Controversy broke out around the nature of the relationship between Thalía and Apfel, as some viewers interpreted the video as if the designer were the singer’s ‘grandmother’.

These speculations were fueled by the statement of Laura Zapata’s sister, who stated on her own social media that Thalía and Apfel had an «immediate connection.»

«Our connection was instantaneous. She was one of the figures that I have admired the most because of her brain and her heart, which kept them sharp until the last day of her life,» she wrote.

«Thank you for all your magic and for teaching us that the intellect and the heart can work hand in hand to create a fantastic life,» the post says.

While some followers praised Thalía’s show of affection and respect towards the late designer. Others expressed their skepticism and accused the artist of taking advantage of the situation to gain notoriety.

The controversy intensified further when some users pointed out that Thalía’s post seemed more like an attempt to capitalize on Apfel’s death than a genuine tribute.

“Hypocrisy in its maximum splendor”, “And nothing to your grandmother”, said some users in their post instagram.

“She has the burden of conscience that she did not support her grandmother when she needed it most, poor woman. Karma is karma,” said another Internet user.
