16 Latino Celebs People Love To Hate

Even within our own community, there are people that everyone just loves to hate. Sometimes it’s because they rub us the wrong way, while other time it’s because they’re just horrible people. Let’s indulge our dark side today, and talk about some of the Latino celebs that we love to hate.

1. Kat Von D

Kat Von D was actually born Katherine von Drachenberg in Montemorelos, Mexico. She’s famous for her work as a TV tattoo artist, first on Miami Ink, then on her own spin-off LA Ink. She’s a famously divisive figure in the tattooing community for her fallout with Miami Ink boss Ami James- several members of the studio claim that she used a racial slur against James after she was fired. She went on to found her own makeup line but ran into trouble again earlier this year when she announced on Instagram that she would not be vaccinating her newborn.

2.- Stacey Dash

Most people remember Stacey Dash from her starring role in both the movie and the TV version of Clueless. The actress, who is of Bajan, Mexican, and African-American descent, recently pivoted from entertainment into politics. In 2012, she publicly announced her support for the Republican party, and since the rise of Donald Trump has been one of his most outspoken advocates. She was recently hired by Fox News as a ‘cultural analysis’ commentator.

3. Bella Thorne

Actress and model Bella Thorne’s Twitter has been blowing up recently after her insensitive comments about the California wildfires were picked up by the media. In her Nov. 1 tweet, she complained that she couldn’t make it to her boyfriend’s show because the 101 Freeway was closed. Actor Rob Lowe picked up the tweet and posted “This attitude is why people hate celebrities/Hollywood. Bella, I’m sorry you were inconvenienced. We will try to move out our dead quicker.”

4. Perez Hilton

Gossip blogger Perez Hilton (who was born Mario Armando Lavandiera Jr.) has been posting his hot takes on celeb culture and entertainment since his eponymous website opened in 2004. He’s been criticized for favoring celebrities that he’s personal friends with, like Paris Hilton and Lady Gaga, while simultaneously bullying others.

5. Juan Pablo Galavis

Although he began his career as a soccer player in Venezuela before moving to Miami FC, Juan Pablo Galavis is most famous for his stint on The Bachelorette, and then The Bachelor. He was eliminated early in Desiree Hartsock’s season but was brought back for season 18 of The Bachelor as the first Latino Bachelor. He quickly fell from favor after he publicly dismissed the idea of a gay bachelor season, saying “I don’t think it is a good example for kids to watch that on TV.”

6. David Blaine

David Blaine is one of the most famous magicians in the world- which explains his presence on this list. Most people think his illusions are simply visual trickery and roll their eyes when he’s quoted saying stuff like: “I saw something very prophetic … a vision of every race, every religion, every age group banding together, and that made all this worthwhile” after one of his endurance stunts.

7. Charlie Sheen

Instagram @charliesheen

In 2010, Charlie Sheen had everything- a stellar movie career, and a lucrative TV gig where he was making $1.8 million per episode of Two and a Half Men. Then, his bad-boy image started taking over his life- he assaulted his wife and was investigated for stalking and threatening his former fiancée. The man who was born Carlos Irwin Estevez has become a parody of himself.

8. Lele Pons

Instagram @lelepons

Lele Pons, who was born in Caracas, Venezuela, was for a time the No. 1 Viner in the entire world. She’s spun her popularity into viral fame, become one of the most sought-after influencers on social media. Although she has many devoted fans, tons of people have left her social media channels after stories of her lying about doing charity work broke. She had been bragging about donating her hair to a cancer charity, but it turns out that the hair she was holding in that video was fake.

9. Alex Rodriguez

The lovable baseball superstar turned genius investor Alex Rodriguez has managed to make people forget that in 2007, he publicly came forward to tell the world that he had been using steroids for years. If he had admitted it while he was still playing, it would have resulted in the longest non-lifetime suspension in MLB history.

10. Jose Canseco

Instagram @33josecanseco

Another Latino baseball star who disappointed millions of fans by using performance-enhancing drugs is Jose Canseco. He made his confession in spectacular style, publishing a book entitled Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant ‘Roids, Smash Hits & How Baseball Got Big. In the book, he not only confessed to doping himself, but he also called out his teammates that hadn’t yet come forward.

11. Snooki

Instagram @snooki

Nicole Polizzi, who most people know as Snooki, caught the world’s attention as a hard-partying ‘guidette’ on MTV’s Jersey Shore. Although the entire show was about the cast’s Italian heritage, Polizzi (who now goes by her married name, Nicole LaValle), was actually born in Chile and was adopted as an infant by an Italian-American family.

12. J-Woww

Instagram @jwoww

Snooki’s Jersey Shore bestie J-Woww has also admitted to not really being of Italian heritage- she’s actually from a Spanish and Italian family. Regardless of her heritage, she provided six seasons worth of drunken guidette drama on the popular MTV reality show.

13. Lea Michele

Instagram @leamichele

Glee star Lea Michele has her share of haters, but most people are just jealous of her insanely incredible voice. Lea Michele hails from a Sephardic-Jewish background and has been a fixture on Broadway since she was a teenager. Glee was her first major TV role, and she’s since appeared on numerous TV series’, and has released two solo studio albums.

14. Nicole Richie

Instagram @nicolerichie

It’s easy to forget now that she’s grown up and calmed down a bit, but Nicole Richie used to run with a wild socialite crowd. Richie, who has English, Mexican, and Creole ancestry, was first introduced to the world through the 2003 TV series The Simple Life, which took Richie and her BFF Paris Hilton, and dropped the spoiled teens in rural Alabama for a month.

15. Jennifer Lopez

Instagram @jlo

While most people in the world love J-Lo, she has really gone far away from her roots in the south-side Bronx. There’s no one in the world that could mistake her for ‘Jenny from the Block’ now- because they’re definitely too bedazzled by all the rocks that she got.

16. Aubrey Plaza

Instagram @plazadeaubrey
Another actress whose style requires a bit of a leap of faith is Aubrey Plaza, who first caught the world’s attention in Parks and Recreation. Although she’s one of the funniest actresses out there today, not everyone appreciates her dry and sardonic humor. Half-Puerto Rican Plaza’s next appearance will be in a remake of the 1988 horror film Child’s Play.

How y’all doing on this beautiful Monday ?

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

The rapper posted this beautiful picture of herself earlier this week after revealing that she had a new tattoo finished on her back. “Okay guys! Soooo here it is! It took me several months but I’m finally finished. This is my back tattoo! It goes from the top of my back to the middle of my thigh,” Cardi wrote in a caption to her Instagram. In a separate clip to her Instagram, she credited tattoo artist Jamie Schene of Union3Tattoo for the work.

I mean… just look at her.

In a recent post to her Instagram page, the rapper got real about her pictures and admitted to being about that “suck it in life.”

Suck it in life .

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

“I suck the s–t out my stomach for this pic so appreciated,” she wrote in the caption to her Instagram post. In it, Cardi can be seen wearing a teeny bikini and lace-up stilettos. To follow up, the rapper shared another Instagram video, this time of herself walking towards the camera in her bikini, and faulting her body. When she turns she shows off her side profile and lets out her stomach. And tbh we love the natural curves!

Of course, it didn’t take long for fans to flock to the comments and gas up the rapper.

“Same here sis!!! ,” Antonique Smith the actress from “Notorious” wrote in the captions. “Thank you for the honesty!” “If this ain’t da realest shii,” sevyn added to the comments.

It’s no surprise the rapper is being open about her body. She has a long history of being honest about her own body positivity and experiences with liposuction and receiving plastic surgery after giving birth to daughter Kulture. In an interview with E! she explained that speaking openly about the procedures was important for her she does not “like lying about things.”

Jimmy Fallon Apologizes For Wearing Blackface In 2000 ‘SNL’ Sketch

Jimmy Fallon is the latest celebrity to face consequences from blackface clips resurfacing. The talk show host and comedian is facing backlash after a clip of him on “Saturday Night Live” impersonating Chris Rock in blackface resurfaced.

A 20-year-old clip of Jimmy Fallon in blackface on “SNL” impersonating Chris Rock.

The clip is circulating on social media and has sparked a debate over cancel culture and blackface in our society. The comedian is the latest in a line of prominent people that have had to apologize for offensive images of them in blackface resurfacing. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and fellow comedian Sarah Silverman have also apologized publicly for moments of blackface in their past.

Fallon owned up to the incident and tweeted an apology.

People have come to Fallon’s defense since the video has resurfaced. One of those people is Jaime Foxx.

“He was doing an impression of Chris Rock. It wasn’t black face [sic],” Foxx commented on an E! News Instagram post. “We comedians, I know it’s a tough time right now. But this one is a stretch. On a show called ‘In Living Color’ we played every race. Let this one go. We got bigger fish to fry … #changecourse.”

The revelation of Fallon in blackface brought a clip of Jimmy Kimmel in blackface to light.

Fallon fans are calling on social media to give Kimmel a similar treatment because of his own example of blackface for comedic appeal. Kimmel’s blackface incident hasn’t caused as big of a reaction as Fallon’s.

Social media users are in a fierce debate over what Fallon’s fate should be in the time of cancel culture.

Blackface has a long and documented history of oppression in the United States. The practice of blackface dates back to the 1830s in the U.S. and it later caught on in Britain. Blackface was usually used in minstrel shows that would play on stereotypes of Black people and helped in the proliferation of racism and prejudice.

Some people are trying to make whiteface a thing but Twitter users are not having it.

Critics are quick to differentiate blackface from whiteface because of their historical context. While blackface has a direct link to racism, slavery, and Jim Crow, whiteface is different according to critics. Whiteface does not build itself on racism, oppression, and racial segregation.

What do you think about the Jimmy Fallon blackface clip?
