Mexican soap star Eduardo Yanez slapped a reporter in the face during a Hollywood red carpet interview held on Tuesday.

The actor and a reporter from Univision were mid-conversation for a filmed interview when he angrily lashed out at him.

Yanez appeared to lose his temper after the journalist, named Paco Fuentes, asked him about his relationship with his estranged son Eduardo Jr.

The pair have a strained relationship and his son recently alleged he was a “drug addict, racist [who] abuses women.”

On the red carpet in Los Angeles, Fuentes told the actor that his son had to set up a GoFundMe account to pay for car repairs.

Replying, Yanez said: “If you’re so worried about my son send him the money, or you go and talk to him.”

The journalist told him that he was just asking what the public wanted to know.

But an angry Yanez fired back: “That’s bulls**t. That’s what you say to get people involved in what they don’t care about. But the concerned one is you, brother. You got and tell [my son] what you have to say.”

Fuentes then told him: “Just remember that the press is the link between.”

At that point the actor, fired back, “You are a pure a** – do not disrespect me,” before slapping the reporter square in the face.

According to TMZ, Fuentes has since filed a police report with the LAPD, claiming assault and batery.

Yanez later offered an apology on Twitter, writing: “I want to ask for a sincere apology to the public and to the person affected by my action. It was not right. My private life is not for sale.”
