Gina Rodriguez has been accused of being anti-Black and headed to Sway to set the record straight, but the interview resulted in Gina being clowned for her tearful performance.
"The backlash was devastating, to say the least. The black community was the only community I looked towards growing up. We didn't have many Latino shows and the black community made me feel like I was seen. So to get anti-black is to say I'm anti-family, " she said wiping away tears.
"I know my heart. I know what I meant, and I really wish we weren’t living in a culture where we're clickbait, because I've never said anything controversial about anybody," she continued.
"If anything, the Black community is my community. As Latinos, we have black Latinos; that is what we are. I am not, so I think when I speak about Latino advocacy, people believe I mean only my skin color."
But social media blasted her for not taking accountability for her actions and trying to use her tears to deflect from the issue.
Here are a few responses to the interview:
Do you think she was being sincere, or was social media right to clown her?
