Bad Bunny Hating Dad Wakes Up To Find Out His Daughter Is The Star Of New Music Video

Like so many Latino dads, Pepo García is using his Facebook platform to express all the opinions. He shares photos of his golden retrievers wearing hats, protests “los animales” who hunt actual wild animals, and Hurricane Maria recovery. Also, six months ago, he shared about how he thinks Bad Bunny is a bad role model for young men and women.

This week, he woke up to see his own daughter land the lead role in Bad Bunny’s latest music video, “Callaita.” 🤭

He had something to say about that.

Apparently, during the last six months, his youngest daughter, Natalia, started a modeling career. Claro, her first big job would be as Bad Bunny’s love interest in a music video.

Pepo has two daughters and two adorable golden retriever hijos.

Of course, Pepo is worried about the entire genre of reggaeton affecting young girls’ minds, but Natalia has a mind of her own.

“Those who know me, know I’m not a huge fan of Bad Bunny,” Pepo wrote.

“A few months ago, I made a post criticizing the message of some of his music, and that of his foundation,” Pepo confessed. Of course, we had to dig up the post and it’s glorious.

“The message can’t be different.”

Late last year, Pepo had posted this message: “The message can’t be different. On the stage it can’t be one and at the good bunny foundation all the opposite. That causes confusion!!!”

He was upset that the Good Bunny Foundation was touting teaching “good values,” while he thinks El Conejo Malo is singing los malos.

Consistency was the ultimate value to Pepo. The gist of his comments was along the lines of, “How could Bad Bunny be singing against domestic violence and then sing about partying with the ladies?”

A very active comment thread commenced.

Los jovenes coming to the defense of Bad Bunny and los viejos aghast that Good Bunny would want to teach good values.

The best part was that Natalia actually called out her dad on Facebook.

Pepo gave the classic response: I’m allowed to express my opinions, mija.

The best part is that Pepo wished “I was wrong…and make me look bad.”

He did acknowledge that the jovenes might have a different perspective. In one comment reply, he said, “Although I recently asked some young people how they felt with the lyrics and if it was not offensive to them and the answer was that they did not set on that. It seems to be like bad bunny says it’s a new religion his music. If it went on the line of values – – which I don’t think I do – – I would be the first one to buy and listen to his music.”

His daughter helped make that happen.

In his recent post, he announced that, “One of the people who disagreed with me was my youngest daughter, Natalia, who stayed ‘Callaita.’”

Update: Pepo still doesn’t like Bad Bunny.

Then he announced to his Facebook friends that, “After this Natalia entered the field of modeling and to my surprise today in the morning, she called me to inform me that her first job in her new career was as the primary model of the new song ‘Callaita’ by Bad Bunny that has just come out.”

Sorry, Bad Bunny.

You might not have won over Pepo’s heart, but la nueva religion is going strong, conejito.

This Father Hates Reggaetón But His Daughter Is A Bad Bunny Super Fan So They Wrote A Play About It

There is nothing that a Latino dad wouldn’t do for his princesa and that includes, apparently, writing a play about her and her adoration for the Boricua pop culture icon known as Bad Bunny. If that wasn’t enough, his daughter takes center stage at the play. Keep on reading for more on this adorbs padre-hija collaboration. If you are in Puerto Rico and are a Bad Bunny fan, you should definitely have a look… at least out of curiosity. 

The title of the play is “Mi Hija Ama a Bad Bunny”, o sea “My Daughter Loves Bad Bunny” and it will have a limited run at the end of the month.

The play was written by this man, Agustín Rosario, who will also direct. The play will have a limited run on September 27-29 at the Teatro Arrivi in Santurce and has previously done the rounds in community theaters throughout la isla del encanto. Seeing a family collaboration on the stage must be pretty special! Rosario had enjoyed success with two previous plays, “Hijas de su madre” and “Nos vamos pal cara”. Rosario returns to acting, and says: “I am acting again to be with my daughter in her professional debut and to collaborate in her development as an actor. 

It is being described as a comedy that explores an intergenerational clash… the dad hates reggaeton and the daughter lives for it!

Long story short, the dad thinks that Bad Bunny’s lyrics and overall persona is violent and not a good influence for his little princess. This is all told as the father is going through a marital breakup, so he is not in a very good place. He seems to be the typical viejo gruñón. So the table is set for a good old fashioned telenovela-like plot with plenty of enredos.

As Nuevo Dia describes it, the show is about “A generational gap and resentment due to his divorce”. Sounds like one of those movies that Robert DeNiro has starred in recently.

The male protagonist not only takes on his own personal crusade against music, but also against technology and anything else that doesn’t fit into his narrow, conservative worldview. The cast also includes Agustin Rosario, Ile Nicole Rosario, Noelia Crespo, Ali Warrington and Deddie Romero. 

The plot line is very similar to a real life story about a father who spoke out against the gender violence inherent in Bad Bunny’s lyrics… only for his daughter to ACTUALLY STAR in one of the raeggetonero’s music videos!

The poor man’s name is Pepo García and earlier this year he published a post on Facebook basically trashing Bad Bunny. Well, his daughter Natalia started a career in modeling and, lo and behold, she landed a great, star-making and profitable gig: the leading lady the video for the Bad Bunny song “Callaita”! Damn, las vueltas que da la vida, compas. Did Rosario draw inspiration from this real life event? BTW, Pepo García later retracted from his comments and wrote that the callaito should be him. Calladito te ves mas bonito! 

How many Latino fathers and daughters can relate to this story? We guess many!

Reggaeton is a very controversial genre due to the explicit nature of some of the lyrics and the fact that it embodies some ideas of toxic masculinity and traditional gender roles that are frankly medieval (we hate to admit it!). So the plot might resonate with many families where parents are literally scratching their heads over the stuff that their kids listen too! 

But we gotta remember that what was controversial a few years ago is no big deal now!

Yes, there was a time when Elvis’ hip thrusts were deemed as immoral, as un insulto a las buenas costumbres. 

And let’s give Bad Bunny a break: he is actually pretty socially and politically engaged. Maybe the dad in the play can like him a little bit?

When things got candentes in the island around the resignation of the now former governor Ricardo Roselló, he even paused his music career to join the protests that attempted to make Roselló step down as his homophobic and sexist views were made public.

Bad Bunny wrote then in an Instagram post: “I am pausing my career. After [my concerts] my agenda was to fly back to Miami. But I’m canceling everything. I’m pausing my career because I don’t have the heart or mind to do music […] I’m going to Puerto Rico. I’m not going to turn my back on you. We have to continue taking the streets”. And well, his efforts alongside Residente and Ricky Martin, paid off. 

Here’s Why Bad Bunny Jumped On A Soundcloud Track To Help A Security Guard Launch His First Single

Here’s Why Bad Bunny Jumped On A Soundcloud Track To Help A Security Guard Launch His First Single

San Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, more commonly known as Bad Bunny, El Conejo Malo, is very familiar with the transformative effects of SoundCloud. Bad Bunny was bagging groceries at a supermarket when he gained a cult following on SoundCloud. Since then, he’s risen to international fame, with dozens of accolades under his belt. Last year, he won the Latin American Music Awards Artist of the Year award and Billboard awarded him the Top Latin Song of the year for “Te Bote.”

Bad Bunny’s style and attitude might seem odd to some, but that’s given him all the success in the world. Like a true saint, he has a history of prioritizing his people over fame and glory. Just last month, Bad Bunny canceled a European concert tour last minute to fly home to Puerto Rico and participate in the Ricky Renuncia protests.

For the last year, Bad Bunny has been secretly working with other SoundCloud traperos to help boost their career.

In a way, nothing has changed for Bad Bunny when it comes to what matters most to him. He’s prioritizing Boricuas and Latin trap, hanging out with his friends, and listening to SoundCloud. 

That’s how he discovered Jesús Antonio Dominguez Collazo, A.K.A. Shootter Ledo.

Ledo has a biology degree and just fools around with music on the side. Right now, he’s working as a security guard. It just so happened that Dominguez and Benito had a mutual friend in La Paciencia, a producer with ears in all the right places. Last fall, La Paciencia played “Subimos de Rango” for Bad Bunny, and the trapero couldn’t get enough of it. Apparently, Ledo and Omy de Oro had spent just a couple hours making the track before they posted it to SoundCloud.

Bad Bunny loved the song so much that he created some verses to add.

La Paciencia had given him a heads up that they wanted to share the track with Bad Bunny to see what he thought of the song as a single. Dominguez says he honestly hadn’t even thought of getting off SoundCloud and creating a track, let alone with El Conejo Malo, when he got the call that San Benito already was writing verses for the song. 

It’s no mistake that Bad Bunny is helping produce new artists.

It seems that La Paciencia and Bad Bunny had set up the hotel room specifically to hear artists spit lines in person. When Dominguez first walked into the hotel room with Bad Bunny, he was nervous. Bad Bunny knew it, and afterward, asked him to come back the next morning to try again. For Bad Bunny, it felt like he was “forcing it.”

So Dominguez went back to his security guard night shift and went back the next morning with new verses.

He literally wrote new verses during his shift and nailed it. La Paciencia and Bad Bunny took him on and more. Bad Bunny is a featured artist on the single. “What that man did, no one does…,” Dominguez said. “The most popular artist in the world did a remix to someone else’s first song. And he didn’t even know me…. no tiene nombre lo que él hizo.”

The track’s cover art honors El Conejo Malo’s own letras.

It’s a full-circle moment when Bad Bunny gets to rap about his Gucci wallet and how, “Si quiero, me retiro feliz y contento.” He knows that he’s in his moment, and that if he were to die, they’d erect a monument of him (Me muero y me hacen un monumento / estoy en mi momento).

Now, Ledo is just waiting to see if Bad Bunny’s help with “Subimos de Rango” jump-starts his music career.

“I’m going to see what fruits this [single] brings,” he says thinking about what’s next. “I’m going to see who sticks, who wants to collaborate. Pero, yo estoy puesto pa’ zumbar canciones… and get to where I need to get to.”

You can watch the full music video, by Shootter Ledo and Omy de Oro, featuring Bad Bunny right here.

The video premiered just two days ago and already has 700,000 views. The most liked comment on YouTube translates, “Wow, Bad Bunny with the surprising theme and bringing back trap. Thank you Bad Bunny.”
