Bad Bunny Reveals That He Was Shooting Scenes For ‘Narcos: Mexico’ Before The Pandemic And Fans Are Losing It

Still craving more Bad Bunny? Yea, me too. Despite two chart-topping albums and starring on the cover of Rolling Stone (being the first Latino Urbano artist to do so – I might add!), Benito isn’t even starting to get tired.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Bad Bunny let it slip that he was actually in the process of filming scenes for Narcos: Mexico before the Coronavirus pandemic hit.

From rapper to actor, Bad Bunny is looking to expand his portfolio. The Puerto Rican reggaetónero is currently quarantine with this partner, Gabriela, at an Airbnb in Puerto Rico. But just last week, he made history gracing the cover of Rolling Stone. Hidden in the cover story, by Suzy Exposito, was the admission that the superstar was in Mexico shooting scenes for Narcos: Mexico when the pandemic hit.

Like most series, production for the popular crime drama came to a halt in light of the COVID-19 outbreak. Bad Bunny is looking on the bright side of it all though, telling the outlet, “Maybe I needed the rest!”

Whether or not he “needed” the rest, there is no denying that it is well-deserved. At the time of the mid-March interview, the Grammy award-winning artist was having a great start to his year. His album Yo Hago Lo Que Me Da La Gana, translated “I Do Whatever I Want,” became the record holder as the highest-charting Spanish-language album in the U.S. He also participated in the experience of a lifetime when he joined Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, and J Balvin on state at the Super Bowl halftime show.

And apparently adding ‘actor’ to his resume has long been a goal of the ‘Ignorantes’ singer.

While it’s only a matter of time until Bad Bunny can hopefully get back to work, his acting debut should lead him well on the way to accomplishing another goal. 

“One of my goals is to be the voice of an animated character in Spanish,” he said in his Rolling Stone interview.

Now that you think back to the end of season two, it’s kind of obvious that there was more to come in the way of a likely season three. After all, the epic show chronicles the action-packed War on Drugs (from Colombia to Mexico) with no shortage of interesting narratives and even more interesting characters.

What started off as a show largely about infamous Colombian drug dealer Pablo Escobar has now grown into its own successful franchise with multiple story lines that make the show truly addictive. Not to mention the show has featured some of the best names in Latino actors, from Diego Luna and Michael Peña to Pedro Pascal and Wagner Maura. Now we can look forward to adding Bad Bunny aka. El Conejo Malo aka. Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio to the star-studded lineup. It also means it’s going to make the wait until 2021 (when the show is expected to make it’s season three debut) that much more difficult.

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.
