This 8-Year-Old Ran Away From Home When His Mom Told Him The Three Kings Forgot Him But His Story Has A Happy Ending

From a young age we’ve been told, “It’s the thought that counts,” and to accept any gift with a smile. But this little boy was not about to take the disrespect. An eight-year-old boy from Guanajuato woke up on January 7 to find that his letter to the three kings was left unanswered—so naturally, he ran away from home.

Juan Daniel was found wandering the streets by police in Santa Teresa, Guanajuato. 

Police said the boy told them that he had found his unanswered letter to the three kings inside his shoes where he had left it the night before.

His mom told him los Reyes forgot about him.

When he asked his mother why the three kings hadn’t brought him the talking robot he had asked for, she told him that they had forgotten about him. Upset at the oversight, Juan Daniel ran away.

The 8-year-old had asked for a robot that says the words “Love me, hug me.”

The police picked him up and called his family

The minor was taken to Social Services where his uncles came to the rescue —his mom arrived moments later, she had reported her son missing just a few hours prior. 

The officers were touched by the boy’s disappointment

Moved by the story, officers and administrative staff at the police station raised money to buy him the gifts that had not appeared.

An officer even played the role of the Kings’ emissary

Soon after, a police officer carrying a bag of toys came to the station pretending to be an emissary of the three kings. He told Juan Daniel the kings had been busy so they had asked him to help pass out toys to children.

Juan Daniel got his presents in the end.

The boy opened the bag to find the robot he had asked for, as well as a train, a ball, notebooks and a box of crayons. Meanwhile, social workers provided support to the boy’s mother for problems with addiction.

You Won’t Believe How Good This 4-Year-Old’s Cover Of Selena’s ‘Bidi Bidi Bom Bom’ Is

The Internet once again delivers us a Selena-related gem and this time it’s in the form of a viral video featuring a little 4-year-old girl from the United Kingdom. The obviously very talented young singer is no stranger to Internet fame, she performs alongside her family in several videos, but her latest rendition of Selena’s hit ‘Bidi Bidi Bom Bom’ has introduced the young singer to an entirely new audience and we are living for it.

A four-year-old girl is going viral for her take on Selena’s iconic ‘Bidi Bidi Bom Bom.’

The adorable 4-year-old Maliya Kabs is charming everyone with her beautiful rendition of Selena’s anthem “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom.”

The now-viral moment was caught on camera by her dad who is sitting in a car with his daughter as she shows off her multilingual skills. After discussing how she’s learned several languages — like Awngi, French, Portuguese, and Lingala — from various family members, her dad shares that he was able to speak 12 languages when he was her age. Clearly bored with the discussion, she eventually asks, “Really, Daddy? Can I just put on my songs?” before cranking up the late singer’s catchy tune.

She starts blasting “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” and belts out the catchy chorus and instructs her dad to sing. “Canta” she tells her father, who is surprised that his little girl would even know the Spanish lyrics to this song. “It means sing,” she explains to him.

It wasn’t just “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” that was “one of her songs.” Maliya goes on to sing “Como La Flor” with so much emotion while her dad, visibly shocked, watches her daughter sing along to Selena.

The video now has more than 2.3 million views on YouTube!

Maliya is a member of the UK-based Kabs Family, whose popular car singalongs have amassed millions of views on social media. The family has been making videos since 2018. Their first video went viral when Maliya, then one year old, danced to the popular kid’s song “Baby Shark” and sang to Cardi B’s “Finesse.”

Between nailing the Spanish lyrics and showcasing her passionate dance moves, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Maliya singing in an arena one day. We think that Selena herself would be very proud to see this little girl doing her song justice like this.

People Have Strong Opinions About Bad Bunny’s Word Choice During Recent WWE Performance

People Have Strong Opinions About Bad Bunny’s Word Choice During Recent WWE Performance

He started off 2020 taking over the music industry around the globe, dropping hit after hit among his three albums from 2020 alone. Now, in 2021, Bad Bunny seems to be taking over the wrestling ring as he’s been a common feature at WWE’s wrestling events.

However, with his latest performance, Bad Bunny is in the spotlight for what many are calling a poor choice of words when battling against a fellow wrestler with many accusing the apparently ‘woke’ reggaetonero of homophobia.

Bad Bunny used a Puerto Rican slang word that many people find offensive.

San Benito has been a regular feature on World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) recently and this past Monday’s Raw was an eventful episode for him. Not only did he trade his WWE 24/7 Title Championship to R-Truth for some Steve Austin merchandise but he also got physical with a team of wrestlers.

During the altercation, Benito was hit by a guitar and fell to the floor in apparent agony. Even though the scene was pretty intense and featured plenty of action, it’s what Bad Bunny said that seems to be getting the most headlines.

It has now been exposed by Twitter user @NYCDemonDiva that while Bunny was selling the guitar shot and being checked on by Priest, he actually used an offensive Puerto Rican curse word to describe The Miz. The term was “mamabicho,” which means “cocksucker” in English. 

The word “mamabicho” is frequently used to target gay men on the island.

The world is a Puerto Rican insult that can be used to describe a man who acts femininely or is out as gay. With Puerto Rico recently declaring a state of emergency due to the staggering level of violence against the island’s trans community, Bad Bunny should know better than to promote this type of language.

While the WWE probably won’t be happy with Bad Bunny using such language on Raw, it’s unlikely he’ll suffer any repercussions. He has brought the company a lot of mainstream publicity, even appearing with the 24/7 Championship during multiple appearances. He is also featured prominently on WWE’s promotional material for WrestleMania, where he is expected to team with Priest to take on The Miz and John Morrison.
