    Default "...se cargó el estilo de... " idiom?

    What's the meaning of "cargó" in this context? Here's the relevant textual info:

    ... se cargó el estilo de interpretación de la austríaca, .... «Los personajes no le crecen, porque se le enquistan dentro"

    He's putting down her acting ability, "cargó" here seems to have an idiomatic sense beyond mere "load" "carry" and so on.

    Any help appreciated,
    Thanks

    You are right, bird, welcome to the forum

    Cargarse algo = to spoil, to screw up, to break, to criticize


    it all depends on the context.



    Looks like somebody was acting and he or she didn't do a good job . or some kind of critique who criticised the Austrian's acting.

    I guess it is the latter, as you are quoting what this guy said (??).
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."


    El Corán (libro sagrado de los musulmanes, recitado por Alá a Maomé en el siglo VI)
