Rogelio De La Vega Is Killing The Game On Twitter And You Just Have To See For Yourself

If you’ve seen “Jane the Virgin,” then you already love Rogelio de la Vega, Jane’s long last dad who turned up right when Jane was about to marry Michael. Also, he’s a telenovela superstar and on JTV, he has a huge Twitter following (that he loves to talk about).

Turns out, someone has been running a Twitter account with 88k followers in his name, and we have questions.

Like, is this actually the real Rogelio?

Tell me you don’t hear his voice saying this right now. Just like the real Rogelio, he knows how to engage with his fans.

Because his priorities line up with the real Rogelio.

I’m starting to think this is the real Rogelio. But then I get sad when I remember there is no real Rogelio. :'(

For now, we’ll bask in the glory of his fictional made real Twitter account.

By the way, this is his Twitter profile pic. It wouldn’t be authentic if there wasn’t lavander in the photo.

Because it’s honestly the closest we’ll get to being in “Jane the Virgin.”

As Rogelio stans. And if I tweeted that and Rogelio responded with that, I just might.

But it begs the question: Who is running this account?

OK, it has to be him. There are six exclamation points in that one tweet. Classic Ro.

He has his own scenes ranked best to worst.

Rogelio is definitely very in love with himself, but he can admit there’s a hierarchy to his talent. I appreciate that, Ro.

Recipe for narcissism:

You know Rogelio would post a quiz like this. Of course, his fans know how to play right in. I wonder if this is what it’s like to be an actual celebrity.

He’s always helping us find the right words to react to his image.

Thanks, Rogelio. That is the word I was looking for.

Fun fact: Actor Jaime Camil is a telenovela star IRL, so there could only be one word: yummm.

LMAO, and you can 100 percetn hear Rogelio genuinely saying and believing this RT:

“She must have been dizzy with infatuation and spelled my name wrong, clearly.” It’s Ro’s world, and we’re just living in it.

ICYMI, this is what Rafael looks like:

Lavender V-neck. ✅

Look of surprise at being vulnerable to illness. ✅

Turning the moment into an opportunity to talk about his looks. ✅

This is 100 percent Rogelio endorsed.

So, if we’re to believe that some ghostwriter is running this account…

I have some theories. It could be a “Jane the Virgin” writer, though they seem swamped enough as it is to do something like this.

Could it be Jaime Camil himself?

CREDIT: @Rogeliodelavega / Twitter

I mean, this rug was created. This photo was taken. This is also 100 percent Jaime Camil endorsed, wouldn’t you think?

This tweet is so bizarre and so spot on, it has to be someone close to the character of Rogelio de la Vega, no?

CREDIT: @RogelioDeLaVega / Twitter

Because that is a very strange thing to just come up with as a fan. Come forward, whoever you are!

Just like Rogelio in JTV land, our Rogelio is obsessed with his looks.

CREDIT: @RogelioDeLaVega / Twitter

This is a huge deal, you guys. In his own words, “I’m not afraid of anything. Except acne and leprechauns.” A wrinkle is a permanent version of acne.

And he’s not afraid to show it, talk about it, complain about it, etc.

CREDIT: @RogelioDeLaVega / Twitter

Robaelio bae la Baega?!?! A genius is running this account and that’s the only thing I know for certain. Or else.. JTV Rogelio is a character based off a real life Rogelio.

Though this selfie seems like one only Jaime Camil could take.

CREDIT: @RogelioDeLaVega / Twitter

Maybe Jaime is just a truly devoted actor. Muchísimas gracias, Jaime por su dedicación a sus fans. (That would be me),

One thing Rogelio might love as much as himself is Xiomara.

CREDIT: @RogelioDeLaVega / Twitter

The mother of his long lost child, Jane, and his twice wife. Well, the first time they were super drunk and had a Vegas elopement.

When Xo was dating Bruce, Rogelio tried to start these hashtags:

I could get behind it, tbh. Though I ended up feeling bad for the guy. How can you compete with the father of your love’s kid, who happens to be an exceptionally charming telenovela star?

Though the dedication to this account throughout the duration of the show has been epic.

CREDIT: @RogelioDeLaVega / Twitter

We love that Ro could put his favorite color aside for one day in favor of the world’s largest protest for women’s rights.

Ro has also shown us his softer sides online.

CREDIT: @RogelioDeLaVega / Twitter

Though now, I wonder if this person had some insider information. Was this a lead on for us to keep thinking about Michael? I have so many questions and I need answers.

When the show announced the next season would be it’s last, he was all of us.

CREDIT: @RogelioDeLaVega / Twitter

I’m still hanging from that cliff. There’s only room for one more #TeamMichael or #TeamRafael decision for Jane to make. Here’s to hoping that this account keeps giving us the content we need from the one, the only, Rogelio de la Vega.

Latino Twitter Gifted The World With These Seriously Good Inauguration Memes

Latino Twitter Gifted The World With These Seriously Good Inauguration Memes

Google/NBC

It’s official: the United States has a new president! Yesterday was Inauguration Day in the U.S. and we welcomed Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States and Kamala Harris as the 49th Vice President.

It was an historic day full of major milestones for the country and the world – and that was made obvious by the sheer amount of attention paid to the day’s events. One has to look no further than the amount of memes that were produced in the wake of the inauguration, from Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga to Bernie Sanders and the adiós to Donald and Melania Trump.

As usual, Latino Twitter showed up with the memes and left many of us on the floor laughing our a** off. These are some of the honorable mentions from a day full of historical moments and incredible memes.

Tío Bernie may have stolen the spotlight from President Biden with his very practical inauguration attire.

The long-serving Vermont senator was there to watch proceedings, bracing the D.C. cold to witness Biden being sworn in as president. To withstand the cold climes, Sanders came prepared in a big old reliable coat and mittens – with his inaugural look and general demeanour waiting for the event to begin capturing the creativity of the internet through a series of ‘Cold Bernie’ memes.

Bernie was everywhere!

The former presidential candidate was popping up in all sorts of places as the Internet memed him into a frenzy.

And he was all of us…

The former aspiring presidential candidate later addressed the attention his outfit was getting in an interview with Gayle King, noting: ‘You know in Vermont we know something about the cold and are not so concerned about good fashion, we want to keep warm and that’s what I did today.’

The Internet has even created a website where you can insert Tío Bernie into any scene you want with Google Maps.

And yes, it actually works!

Michelle Obama told us all how she felt without telling us all how she felt.

When Michelle and Barack Obama departed the White House in 2017 to make way for Donald and Melania Trump to take over the reigns, Michelle did not hide how difficult and upsetting she found the moment. So a lot of people were thrilled to see the Michelle we know and love, happy, thrilled and generally paving the way at the 2021 inauguration ceremony.

Lady Gaga giving the world Hunger Games vibes…

Lady Gaga had the honour of performing the American national anthem, ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ and, of course, she ‘killed’ it. The dramatic and rousing performance was made even better by her custom-made Schiaparelli gown, adorned in the US colours and complete with patriotic hidden meanings. However some thought they’d seen it – particularly the brooch – before…

Then there were the adiós Trump memes that left Mexican Twitter on fire!

A la verga! Adiós, Señor Trump! 👋

This one is too good!

I. Can’t. Stop. Laughing.

Mexican Facebook was also on fire!

This Twitter user is too right, Mexican Facebook really is undefeated!

And some want to reclaim red hats!

If you could bring back red hats, what would yours say?

Cardi B and Olivia Rodrigo Had an Adorable Exchange on Twitter and Now Fans Are Calling For a Collab

Cardi B and Olivia Rodrigo Had an Adorable Exchange on Twitter and Now Fans Are Calling For a Collab

You may have heard of Olivia Rodrigo, the 17-year-old Disney Channel actress who has recently take the music industry by storm with the success of her debut single, “Driver’s License”.

Well you wouldn’t be the only one who is thinking about her. Recently, Cardi B tweeted about the viral song, namely lamenting over the fact that she does not have her driver’s license.

On Tuesday, Cardi tweeted out her frustration about the fact that she has to rely on other people to fulfill her late-night McDonald’s cravings.

“Just like that girl [who] wrote a song about getting her driver’s license, Imma write a song about the struggle of not having a drivers license,” she wrote. “I really wanted my McDonald’s at 4am last night instead of today, but I couldn’t so I felt asleep hungry.” More relatable words have never been spoken, tbh.

Shocked that the Bronx-born rapper even knows who she is, Rodrigo tweeted a response back at Cardi.

“Girl i will pick u up and take u wherever u wanna go,” Rodrigo wrote back.

Cardi, for her part, seemed excited to find a driver to take her on late-night McDonald’s runs. She wrote back: “Yaaayyy!!! Let’s go to McDonald’s and get happy meals!”

Cue the influx of Twitter stans demanding a future Olivia Rodrigo x Cardi B collab.

Olivia Rodrigo is just as surprised about “Driver’s License” success as everyone else is.

Rodrigo recently told Billboard that this past week, when “Driver’s License” shot to No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart has been “the weirdest week of my whole life.”

Rodrigo was a relatively unknown Disney Channel star on Disney+’s “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” before this song hit the airwaves. Now she’s a pop sensation.

“So many people that I look up to have reached out and expressed their love for the song, which is absolutely surreal,” she told Billboard. But I truly am just the same 17-year-old girl, doing statistics homework in my bedroom.”

While many people are wondering what Rodrigo’s background is, she is proudly half-Filipino.

While some people have mistakenly called Olivia Rodriguez Latina, she is actually of Filipino descent, just like previous “High School Musical” star, Vanessa Hudgens. Just like Latin American countries, the Philippines were colonized by Spain–that is why so many people of Filipino descent have Spanish-sounding last names.

Rodrigo has talked at length about her cultural and familial roots. “My great-grandfather immigrated here from the Philippines when he was just a teenager. He’s my grandma’s dad, and my grandpa is also Filipino as well,” Rodrigo revealed in an interview with the Center for Asian American Media back in 2018.

“My dad grew up in a house where they were always making Filipino food, his grandpa always spoke Tagalog. All of those traditions have trickled down to our generation.”
