In an interview with Infobae, an Argentinian media outlet, the 57-year-old said she is now seen as a “terrorist who brought the virus to kill everyone”.
Asked if she didn’t consider it unwise to mingle in large crowds having just arrived from Spain, Hontou, a fashion designer, was quoted as saying: “That’s ridiculous! Plus, do you know how many people came on that plane?”
