In April 2014, Garmendia was scheduled to appear at the Telmex Digital Village in Zócalo, Mexico City.[citation needed] The event experienced an unplanned excess of attendees and many people were waiting in line to see him, but he fainted from heat exposure and was evacuated. The crowd became unruly, with attendees forcing their way past barriers and into the tented area, causing injuries. Ten people were injured when a light element fell into the crowd. After security regained control of the situation, the crowd was dispersed and Garmendia's event was cancelled. He later expressed condolences to his fans for the incident.[167][168]

Several days later, Garmendia uploaded a video entitled An apology and a reflection to continue advancing in which he apologized for comments made in the 2014 video.
