People Are Shook After Watching Residente And Rocky The Kid Argue About Domestic Violence

Did someone say machísmo is dead? During a radio bit, Residente and Rocky the Kid set out to discuss domestic violence against women, and as the conversation moved to social media, it devolved into threats of physical violence against each other. Brace yourselves. During a “Things You Didn’t Know” segment on Spanish radio program “El Despelote,” radio hosts Angelique “Burbu” Burgos and Roque “Rocky the Kid” José Gallart brought up a fun fact: The United Nations made Nov. 25 the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. Of course, this topic may feel close to home given that as many as 70 percent of women have experienced physical or sexual violence. To levy the heavy topic, Burbu asked her fellow radio hosts if they knew why the feminist movement identifies with the color purple.

They all said it was because of the color represents the color bruises leave on physically abused women, according to Primera Hora. Burbu clarified that it was because of the color blend of pink and blue, to signify equal rights.

Social media astrologer and influencer Mariela “Mela” Pabón sounded the alarms in a now-deleted tweet.

In the tweet, she called Rocky the Kid a “charlatán,” and called on the stars (in the sky) to “conspire so that this country has a future without you on the radio and television.” The tweet went viral, and it wasn’t until hours later that she realized Rocky the Kid wasn’t the first to say the feminist movement was represented by the color of a bruise. It was fellow radio host El Giga. She deleted the tweet and followed up with an apology tweet. 

Dear ones, I deleted the tweet because I want to be responsible with information,” she later tweeted in Spanish. “I listened to the complete audio and it is heard that it was not Rocky, but Giga who says it and the others speak that they thought the same. I heard it out of context and it is obvious that if heard alone, it shocks.” She went on to emphasize that, “we are in critical moments regarding gender violence in PR and these issues are sensitive. I will always denounce machismo wherever it comes from, but dialogue is also necessary to understand these issues. Therefore, I apologize.”

Still, her initial tweet set off a wave of angry responses, including from Residente.

While Residente responded to her initial, now-deleted tweet, he continued the conversation online to tweet, “What is scary is not the comment [about the bruises] but the people who defend the insensitivity in it. Normalizing this behavior encourages violence against women to be natural. You have to be an animal not to understand this!”

Later, he would take to Instagram to share an IGTV rant on the topic while the information was still not clarified. In the IGTV video, he passionately denounced Rocky The Kid (though later we learn that it was El Giga who thought up the bruise correlation), and called on the SBS radio station to take action. Residente captioned the video “Today we recognize the day against the violence done to women. my message is clear, we do not want more violence done by men to women. I’m sure that a network like SBS will do the right thing.”

Rocky the Kid responded to Residente’s passionate plea by calling him a “dangerous” person and accusing him of being an abuser.

You still with me on this novela? This is supposed to be about women, and here we are talking about men. Rocky the Kid had beef that Residente didn’t pull a Mela and take back his comments against Rocky the Kid. So, the next day, Rocky the Kid had his daily radio platform and used it to call Residente an impulsive, “even dangerous” person, claiming that Residente even has the “face of an abuser.” Rocky even threatened physical violence, “You’re going to slap me, but you’ll lose your nose.” Que que? Machísmo is alive and well, mi gente. Residente responded to say, “Stop defending these brutes and get yours. Imagine that your mother or grandmothers went through this and understand that you can not allow such comments.”

El Giga has not tweeted any response. Mela, however, tweeted, “I still think that the media are full of macharranerías and hope that this yields more responsible conversations of this topic in public forums. I will do the same to corroborate the info well before reacting impulsively.” She later screenshotted her tweets to her Instagram story to tell her followers that this was the last she will speak of it.

We Know It’s Hard To Keep Up, So We Rounded Up The Best Celebrity Beef Of The Year For You

@billboard / Twitter

If there is something we can always count on from show biz, it’s stars fighting other stars. As 2019 comes to an end, we’re looking back at the year in celebrity beef. It can be hard to keep track of celebrities who hate each other and why, but this list of 2019 celeb feuds will keep you informed on the latest celebrity rivalries and disputes.

Kevin Fret’s Mom vs. Ozuna

Instagram @ozuna

After the Puerto Rican Trap artist Kevin Fret died, his mom accused Ozuna of being involved in the artist’s homicide. Ozuna filed a complaint with the FBI alleging that late queer trapero Kevin Fret was blackmailing the Aura singer over the video. Ozuna confirmed his appearance in the video through a statement released by his manager Vincente Saavedra, and said that he was underage in the video and that it was “an error from the past.”Ozuna was interrogated by the authorities, but according to the police, he was not implicated in any criminal activities. 

Maluma vs. J Balvin

@maluma

The two reggaeton giants have been surrounded by rivalry rumours for years, and they had further enforced them by never working or appearing together. This year, they fired shots at each other in their joint music video for the collab track ‘Qué pena’. In the slick new music video, Maluma and Balvin take turns imitating each others’ Instagram personas: Maluma shouts into his phone, “This is for the culture man! Para la cultura!” Meanwhile, Balvin smooches himself in the mirror and purrs, “Maluma, baby. Mamacita.” So I guess, the air is clear now. There’s no conflict between them anymore, all is good in the universe.

Anuel AA & Bad Bunny Vs. Maluma

GAN-GA 👹 @bryanttmyers

A post shared by “REAL HASTA LA MUERTE” (@anuel_2blea) on

Anuel AA teased at a new song on his Instagram. He talked about the ice on his neck, his enemies and his squad, and went on to rap “Nunca flow Maluma, siempre real G.” Bad Bunny, on his part, is a fan of the line, and he took to twitter to share it.

Bryant Myers vs. Anuel AA

In an Insta Live in April, Bryant Myers challenged Anuel to a fight after the Real Hasta La Muerte brand porter insulted him in his single “Fulete.” “Pero, papi, tu no respetas a nadie, cabrón,” Myers responded.

Reggaetoneros vs. Grammy Latino

@nickyjam

Daddy Yankee, J Balvin, and a number of other famous Latin music artists announced their boycott of the 2019 Latin Grammy Awards due to whitewashing.The boycott was a response to the absence of Reggaeton musicians from the list of nominees for the show’s 10 primary award categories, despite the genre’s monumental rise to global popularity over the decade. 

Don Omar vs. Ozuna

instagram @donomar

Earlier this year, Don Omar took advantage of rumors that were swirling about a sex tape featuring Ozuna by launching some indirect homophobic slurs towards the Aura singer, who is a longtime rival. Don Omar’s initial comments on Tuesday inspired a backlash that even included Carmen Yulín Cruz, the mayor of San Juan, as well as Bad Bunny. Yesterday, the rey de reggaeton posted a message on both Instagram and Twitter. “Lunch break? Any of you eat ?? Not me,” a reference to the anti-gay slur “pato.” Don Omar also shared a video of a duck humping a teddy bear in his Instagram stories; fans immediately identified both comments as homophobic references to Ozuna, since the Aura singer’s logo is also a teddy bear.

Hailey Bieber vs. Selena Gomez

instagram @selenagomez

Soon after Gomez’s song “Lose You To Love Me” first dropped, Baldwin posted the song “I’ll Kill You” by Summer Walker to her Instagram Story. Fans speculated that Hailey was throwing shade at Selena, but Baldwin quickly shot down the speculation and called it “BS.” 

Nicki Minaj Vs. Cardi B 

instagram @nickiminaj

While Cardi has been trying her best to move past her ongoing beef with Nicki Minaj, the “MEGATRON” rapper didn’t have a problem adding more fuel to the fire. After sharing went down between herself, Cardi, and the Migos back in 2017, Minaj went on to open up about her “authentic come-up,” saying she relied solely on her talent in order to make it in the industry.

“I still had to go through these things because of people like you who made a sport out of tearing down a young, black woman who’s done nothing but come in this game with an authentic come-up, writing raps, and doing what the f**kin’ was really necessary,” she said. “No Instagram, no reality shows, no sucking DJs’ d*cks.”

Bella Thorne vs. Whoopie Goldberg

instagram @bellathorne

After a hacker threatened to release her nude photos, Bella Thorne took matters into her own hands and released them herself. However, when The View spoke about the situation a few days later, Whoopi Goldberg didn’t seem to think the 21-year-old’s actions were quite as brave and strong as the others, who lauded her and shamed the hacker for trying to extort Bella Thorne.

“Listen, if you’re famous, I don’t care how old you are, you don’t take nude pictures of yourself.” Whoopi Goldberg said, seemingly blaming the actress for getting hacked.

But Bella Thorne was not about to take that sitting down. She took to her Instagram stories and first wrote a long note about how “displeased and saddened” she was by Whoopi Goldberg’s stance, before announcing she would be canceling her scheduled appearance on The View, because she didn’t feel like “being beaten down by a bunch of older women.”

Demi Lovato vs. Taylor Swift

instagram @demilovato

If there is one person who is tired of all the non-drama drama, it’s Demi herself, who took to Instagram on Monday morning to set the record straight once and for all. “Life’s too short for women not to support other women,” she wrote. “Especially when women release great music. Great job Taylor Swift.” She accompanied that peace treaty with a screenshot of her phone, showing her playing Taylor’s song “Cruel Summer” from her new album, “Lover,” calling it “a jam.” Swift later took to Instagram herself re-sharing Lovato’s message to her Instagram story and saying, “This is so awesome & put the biggest smile on my face.”

“Thank you Demi Lovato,” she added.

Khloe Kardashian vs. Jordyn Woods

Perhaps the biggest feud of the year kicked off back in February! That’s when it was revealed that Khloe Kardashian‘s boyfriend, NBA star Tristan Thompson, cheated on her (again), this time with someone very close to the family — sister Kylie Jenner’s best friend, Jordyn Woods. The affair ended not only Khloe’s romantic relationship with the father of her child , but effectively finished off Jordyn’s previously tight-knit relationship with the whole Kardashian-Jenner clan.

Princess Nokia vs. Kali Uchis

instagram @kaliuchis

The internet dug up the receipts pertaining to Nokia’s “Orange Blossom” song, a 2015 track that bears more than a passing resemblance to Kali Uchis’ 2013 “Honey Baby.” Nokia had previously deleted the “Orange Blossom” video entirely, but someone re-uploaded it with an alternative title if you want to catch the clip.

WATCH: Singer Cuco Is Teaching Fans How To Make Authentic Enchiladas Verdes From His Abuelita

Tasty / Facebook

Cuco may have become synonymous with dreamy Spanish indie bedroom pop, but he can also make some mean enchiladas verdes just like his abuelita used to make. In a recent recipe video by Tasty, Cuco explains how he got his name. “Cuco came from my mom saying I was crazy, like “coocoo,” cause I was a goofy kid. My grandparents speak Spanish, so they would say I was el Cuco,” he tells Tasty. The 21-year-old singer wanted to show us how to make proper enchiladas verdes because it’s the food he grew up eating, thanks to his mom, and has become one of his favorite dishes.

Here’s Cuco’s recipe, and all the other Mexicanos telling him that their abuela makes it different.

Start with fresh tomatillos, serrano peppers, and garlic.

I repeat. Cuco does not buy canned or jarred enchilada verde salsa. He makes them like a true abuela.

“If you want your salsa to be spicy, you can up the number of serrano peppers. If you like it more mild, I recommend using maybe like one or just like half a serrano pepper. You can also remove the seeds,” Cuco advises his Tasty viewers. “I personally like spicy, so I put serrano peppers to make it hot.”

Cuco isn’t about seedless salsa verde, y’all. He also reveals that he knows more than just how to make good enchilada verde salsa. He knows the why of it all.

“The reason we boil the tomatoes, onions, garlic, and the serrano peppers, is because we want to maintain the green color. If we were to roast the ingredients, we’d get more of a browner salsa,” he says in the video, casually blowing our uneducated minds.

After boiling everything to your liking, you just blend it all up in a blender, adding water until it becomes the consistency you want in a good enchilada salsa. Then, add the mixture to a pan and saute to bring out the flavors even more. Voila! You’ve made salsa verde. Now, add a thin layer at the bottom of your baking dish.

Don’t be lazy. Fry your tortillas for Cuco-approved enchiladas.

“It’s definitely worth taking extra time to fry tortillas. A crispier tortilla is more likely to hold its shape while baking and the enchiladas will be less mushy,” Cuco sagely offers like an abuelita would. “After you finish frying your tortillas, you’ll dip them in the remaining salsa. This will make them easier to roll and ensure they won’t dry out while baking,” he added, proving tradition runs deep in this indie artist.

Once you dip the fried tortillas in the salsa, you just to add shredded rotisserie chicken (or the vegan meat of your choice) to the center of the tortilla, and roll.

“We’re using rotisserie chicken here but this recipe is also good if you have any kind of leftover chicken you’re trying to get rid of,” Cuco says, reaching full hay-comida-en-la-casa status at the mention of leftovers.

After you’ve rolled the tortillas, you’ll want to take Cuco’s advice and “be sure to arrange them seam-side down” in the baking dish, so that “they’ll continue to hold its shape and filling during baking.” Top the enchiladas with the remaining salsa verde, and heap plenty of cheese on top. “I go crazy with the cheese. It’s just fire,” Cuco confesses to the outlet. Put it in the oven and broil for 3 minutes. Top off the cooked dish with cilantro and crema to help balance the spices of the salsa verde, and you’ve got yourself Cuco-approved enchiladas verdes.

Cuco thinks its “crucial” for people to try real Mexican food.

“I think it’s just really crucial to go try Mexican food if you haven’t tried it before because it expands beyond tacos,” he urged Tasty fans. “Tacos are good but there’s a lot more really good dishes in the culture – enchiladas verdes, chilaquiles, tortas, pozole. There’s good food everywhere. It’s good to know where the good food spots are at in your city.” 

Cuco has proven to be a master of both English-language and Spanish-language indie pop music, often gifting us Latino-American Spanglish speakers the gift of Spanglish love songs. We’re even more in love with you, Cuco, given the way to our collective heart is good abuelita food. “I think food really connects people. Music and food are both like art,” Cuco himself said in the Tasty video. That makes Cuco a Renaissance Abuelo.
