You probably haven’t heard of this yet, but surely you would have had this been Elizabeth Hasselback or a similarly right-leaning host of the view.
Actress Naya Rivera of Glee fame, apparently believes showering daily is “a white people thing.”
Rivera would add that she thinks “that white people shower a lot more than ethnics.”
Here is the video clip, roll it…
Naya Rivera believes showering is for white people, apparently. According to Us Weekly, the Glee actress made the comment while co-hosting The View on Monday, and many people couldn’t even believe what they were hearing — especially the other women on The View. People in the live audience also seemed quite taken aback by Rivera’s comments about what ethnic group showers more, and said comments haven’t just gone away.
“I have to say I have a theory about showering, [which] is that I think that white people shower a lot more than ethnics. I feel like showering more than once a day or every day is such a white people thing,” Rivera said. Once she realized her comments didn’t take too well, she tried to defend herself.
“[My mom is half-black, half-Puerto Rican, and she] showers every day, so I can say this. But I can say that I am now married to a white man, and he showers a lot. Like, a lot — two, three times a day. I’m like, ‘What are you doing?’”
It wasn’t just the crowd at The View that took issue with Rivera’s comments. Fans on social media went after the actress.
Rivera would later explain that showering daily is a bad thing from a dermatological standpoint.
This will no doubt be laughed off as an air-headed actress slip of the tongue. Would Hollywood or the media be so forgiving had this been a conservative? Tell us what you think.
