Maluma deleted his Instagram account after receiving backlash for publishing a video showing him playing with a baby lion.

Translation: “Maluma says goodbye to Instagram, outraged by criticism of this endearing photo.”

The Colombian singer was in Mexico City kicking off his world tour for his new album, “11:11.” While in Mexico he visited an animal sanctuary and uploaded the controversial video.

He probably couldn’t have predicted that the seemingly innocent post would lead him to close his favorite social media account.

In the video, he is petting and playing with a baby lion named Mala Mia. This triggered a wave of criticism as followers assumed that the clip was about a new pet and that owning an animal like that was offensive and a violation of animal rights.

And seriously, people were not having it.

Translation: “Pure ego. Canceled.”

Some on Twitter quickly got right to the point, saying that they were totally over the singer. And blaming him and his ego for the decision.

Many were concerned as to why this baby lion was being used as a photo prop.

Translation: What is this animal doing out of its habitat?

Out of the nearly 10,000 comments on the Instagram video, manuy of them were wondering why Maluma would use a baby lion as a prop – even if it was one that he had been supporting.

One angry Instagram user demanded the animal be put back.

His comment garnered more than 200 likes and many more comments from people agreeing with him.

Fans and non-fans alike came for the 25-year-old singer accusing him of being irresponsible by posing with a baby lion.

Translation: “It’s not that there are stupid people, it is that beings like you are not aware that every f*cking they do or say is a message to the world, if you have a lion cub, what message are you sending? Be conscious you stupid child.”

WIth a platform of more than 40 million people, Maluma should be more careful with what he posts. Even if the lion was a rescue that he helped support, he should have made that very clear in his post and gave a shout out to how important it is to protect animals like Mala Mia.

In all the noise, there were some fans who came to Maluma’s defense.

Translation: “Stupid people, they criticize without finding out or informing themselves. It is a sanctuary where they rescue animals from hunters, exploiters, circuses, etc. They can not return them to their habitat because they did not learn to survive. Criticism is easy.”

ICYMI, this is the video that set the whole thing into motion.

Since posting it on Saturday, the video has been viewed almost 3 million times and has racked up nearly 10,000 comments.

And for the true chismosas out there, this is Maluma’s angry clap back video:

The reggaetonero did not hide his anger and calls out fans as “ignorant and stupid.” He then went on the following rant:

“I was looking at the comments of my last post with a lion, Mala Mia. I don’t know, I don’t understand why people are so stupid, people so stupid that they think it’s my pet. They do not understand that this animal is there because it was rescued. They do not understand it would be dead if it had not been rescued.”

Maluma even put all the haters on blast asking what they were doing to help animals.

“Why is it still in their head that I would have a lion as a pet? Why, instead of writing stupid things and arguing and judging, why don’t you go out and buy food for dogs that need it on the street? Why not go and save animals, as Eduardo is doing with the foundation? Stop arguing and don’t be ignorant.”

Wow. Just wow.

In the now-deleted videos, an offended Maluma emphasized that he is dedicated to protecting animals.

“I’m an animal lover and I always be. I would never support the trafficking of animals. How could you even think that I could have an animal like that as a pet?” he lamented.

Despite all the drama, Maluma’s Instagram blackout only lasted a day.

So for those of us who were looking for our daily dose of #thristraps, you’ll be glad to know that all of Maluma’s thirsty photos are back on Instagram.

The Internet Is Thirsting For Maluma And J.Lo As A Couple Following News They’ll Star In A New Movie Together

It looks like Maluma is ready to add actor to his resume. The “Felices Los 4” singer has just been confirmed to play Jennifer Lopez’s cheating husband in the new film, Marry Me.

And the Internet let out a collective..uffff.

It’s confirmed that Maluma and Jennifer Lopez, two giant Latino icons, will play alongside each other in a new movie.

Translation: Maluma is on his way to the big screen. He’ll play a Rockstar in “Marry Me” and Jennifer Lopez will be his wife. And there will be a third played by Owen Wilson will be a math teacher.

They’ll be playing an engaged couple in the new film, Marry Me.

The plotline sounds like it has hints of Selena, Lopez’s breakthrough, plus 2018’s A Star Is Born—which recently found another pop star (Lady Gaga) playing a…pop star. And considering Lopez just recovered from an epic power outage at Madison Square Garden in real life, she’s bound to take this role on as a natural.

But since he cheats on her and J.Lo marries someone else…we can’t help but wonder how big Maluma’s part will be.

In it, a pop star (here, played by Lopez) gears up to take the stage and marry her famous fiancé (Maluma) at New York City’s Madison Square Garden—only to find the man being unfaithful with her assistant. As the official description for the movie states, she then proceeds to have a meltdown on stage…and then picks a random guy from the audience (Owen Wilson) to say “I do” to instead.

Some on Twitter were giving a shout out to J Lo for helping get more Latinos on the big screen.

Films, especially big Hollywood films need wayyyy more Latino representation and including a Colombian singer in the mix is a great move on behalf of STX Studios.

After his record with Madonna and collaboration with J Balvin, among others, Maluma is quickly becoming a household name and this role with J Lo will only help propel him to even more success.

While others were just happy (read: thirsty) to see Maluma up there on a big giant screen.

Maluma already gives his fans plenty to see on his Instagram but imagine all of that man up on the big screen?! Yea, we are too.

This Body Positivity Activist Is Jessica Torres And You Need To Listen To What She Says

Maybe we all deserve hundreds more Jessica Torres to remind us that this world and its fashion isn’t just for las flacas. Jessica Torres is a plus-size model and body positive activist who isn’t going to be shamed for hiding her nalgas or accentuating the “right” curves. We have all the curves which means they’re all right.

Jessica Torres is keeping it real and combatting fat shaming by just straight up loving her self and her body. She’s calling out magazines every time they reshape a woman’s mind to cover their belly or show it off. She’s posting images of the “most unflattering outfit for [her] body type” to prove a point to the fashion industry. Fashion for plus-size women shouldn’t be about how to best cover and mask their bodies. It should be about fashion. If Jessica Torres isn’t the most fashionable chingona from the Bronx, we don’t know who is. I said it.

Her journey towards crop tops wasn’t out of self-love, but rather a love for fashion.

She started her plus-size style blog to show off her outfits and inspire other plus-size women to live “fashionable fat lives,” she writes for HipLatina. Her blog was meant to be a stepping stone to get a job in fashion. 

Torres essentially became a body positive advocate by accident.

“Any plus-size body that grows a following on social media and takes full body pictures is instantly labeled a self-acceptance warrior,” she said. She was just wearing bright colors and modeling off the clothes that inspire her, and a social media following just naturally happened.

Still, she didn’t love her body.

But she did notice that she was holding herself back from embracing a diverse range of fashion because of her “body type.” Magazines love to dress women like they’re fruit: pear shapes, apple shapes, etc. Instead of dressing women for fashion, the clothes are meant to hide certain parts of their bodies.

Once she realized she was holding her fashion style back because of the “hate” she had for her body, she knew she needed to change.

Like so many of us, she didn’t walk outside in a crop top and a skirt for the first time feeling confident and gleaming with body positivity. But you fake it till you make it, and now, Jessica Torres identifies as a self-acceptance advocate.

For every outfit she was afraid to wear, she had the courage to open up about it on social media.

Credit: thisisjessicatorres / Instagram

She started sharing stories of being fat-shamed at the doctor and saw the comment threads as a communal space of support and inspiration for other ladies living while fat. When she was afraid to wear a two-piece for the first time, she wrote about that, too, and found other women who gained the courage to do the same in solidarity.

As her following grows, she’s also experienced fat-shaming within the body-positivity community.

Credit: thisisjessicatorres / Instagram

Her body was always being compared to Ashley Graham’s or Iskra Lawrence. When Torres went up a single size in pants, she noticed how society still only accepts certain curves that are deemed beautiful. Meanwhile, others promote obesity. 

Torres is staying present to the hypocrisies and to her self.

Caption: “Throwing it back to that time I was butt nekkid and wet and Kelly told me to sit on her lap.”

Being a social media influencer hasn’t made her any less real.

Torres has partnered with Mod Cloth, Dove, and JcPenney to promote body positivity. She’s sharing her insider tips for strapless bras with the thickest, most comfy straps. She’s also still a person who tells publicists she farted. 😂

She’s not playing like her life is all together.

While this would be very disappointing for all our mamis to read, it is deeply comforting to us all who have been traumatized by Saturday limpias. Where’s the link, Jessica?

Jessica Torres is the boss of all of us, and that’s how we like it.

Tell me more about how I can all parts of myself, not just the ones that make me look like an hourglass. Who chose hourglasses as the epitome of sexiness anyway? All we know is that self-hate is a time thief and we’re done robbing ourselves of love, time and fashion, thanks to Jessica Torres.
