Well, now we have the full story.

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.

Cardi B Just Created An Instagram Account For Kulture And It’s The Cutest Thing Ever

Cardi B Just Created An Instagram Account For Kulture And It’s The Cutest Thing Ever

There’s a new influencer in town and her name is Kulture Kiari. 

On Saturday, Cardi B posted a photo of 2-year-old Kulture to her Instagram page, writing: “Follow @KultureKiari new IG…So much cool cute baby stuff coming up.”

The Instagram page Cardi was linking to was a brand new page dedicated to the chart-topping rapper’s daughter, Kulture.

So far, the page has only thirteen photos posted, but has already racked up over 700,000 followers–and counting. 

A few of the pictures show Kulture in peak-cute form, wearing an adorable plaid skirt and pink cardigan. She also has a big white bow fixed on top of her head. 

The rest of the photos range from Kulture swimming in a pool to experimenting with Snapchat filters. All of the pictures have captions written in first-person, like “I look like mommy here” and “My mom was annoying me but it’s ok cause I look cute.”

The Instagram account even has some #TBT photos of when culture was a baby–one notably cute one where she’s trying mashed potatoes for the first time.

Naturally, Cardi’s fans are eating up all the extra Kulture content, writing comments like “Kulture is looking all cute” and “She is so freaking beautiful”.

Commenters couldn’t help but exclaim over Kulture’s fashionable outfits, accessories and hairstyles. 

In the past, Cardi has defended her decision to dress Kulture in expensive designer clothing, saying that her child is in the public eye and deserves to be dressed as well as she is.

“If I’m fly and Daddy’s fly, then so is the kid. If I’m wearing Cha-nay-nay, my kid’s having the same, you know what I’m saying,” she said on Instagram. “Because if I was looking like a bad b**ch, expensive b**ch and I have my kid looking like a bum bum, then y’all would be talking s**t.”

Kulture’s new Instagram page comes just days after Cardi B filed for divorce from husband of three years, Offset.

While she has largely stayed mum on the topic, she recently broke her silence via Instagram, explaining the reason behind the divorce. Cardi said she was simply “tired of the arguments” and that her and Offset “grew apart”. She also added that she “hasn’t shed one tear” over the dissolution of her marriage.

Interestingly enough, Offset has previously been candid about his desire for Kulture to stay out of the public eye and lead a relatively normal life. “I want my kids to be kids. I don’t like them having Instagram, I don’t want to move to LA, so there won’t be cameras in their face,” he told The Breakfast Club in 2019. “I keep my kids in public school, I don’t want my kid to be spoiled.”

Cardi, it looks like, has other plans.

The Long Awaited Trailer To JLo And Maluma’s ‘Marry Me’ Is Finally Here

The Long Awaited Trailer To JLo And Maluma’s ‘Marry Me’ Is Finally Here

One of the year’s biggest collaborations is starting to make more progress after being largely shut down thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic. Of course, we’re talking about the upcoming highly-anticipated Jennifer Lopez film, Marry Me, which also stars Maluma in his acting debut.

Although we still have a while to wait before the movie makes its big screen debut (not until 2021), we’re finally getting our first look at what the duo will look like on screen along with other exciting details about the project.

Marry Me finally has an official trailer and JLo and Maluma fans couldn’t be more excited.

It seems like we’ve been hyped up for this film forever – and thanks to Coronavirus, we kinda have. But finally, Universal has released the teaser for Marry Me, and it reveals a few new details about the film and its cast. Along with J.Lo, the film stars Owen Wilson, Sarah Silverman, and Colombian singer Maluma in his major feature debut.

The film was originally announced last summer and production began in October 2019 but much of it was shut down once the Coronavirus struck. The film is directed by Kat Coiro (It’s Always Sunny in PhiladelphiaDead to Me) and features original music by Lopez and Maluma, which sounds too perfect to be legal, sorry.

To celebrate the cinematic milestone, López and Maluma have reported that they are recording a full-length soundtrack of original songs. Maluma Baby is hyped from the time he’s spent in the studio with J.Lo (who wouldn’t be?), telling a reporter last year, “It’s been such an amazing experience also working, doing music. I mean we never stop.”

So here’s everything we know about the film so far.

Based on the graphic novel by Bobby Crosby, the film is described as a “modern love story about celebrity, marriage and social media.” López plays musical sensation Kat Valdez, who agrees to live-stream her marriage with her fellow superstar Bastian (Maluma — fictional or not, this is officially the hottest couple on Planet Earth and we can’t unsee it) in order to boost the sales of their new single and duet, “Marry Me.”

When she finds out that Bastian has been cheating on her, however, she freaks out and decides to marry a stranger in the audience watching: divorced high-school math teacher Charlie Gilbert (Owen Wilson), who was dragged to the event by his daughter. The unexpected sequence of events leads the two down a path toward unexpected true love.

Even with a new movie coming out, both JLo and Maluma have been hard at work in the studio.

Just last month, Maluma surprise released his latest album – PAPI JUANCHO. It’s Maluma’s fifth studio album and was produced alongside longtime collaborators Rude Boyz. Although the album features Maluma’s alter ego as the main star, it also includes several guest appearances from a number of reggaetón royals, including Justin Quiles, Lenny Tavarez, Myke Towers, and Jory Boy. PAPI JUANCHO was made during quarantine between the singer’s hometown of Medellín and Miami, his U.S. base.

Meanwhile, JLo has teased new music in recent weeks. Jennifer Lopez posted a picture with producer Ryan Tedder over the weekend in which she promised that new music is “just around the corner.”

The snap, in which Lopez is sporting dark red lips and a messy up hairdo alongside the OneRepublic leader and veteran songwriter/producer — rocking a black Mad Tasty hat — doesn’t offer much more detail about what the duo are cooking up, but Lopez seems pretty psyched.

“Can u feeeeeel it… new music just around the corner!!” Lopez wrote.

It would be a welcome return for Lopez, who has only released a remix of “If You Had My Love” so far this year, as fans wait for her to announce a release date for her as-yet-untitled ninth studio album. Lopez’s last full-length was 2014’s A.K.A., which featured the singles “I Luh Ya Papi,” “First Love” and “Booty.”
