A Reporter Said This Cuban-Mexican-American Pop Star Should Drop Her Last Name Because She Can’t Pronounce It

E! News / Snapchat / @Ale__Ale__Ale / Twitter

Erin Lim, the host of E! News’ Snapchat segment called “The Rundown” is in some hot water following her commentary on Camila Cabello and her name. The E! News reporter couldn’t just talk about Camila Cabello’s career without throwing shade at the Cuban-Mexican-American about her last name. But the Twitter warriors took to the airwaves and let her know what they think of her off-color humor.

This is the video that has subjected Erin Lim a severe Twitter dragging.


“Drop the last name,” Lim says about Camila Cabello’s last name. “It’s difficult to pronounce and unnecessary.”

Some people took the opportunity to give Lim a free Spanish lesson on how to pronounce the “difficult” and “unnecessary” name.


It’s not like you’re having to pronounce Rodriguez-Jimenez, which can be a tongue twister. It’s Ca-Bae-Yo.

And some people just wanted her to know that her comments were, well, insensitive.


There was a sense of pride as people pointed out that a last name carries heritage and identity.


It’s not like these names were pulled out of a hat to make life harder for entertainment reporters. These names come from somewhere.

And this Twitter user let Lim know that she created an unnecessary situation by not just learning how to say a name.


Anybody got some ointment for these burns?

What do you think?

This Selena Tribute Is The One Thing That Slipped By Us At Super Bowl 51

With all the hype around Lady Gaga’s performance during the Super Bowl 51, you may have missed one very special performance. Solange Knowles performed at the Pre-Super Bowl concert in Houston, Texas and warmed up the crowd ahead of the big game. During her performance, the Texas native pulled out a classic Selena hit and set the crowd on fire.

Here is Solange Knowles giving the crowd an “I Could Fall In Love” cover they didn’t expect.


This isn’t the first time Solange has given concertgoers a taste of the Tejano queen while on tour.

People loved her cover, even going so far as to say that Selena would love it too.


Though there was concern that the video would be Solange performing with Selena Gomez.


Which would have been just fine because Selena Gomez is a successful musician and all.

And this Texan couldn’t be prouder.
