¿Has pensado si tu hijo adolescente es quien recibe ese comentario?” (Have you thought about your teenage son receiving that comment?), Chabán asked.

The Attacks Against Him Seem Never-ending

On his official Instagram account, Alejandro Chabán has over a million followers with whom he shares various posts. However, in recent weeks, it has been noted that several internet users have been harsh towards the Venezuelan writer. For instance, in one of his recent posts, where he appears with some hosts of Despierta América, a user commented, “No, but that Alejandro is just teeth,” while another wrote, “He looks just like Alejandra Espinosa.”

“La flacura extrema tampoco es salud” (Extreme thinness is not healthy either)

And just when it seemed like the attacks against Alejandro Chabán would stop, they continued to increase on several of his Instagram posts. A user did not hold back in saying that the actor looked too skinny and ‘too drained’, and that he needed to gain some weight to look younger. Finally, another internet user mentioned that the host looked like a ‘made-up corpse’.

Despite facing criticism and negativity, Alejandro Chabán continues to showcase his resilience in the face of adversity. His transformation story serves as an inspiration to many, proving that with determination and hard work, one can overcome any obstacle.
