Jonathan Aguilar Garcia, widely known as Chokoleit, got the internet in a frenzy when a video of him kissing a fresh-faced, handsome guy circulated not just on video-sharing platform YouTube, but even on social media sites like Facebook.
The video is one minute long and it showed the comedienne caught in a passionate, make-out session with an unnamed man. It was uploaded by a certain Facebook user named Aliah Ferrer Vasquez on Sunday, February 5, 2016.
