Anti Jewish outburst
In 2009, after Zelaya's comments that "Israeli mercenaries" were torturing him with toxic gases and radiation that alter his physical and mental state, Romero Ellner accused Jews of being a problem in Honduras and also said to his radio listeners that "I believe it should have been fair and valid to let Hitler finish his historic vision". he accused Jews of being a problem in Honduras and also spoke in favour of the Holocaust to his radio listeners. Zelaya stated in response, "I condemn that kind of racism and discrimination. I don't share that point of view." The Association of Descendants of Sephardic Jews in Honduras issued a public statement against Romero Ellner.
