The Best Twitter Reactions to Gina Rodriguez Saying the N-Word

As the controversial Jane The Virgin star faces imminent cancelation, Twitter remains the real winner.

It seems Gina Rodriguez is disrespected black culture once again.

The controversial star of Jane The Virgin came under serious fire earlier this year for comments many viewed as anti-black. She is regularly accused of pitting Latinx and black actresses against each other, and her apologies always seem to ring hollow. Now she's in the headlines again, this time for saying the N-word while rapping along to a song. The video, posted to her Insta story, was quickly deleted and replaced by an awkward apology.

The apology was, once again, met with serious criticism. As Rodriguez faces imminent cancelation, she is also being dragged left and right on Twitter in the most hilarious way possible. Below are some of the best memes to commemorate this strange cultural moment.
