These Latinos Are Dropping Some Amazing Jokes On Twitter And They Need To Be Acknowledged

Apparently, everything is happening on Twitter these days, including American foreign policy announcements. The social media giant has become the go to place to keep up with politics and give your brain and heart a break from politics. Fortunately, it is really easy to find just the comedy on Twitter and here are some of the most relatable and hilarious Latino moments on Twitter so far.

1. Our mothers are low key the best at dodging any and all questions.

LMAO. How many times has your own mother thrown your father off her trail? There were many days where we would help mom hide new purchases because dad doesn’t understand spending money.

2. The betrayal we all know that is Sephora’s beauty insider rewards.

@viviunuu / Twitter


The audacity of these ridiculous gifts is astounding. Like, who as Sephora realized that we could be fooled into accepting these Barbie makeup pieces as legitimate makeup? We’ll take it but only because we worked for it.

3. The classic non-verbal chancla threat had a moment.

@GimmeApenny / Twitter


Low key, we are all waiting for the time in our lives that we just slip a chancla off and the world stands still. You know that feeling from watching your mom do it. You can tell from the guy’s reaction that he knows what a chancla in the hand means for him. LOL

4. La Chona has gotten all of the abuelas on their feet.

@danielacelinaaa / Twitter


It is even better that she was able to use her kitchen skills to create a dope dance. Got to admit, you love your abuelas for all of their secret talents.

5. You can’t forget about any kind of physical discomfort.

@sadqueer4life / Twitter


True story: As a grimy, sporty kid, I had MRSA for months before my mom decided that hydrogen peroxide and sleeping with garlic under my pillow wasn’t going to cut it and I finally saw a doctor.

We have to stay vigilant, amigos.

6. We’ve got some very wise fashion police on the internet representing us.

@peachy___queen / Twitter


Who hasn’t experienced this unfortunate wardrobe malfunction from sleeping with a tank top? It’s almost like they don’t want you to sleep in these tops.

7. Perspective is everything and this Latino tweeter wasn’t afraid of it.

@MatteoGenota / Twitter


Low key, this is probably one of the most terrifying images you’ll find on the internet. Thomas clearly has some very dark thoughts and we should all be a little more weary around the tank engine.

8. We have learned how to pick ourselves up after the worst situations.

@YenniferGoVegan / Twitter


“You look cute, boo.”

“You’re flawless.”

“Eres más perfecta que nunca.”

9. Our superstitions and religious beliefs have come through in a clutch.

@paola__janet / Twitter


The World Cup had every Mexican fan on edge because, and let’s be honest, El Tri loves to choke at the World Cup. This abuela’s blessing did enough to help at the beginning but not even divine intervention could help the team advance too far.

10. A lot of the Spanish language is giving one name to an entire industry.

@jeamontanez / Twitter


It does not matter what kind of cereal it is. Literally every brand of cereal is Con Flay because that is just something that our families know about. There is also all kinds of sugar added to the real Corn Flakes.

11. It’s always fun to make fun of yourself, tbh.

@blindsiren / Twitter


Some people are just not meant to be in front of the camera and those people are usually great with words. A few fortunate souls are able to do both but it is very rare or takes a lot of effort.

12. Beauty products, amirite?

@Colorfulkkaylaa / Twitter


Was this a part of the Sephora Beauty Insider rewards? One of the greatest disappointments in our lives has to be getting something as a reward for the first time in Sephora only for it to be literally worthless.

13. Latinos stay ready with necessary life advice.

@barbieenriquezz / Twitter


Sure. There are other things you can do to get your family to celebrate you. However, none of them will result with flowers, usually. Instead, major milestones, like your First Communion, comes with prayer cards, rosaries, and other things you don’t really use.

14. While everyone talks about Latino time, we know that we just need time to plan.

@champagnefeel / Twitter


Seriously. We don’t do spontaneous because we were not raised that way. Everything has a plan and we spend months developing said plan. No Latina mother just lets things fly by with no planning.

15. Some tweets show the secret language we have with our families.

@_Evyvg / Twitter


There is something that feels so powerful when you read these things. Every major store and brand has a different name when it comes out of our parents’ and grandparents’ mouths.

16. You have to show respect to the people who make your life better.

@ashleydragulaa / Twitter


There is no question about that. Some times you have to show some respect to the people who change the game. Like, sure you don’t want strangers knocking on your door, but you also don’t want to miss out on some tamales.

17. Sibling humiliations are the most perfect tweets.

@AriannaModels / Twitter


She might be really embarrassed and sad right now, but she is going to be so happy this photo exists. Everyone wants to be Cardi B right now so she’ll be happy that she looks like her now.

18. This Twitter user quickly shut down this narrative.

@malazxadm / Twitter


Did your man literally put a crown on your head? Didn’t think so and as such he will get the look that he gets. Like, I love him and all but if he doesn’t give me a crown, how am I going to give him a princess look?

19. There have been some strong lines drawn when it comes to teaching abuelos how to use social media.

@camillard / Twitter


Older people should not be surprised by this kind of pushback here. Sorry, not sorry. We need to keep some things sacred and protected, like democracy for those of us young enough to have to live with the consequences.

20. And, here’s the realest tweet of them all.

@kinkypinata / Twitter


Say it louder for the people in the back. I want my sexual liberation back.

Latino Twitter Gifted The World With These Seriously Good Inauguration Memes

Things That Matter

Latino Twitter Gifted The World With These Seriously Good Inauguration Memes

Google/NBC

It’s official: the United States has a new president! Yesterday was Inauguration Day in the U.S. and we welcomed Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States and Kamala Harris as the 49th Vice President.

It was an historic day full of major milestones for the country and the world – and that was made obvious by the sheer amount of attention paid to the day’s events. One has to look no further than the amount of memes that were produced in the wake of the inauguration, from Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga to Bernie Sanders and the adiós to Donald and Melania Trump.

As usual, Latino Twitter showed up with the memes and left many of us on the floor laughing our a** off. These are some of the honorable mentions from a day full of historical moments and incredible memes.

Tío Bernie may have stolen the spotlight from President Biden with his very practical inauguration attire.

The long-serving Vermont senator was there to watch proceedings, bracing the D.C. cold to witness Biden being sworn in as president. To withstand the cold climes, Sanders came prepared in a big old reliable coat and mittens – with his inaugural look and general demeanour waiting for the event to begin capturing the creativity of the internet through a series of ‘Cold Bernie’ memes.

Bernie was everywhere!

The former presidential candidate was popping up in all sorts of places as the Internet memed him into a frenzy.

And he was all of us…

The former aspiring presidential candidate later addressed the attention his outfit was getting in an interview with Gayle King, noting: ‘You know in Vermont we know something about the cold and are not so concerned about good fashion, we want to keep warm and that’s what I did today.’

The Internet has even created a website where you can insert Tío Bernie into any scene you want with Google Maps.

And yes, it actually works!

Michelle Obama told us all how she felt without telling us all how she felt.

When Michelle and Barack Obama departed the White House in 2017 to make way for Donald and Melania Trump to take over the reigns, Michelle did not hide how difficult and upsetting she found the moment. So a lot of people were thrilled to see the Michelle we know and love, happy, thrilled and generally paving the way at the 2021 inauguration ceremony.

Lady Gaga giving the world Hunger Games vibes…

Lady Gaga had the honour of performing the American national anthem, ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ and, of course, she ‘killed’ it. The dramatic and rousing performance was made even better by her custom-made Schiaparelli gown, adorned in the US colours and complete with patriotic hidden meanings. However some thought they’d seen it – particularly the brooch – before…

Then there were the adiós Trump memes that left Mexican Twitter on fire!

A la verga! Adiós, Señor Trump! 👋

This one is too good!

I. Can’t. Stop. Laughing.

Mexican Facebook was also on fire!

This Twitter user is too right, Mexican Facebook really is undefeated!

And some want to reclaim red hats!

If you could bring back red hats, what would yours say?

You may have heard of Olivia Rodrigo, the 17-year-old Disney Channel actress who has recently take the music industry by storm with the success of her debut single, “Driver’s License”.

Well you wouldn’t be the only one who is thinking about her. Recently, Cardi B tweeted about the viral song, namely lamenting over the fact that she does not have her driver’s license.

On Tuesday, Cardi tweeted out her frustration about the fact that she has to rely on other people to fulfill her late-night McDonald’s cravings.

“Just like that girl [who] wrote a song about getting her driver’s license, Imma write a song about the struggle of not having a drivers license,” she wrote. “I really wanted my McDonald’s at 4am last night instead of today, but I couldn’t so I felt asleep hungry.” More relatable words have never been spoken, tbh.

Shocked that the Bronx-born rapper even knows who she is, Rodrigo tweeted a response back at Cardi.

“Girl i will pick u up and take u wherever u wanna go,” Rodrigo wrote back.

Cardi, for her part, seemed excited to find a driver to take her on late-night McDonald’s runs. She wrote back: “Yaaayyy!!! Let’s go to McDonald’s and get happy meals!”

Cue the influx of Twitter stans demanding a future Olivia Rodrigo x Cardi B collab.

Olivia Rodrigo is just as surprised about “Driver’s License” success as everyone else is.

Rodrigo recently told Billboard that this past week, when “Driver’s License” shot to No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart has been “the weirdest week of my whole life.”

Rodrigo was a relatively unknown Disney Channel star on Disney+’s “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” before this song hit the airwaves. Now she’s a pop sensation.

“So many people that I look up to have reached out and expressed their love for the song, which is absolutely surreal,” she told Billboard. But I truly am just the same 17-year-old girl, doing statistics homework in my bedroom.”

While many people are wondering what Rodrigo’s background is, she is proudly half-Filipino.

While some people have mistakenly called Olivia Rodriguez Latina, she is actually of Filipino descent, just like previous “High School Musical” star, Vanessa Hudgens. Just like Latin American countries, the Philippines were colonized by Spain–that is why so many people of Filipino descent have Spanish-sounding last names.

Rodrigo has talked at length about her cultural and familial roots. “My great-grandfather immigrated here from the Philippines when he was just a teenager. He’s my grandma’s dad, and my grandpa is also Filipino as well,” Rodrigo revealed in an interview with the Center for Asian American Media back in 2018.

“My dad grew up in a house where they were always making Filipino food, his grandpa always spoke Tagalog. All of those traditions have trickled down to our generation.”
