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.

Foul-Mouthed Karen Yells At People To Stop Playing Bad Bunny And Play ‘American’ Music Instead

Puerto Rico is part of the United States. Puerto Ricans are American citizens (without the right to vote). Music made in Puerto Rico would then be considered American music since it is part of the U.S. However, one Karen in Wisconsin just doesn’t understand that and had a complete meltdown.

A very angry white woman went on an expletive-filled rant against people barbecuing in the park because of their music.

My first Karen was today. Todo por que no le gusta la musica que escuchamos 😂 #KarenWantTalkToTheManager Stop Being Racist. To use this video in a commercial player or in broadcasts, please email licensing@storyful.com

A woman made a point recently to verbally attack a Puerto Rican family while barbecuing in a park. What did they do to offend the woman? They were playing Bad Bunny. The woman, who has not been identified, called on the group to play American music because they are in America.

“You are so fucking disrespectful,” the Wisconsin Karen told the group when they called her disrespectful. “Puerto Ricans. Fuck all this.”

During her rant, the group turns on Bad Bunny’s “Safaera” and continued to argue with her.

“Safaera” is one of Bad Bunny’s most popular songs. It would be pretty hard to convince people that this song is something that should be turned off. Like, Why can’t people just enjoy their time out and about without having to get into a racist, xenophobic argument?

Some Puerto Ricans on Twitter made sure to remind her how lucky she is to be in Wisconsin.

This isn’t the first time someone was verbally harassed in a park for showing their Puerto Rican heritage. One man was charged with a hate crime after trying to attack a woman in Chicago who was wearing a shirt with a Puerto Rican flag on it. It is a true testament to their resolve that the Puerto Rican family being yelled at were able to stay calm and level-headed. Granted, they did argue back but it seems they were provoked.

It seems the woman needs a basic civics lesson on how Puerto Ricans are Americans.

A poll conducted by Morning Consult found that half of Americans do not know that Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens. The confusion has been exacerbated by President Trump during the early stages of Hurricane Maria recovery. The Trump administration has been criticized for its treatment of Puerto Rico.

People commented on the Facebook video about how else the situation could have been handled.

If she wants to hear American music, then let her hear American music. Crank that volume all the way up and let her hear the true range of American music. There’s nothing better than educating someone when they let their ignorance be known.

One person is just feeling bad for the man clearly trying to get the confrontational woman moving.

He really just wants to keep it moving. It is almost like he realized before she did that being on camera saying racist things is not a good look in the time of social media and doxxing.

Smartphones have changed the way we live by giving us a chance to capture moments like this and broadcast them to the world. Social media serves as a way to really make the most out of the public shaming.

TV Special “Graduate Together” Gave The Class Of 2020 A Special Send-Off

Events across the world have been canceled because of Covid-19. This includes concerts, music festivals, Pride parades, and major sporting events. Yet, for high school seniors, their high school will end without the same traditions that many have enjoyed like prom and graduation.

LeBron James celebrated the graduating class of 2020 on a special night on television.

“You should’ve had a real graduation, I know. You should’ve had an incredible senior year, I know that as well. But you made a sacrifice, and you did it to keep your community safe and healthy,” James said during the broadcast.

James continued: “Our school are our safety net. Our people build our communities. To the class of 2020, as you celebrate tonight, do not forget your safety net. Every teacher, every coach, every pastor, they along with your friends and family got you to this moment. And now, it’s time to go to a new place.”

The special was filled with celebrities and public figures offering students words of encouragement as they close this chapter of their lives.

“Congratulations to everyone graduating,” Bad Bunny told the class of 2020 in Spanish. “I know that we are going through a very difficult and strong time for use, but we have to stay strong and don’t forget to be thankful and smile, even though I know that sometimes we don’t even want to smile. We have to look for a way to do it and stay positive.”

The musician added: “Work hard on everything that you set out to do, on all your goals, but remember that it doesn’t matter what we achieve. The most important thing is to respect each other. It’s respect and the values that we put into practice day to day that say who you are. They are what define us as people. Success is not measured in money. Success, to me, is the experiences and memories that we carry in our hearts forever.”

Zendaya gave the students, and teachers, a special message for the commencement ceremony.

The actress gave a special shoutout at the beginning of her speech to teachers. Zendaya noted that her mother is a teacher so she has first-hand knowledge of how hard teachers are working during this time. Hosting classes via Zoom with children is not the easiest way to teach in the world.

Zendaya then turned her talk to the graduating seniors. While the viral outbreak has interrupted the lives of billions of people, graduation is not the only defining moment of being a high school senior. Instead, Zendaya tries to remind the graduating class of 2020 that it is a series of life events that define your senior year. There is so much that people go through from the time they start school to the time they finish that truly define them and their experience. One moment, while memorable, is not the only thing that makes senior year the experience it is.

The class of 2020 was treated to a special shoutout from President Barack Obama.

Pres. Obama started by giving the students the same tired and true line. He highlighted how the adults that are making decisions are not all-knowing and are in fact learning as they go. This is something that we have all heard when we were younger but, for some reason, coming from Pres. Obama, it sounds empowering and calming. It really reminded people of what a president should sound like when addressing the American public.

Pres. Obama did call on the students to act differently then they had seen from some people in power. Specifically, Pres. Obama wanted to let students know that there was a right and a wrong way to respond to major events.

“Doing what feels good, what’s convenient, what’s easy — that’s how little kids think,” Pres. Obama told the seniors. He added. “Unfortunately, a lot of so-called grown-ups, including some with fancy titles and important jobs, still think that way — which is why things are so screwed up.”

The special ended with a performance from the Jonas Brothers and Karol G.

“Taping our performance was amazing to me,” Karol G told Billboard about her performance. “I enjoyed it as if it were my own graduation. To have the opportunity to reach so many people, give them a good time despite all we’re going through, to celebrate with them this special date … It meant a lot to me.”
