Bad Bunny Pushes Back Against Homophobia And Celebrates Gender Fluidity In New Video For ‘Caro’

There are many negative generalizations about Latino men including, among others, that they are machistas and homophobic. In the music industry, discrimination, and bigotry also persist. One needs to look no further than a recent tweet by Puerto Rican Don Omar to witness the negativity and his downright offensiveness toward the LGBT community. Instead of promoting Omar’s tweet, we rather share the openness and positive stance that another Latino musical artist decided to tweet in response to him.

Bad Bunny responded to Don Omar’s bigotry against the LGBT and tweed: “Homophobia in this day and age? How embarrassing, loco.”

Bad Bunny isn’t just backing up the LGBT community with a tweet, he’s celebrating who he is and that he isn’t afraid to show it.

In his latest music video titled “Caro,” Bad Bunny proudly shows off his gender fluidity.

The Puerto Rican Latin trap artist has always been firm about his fluidity as a male, despite the closemindedness of others. In an interview with Refinery29, Bad Bunny opened up about his desire to wear nail polish and his eccentric way of dressing.

“Men also take care of themselves,” he said. “There is no need to criticize why one decides to maintain themselves one type of way. Stop the ignorance and let’s think with a more open mind. We’re in 2018, and we are supposed to have equality.”

From that moment on, the video then takes on a female lead and features other women of color of every shape and size walking down the fashion runway.  The video, directed by Fernando Lugo and Bad Bunny, also features women you normally never see in music videos, let alone a rap music video, including a drag queen, a pregnant woman, and young girl with Down Syndrome.

Bad Bunny’s decision to highlight the gender spectrum in his music video is striking a chord with fans.

In “Caro” we see him in his true form, and it’s so refreshing to see a male rapper pushing back against the typical heteronormative narratives we constantly see in music videos. In “Caro” — which means expensive in Spanish — Bad Bunny is getting his nails painted and then in an instant he becomes female, and she has the same buzz cut that he does.

Bad Bunny’s “Caro” is the latest song and video to push the boundaries of sexuality in Latin music.

Major Latin music artist are standing up for their queer, female, and gender non-conforming fans like never before and it is resonating with everyone. As a society, we are learning more and more about the ever-growing and ever-changing landscape of gender identity and gender expression. Bad Bunny is one musical artist that is leaning into his own gender expression.

The inclusivity and acceptance in “Caro” are bringing joy to so many people that need this message.

Bad Bunny’s video shows the world, or at least those watching, just how diverse and intricate the world is around them. We are far past the days of a gender binary and archaic standards of beauty that only value one set of traits over another.

Some people are still stunned by the end of the video and the powerful message from a male, Latin trap rapper.

By the end of the 4-minute video, Bad Bunny returns and begins getting kissed on the cheek by women and men. The video finishes with Bad Bunny face-to-face with his female counterpart, almost as if they’re looking at a mirror version of themselves and engage in a kiss.

Social media is a great way to spread your news. It seems like Bad Bunny might secretly be trying to spread some special news. A video on his girlfriend’s Instagram has everyone speculating that the Puerto Rican artist is now engaged.

It’s amazing how one video can send people into a series of tailspins.

It seems like a woman innocently sipping a smoothie and enjoying her day. However, if you look closely, you will see that the young woman is actually wearing a ring on an important finger.

The news is spreading fast all over social media.

Nothing has been confirmed but social media works as good as a small-town rumor mill. As soon as one person sees it, everyone has to know about it. Like, it can never just be a little secret for people hold among themselves. Twitter is the land of snap reactions and unfounded claims.

The rumor has already started breaking hearts across the internet.

Honestly, the best part about celebrities is believing that you can one day be their boo. Now, with this cryptic video, it is clear that Bad Bunny’s heart is being permanently taken away from us.

Some folks are just mad.

Like, calm down. It is literally not a big deal because of the likelihood of finding and marrying a celebrity is pretty low. Hollywood has spent too much time trying to get us to believe that that was so possible.

Some people are happy for the young woman finding happiness.

Nothing wrong with celebrating someone who is winning at life. If you were engaged to Bad Bunny, you’d be happy too.

Fans Are Worried After Bad Bunny Was Rushed To Hospital For Emergency Surgery

The year 2020 just won’t stop. Now it’s trying to come for San Benito – and his stans aren’t having any of it. In the same week that we find out Naya Rivera went missing (her remains have since been recovered) and a once cherished brand, Goya Foods, is now under a full scale boycott for heaping praise on Donald Trump, we find out that Bad Bunny went into emergency surgery over the weekend.

Over the weekend, Bad Bunny was rushed into the hospital for emergency surgery.

According to El Heraldo de México, the El Conejo Malo was hospitalized on Friday for an emergency operation due to severe appendicitis. The paper reported that the star was admitted to the Doctors Center in Puerto Rico’s capital, San Juan.

According to the outlet, he will need to stay in the hospital for another four or five days to recover from his emergency surgery, which was reportedly performed within the first hours of his admission to the hospital.

Bad Bunny’s publicist confirmed to Telemundo that “Bad Bunny had an emergency appendicitis surgery yesterday. This is why he was taken into the hospital. He’s doing well and is currently recovering at the hospital.” The publicist told Telemundo that the singer is expected to recover and be fine.

The reggaetónero hasn’t posted on social media since mid-May, making it all the more difficult for fans to piece together the events that led to his hospital admission. Once news broke that he had been admitted to the hospital, rumors started to fly that the “Yo Perreo Sola” singer had contracted the COVID-19 virus. Although appendicitis is no fun and a very serious matter, fans were thankful it wasn’t Coronavirus.

Just last week, San Benito was making history on the cover of Playboy.

Bad Bunny’s hospitalization comes just days after he graced the cover of Playboy magazine in all his glory – making history in the process. He was the first ever man (aside from magazine founder Hugh Hefner) to land the cover unaccompanied.

Fans were eating it up.

“Ladies and gentlemen, I give you… perfection!” one fan wrote about his Playboy appearance, while another emphasized the magazine spread and accompanying interview were “everything I need.”

The collective reaction on Twitter was one of shock and disappointment.

As if 2020 – hell, even the past week – couldn’t get more intense, Bad Unny had to be hospitalized. Many just can’t comprehend the epic disaster that is 2020. One person on Twitter summed up the last few days succinctly saying: “Naya Rivera is missing. Tiktok is possibly being banned. A Trump supporter disrespectfully put a MAGA hat on Selena’s statue. Goya’s cancelled. Bad Bunny is at the hospital. All in one day. WE GET IT 2020 YOU’RE CHAOTIC AS HELL. STOP DOING THIS TO US.”

But fans from across the world are sending Bad Bunny good vibras.

Twitter erupted with messages of love and support for San Benito.

“Where do I sign up to give a limb, lung whatever he needs bruh,” one devoted fan wrote on the platform upon learning of the star’s health condition.

“Bad Bunny in the f–king hospital,” another lamented, adding that “2020 can’t get any worse.”

“If he goes, I go!” wrote another of Bad Bunny’s ride-or-dies, though we are here to inform that no one has to go anywhere since it appears the singer is in recovery, and should be heading back out and about into the world in a matter of days. 

Get well soon Bad Bunny!
