Actress Gina Rodriquez [best known for her role in Jane The Virgin]. . .who is Puerto Rican has found herself in a bit of trouble. She recently recorded herself while getting her hair done and singing along to the Fugees — when she sung the “N-word” and that is when shit hit the fan fort fans and people who saw the quick clip.
Now Gina. . .who say’s that particular song is one she loves and grew up on. . .apparently found herself in a hot seat not too long ago because of comments she made in regards to “blackness in the ENT industry” and her “frequent dismissal” of questions centered around black people. In an interview she had with Sway — she even broke down talking about the backlash she had been receiving.
With this video making its rounds honey — that backlash is probably on a 100! Keep reading more on this story [HERE].
This scenario has always been a debatable one. Is it ok for people are not black to “sing” the n-word when in song?
Check out the original video of her singing along with the song and her apology and tell us what you think!
