If You Hate Avocado As Much As I Do, Then This Post Will Be Way Too Relatable

With all the hype around avocado and guacamole, people are buying all sorts of avocado eeeeverything. You keep saying “I hate avocado” because you’re part of the 2% of people who hate avocado

As you may have noticed, tons of people LOVE avocado.

It’s like butter, but much healthier, and it tastes amaaaazing. So they say…

People love it so much they rub it all over their face.

And it doesn’t stop there. Other people massage it into their hair as conditioner. That’s just how healthy and amazing people say it is.

And they even sing about it.


Warning: this super catchy song will be stuck in your head for the next two hours.

But then there’s people like me, who believe it or not, do not think avocado is that fun or delicious.

Yup, to some of us it’s actually GROSS.

There are a few of us who, no matter the hype, have never been into avocado or its mushy counterpart guacamole.

To us, it tastes awwwwful.

When a restaurant has complimentary guac and chips on the table, we awkwardly sit there and eat the chips by themselves.

And as soon as someone notices that you haven’t touched the guac, someone insists you have some.

When people notice, they question why you’re not devouring the green stuff like the rest of the people at the table… And your response usually leaves them SHOOK.

¡¿COMO QUE NO TE GUSTA EL AGUACATE Y EL GUACAMOLE?!

They think you’re completely insane and that something is definitely wrong with you.

How can you be Latino and NOT LIKE GUACAMOLE?!

And when you place your food order and ask the waiter to remove (yes, I repeat, remove) the avocado, friends and family quickly jump in and say:

They tell the waiter to put the avocado on the side, that way they can snatch it up for themselves once your plate arrives. #FreeGuacamole

Because of course they’re not going to sit back and let you waste some tasty and expensive avocado.


Are you crazy?! Some places charge extra money for guacamole, if a place is giving it to you for FREE, then you take it!

With everyone trying to convince you just how amazing this green stuff is, you’ve probably given it another chance.  Who knows, maybe you’ll like it this time, right?

13 billion people can’t be wrong.

…WRONG! ?

This Hilarious Viral Video is Being Called the Latino Version of ‘Get Out’

We’ve all experienced it before–the nervousness of meeting your partner’s parents. And if you’re in an interracial relationship, that nervousness grows exponentially.

That’s why this video of a young Latino man who is hesitant about entering his white girlfriend’s Trump-supporting family’s house has gone viral.

It’s #relatable.

The video starts off with the unnamed boyfriend narrating what’s happening to him as his girlfriend practically drags him into her parent’s home.

In Spanish, he says “I’m going to visit my girlfriend’s parent’s house. The house is very beautiful and she wants me to go inside. But I’m not going to do that because there’s a problem.”

At this point, he pans up to focus on a “Trump” sign prominently displayed on the front lawn.

He turns the camera around to show his own very worried face. The young man’s girlfriend tries to assure him that everything is okay, promising him that her parents are “going to like you”.

The young man tells her to go on without him because he “doesn’t want to die” today. “Maybe tomorrow, yes. But today–no,” he says.

His girlfriend keeps insisting he follow her in until he finally says: “They don’t like me!” before zooming in on the “Trump/Pence” sign one final time. The comedic timing is *chef’s kiss* impeccable.

The video is captioned “This Spanish remake of ‘Get Out’–a witty nod to the 2017 horror film.

As a refresher, “Get Out” centers on a young Black man in an interracial relationship who visits his white girlfriend’s family for the weekend. Soon, he realizes the family is not quite as idyllic as they’re pretending to be. Before long, he realizes his life is in danger.

The movie accurately depicted the real-life horror of racism and white supremacy through a cinematic lens. Phrases like “the sunken place” (the place the main character went when he’s paralyzed by his girlfriend’s mother) became cultural shorthand for: the “place an oppressed person goes when they have become silent or compliant to their own oppression” (thanks Urban Dictionary).

Internet commentators chimed in with their own thoughts and opinions about the super relatable video.

One Reddit user knew exactly how the young man felt. “As a biracial person who dated a girl from a very conservative Republican family, they never let me forget that I was biracial,” he said. “They brought it up almost every day.”

Another knew the struggles of having family members with different views from their own: “I have friends and family members that have been radicalized.. it’s very difficult to have a conversation about anything anymore that doesn’t end with vitriol.”

Another Reddit user had more sympathy for the man’s girlfriend. “I feel bad for the girl honestly,” they said. “We may be able to choose who we befriend, but we can never choose our parents.”
