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.











Summer Walker loves creating music but despises the music industry.

She regularly considers retirement and ended her 2019 tour early because of social anxiety. "I hope that people understand and respect that at the end of the day I'm a person, I have feelings, I get tired, I get sad," she said in a video post. "I don't want to lose myself for someone else." She was relentlessly vilified for her decision. Fans cited stiff meet-and-greets and chalked up Walker's cancellations to a sense of entitlement.

Then she was presented with the "Best New Artist" award at the 2019 Soul Train Awards, and her hurried acceptance speech was dissected by tasteless memes all across the country. Walker's candid cries for understanding remained completely ignored by years end. The truth of the matter is that Walker suffers from anxiety and stage fright that is all but totally crippling. So she did what any misunderstood artist does, she disappeared and stopped saying anything at all.
