Twitter Has Canceled Vicente Fernandez After He Rejected A Liver Transplant For Fear Of Getting A Gay Liver

So Mexican nortena singer Vicente Fernandez is a musical legend. He’s so big in fact that he’s simply referred to as El Rey by millions of Mexicans who have adored him for generations.

Despite several health scares and a supposed farewell tour that started in 2012, the singer is a staple at fiestas, bars, and even quinceañeras. Our abuelos probably still have his records.

He also continues to make headlines. But this time not for his musical talent.

In an interview with “De Primera Mano”, El Rey discussed his recent cancer scare. Doctors suggested the 79-year-old singer undergo a liver transplant to hopefully remove the cancer.

Instead, Vicente (a.k.a. Chente) decided to ignore medical experts. Why?

He didn’t want the liver of a homosexual.

In the interview, Fernandez says that after doctors told him they already had the liver of a matching donor he told them: “I’m not going to sleep with my wife with the liver of another guy. I don’t know if he was a homosexual or a drug addict.”

The singer then said he left the hospital, even though everything was ready for the transplant.

People on Twitter have immediately called him out for this blatant homophobia.

It is literally one of the dumbest ideas, tbh. If someone is willing to give you an organ to keep you alive, you should take it. There are so many people who would appreciate the gift of life that a transplant can give.

Others have called him out for his complete ignorance.

He didn’t just say no because he thought they were gay. Fernandez also said he was concerned that the person might be a drug addict. So, basically, Fernandez thinks being a drug addict is the same as being a gay person so…

Some depicted the potential side effects that Vicente Fernandez was worried about.

He wishes he would look that good after his liver transplant. His career would hit a whole other level and the fans would come flocking.

Like really though? You rather risk your own death?

He was willing to die to avoid the chance of getting a transplant from a gay person. Isn’t that what we call Darwinism? Like, only the fittest survive.

Many have been so shocked by his comments they’re comparing him to the villain from Disney’s “Coco.”

How dare they compare the two? Obviously, Ernesto de la Cruz is a much better person because he never distanced himself from the LGBTQ+ community.

Some were shocked to discover that the gay is located in the liver.

He is out here exposing all of the secrets. The gay gene is clearly found in the liver and that’s why Fernandez is too afraid to accept just any old random liver.

And although we’re glad he’s beat the cancer, one Twitter user succinctly summed up what we’re all now thinking:

Your career was cute but your homophobia is just trash. Thank you for the music but it is time for you to retire your too-tight charro outfit and live your life on the ranch.

Run Away From That Toxic Relationship with Dalex’s New Single “Feeling”

Puerto Rican singer Dalex is back to his Latin R&B roots with “Feeling“, which is about leaving behind that relationship that made you question everything, including changing who you are to please the other person.

Produced by Dimelo Flow, “Feeling” not only does it get deep about leaving behind what no longer serves you, but it is also packed with punchlines like “Te olvide como El Chavo, sin querer queriendo“.

In our interview for Latido Music by mitú, Dalex talked to us about the feeling he wanted to convey with the song, singing about heartbreak instead of his usual songs that tend to be more intimate.

Watch out interview below:

In “Feeling,” Dalex wants to explore other sounds and try doing a more commercial record that more people can relate to.

The colorful music video was shot in Miami, directed by Adrián Arredondo for Wildhouse Pictures. Dalex and his love interest are seen riding around dirt bikes, which we later found out in the interview was one of his Top 5 Feelings.

Watch the music video below:

Dalex has a busy 2021 ahead, and “Feeling” is the first single from his upcoming album due this year. The Rich Music singer told us that he has a collab with Reggaetón heavy hitters Wisin & Yandel and Zion & Lennox on the way, as well as an American singer which for now he can’t reveal, but we can’t wait to find out.

Selena Gomez Tells Senate to Pass Equality Act, Credits Gay Community with Launching Her Music Career

After the Equality Act was recently passed in the House, Selena Gomez is now telling the Senate to pass the bill that would give added federal protections to the LGBTQ+ community. The Mexican-American pop star also talked about her history with the gay community and how they helped support her music career.

The Equality Act would extend protections from the Civil Rights Act to the LGBTQ+ community.

The Equality Act was first introduced in 2015. The bill would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to extend protections against discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity when it came to employment, housing, education, and other public and federal accommodations. In 2019, the Senate under President Donald Trump refused to vote on the bill.

The Equality Act recently passed through the House and now Gomez wants the Senate to pass it as well.

In February, the Equality Act was reintroduced to the House of Representatives. The bill passed through the House for a second time on Feb. 25. In a recent interview with the Recording Academy, the institution that hosts the Grammy Awards, Gomez is telling the Senate to vote on the bill this time and pass it through.

“We’ve come a long way in the last 10 years, but we have so much further to go,” Gomez said about the progress of LGBTQ+ rights in the country. “The Senate must pass the Equality Act. It’s absurd that this is even being debated in 2021.”

Gomez says the gay community helped support her 2009 breakthrough hit “Naturally.”

While Gomez was promoting her Latin music EP Revelación, she also revisited a few of her past hits. In 2009, she launched her music career with her band The Scene. Later that year, Gomez got her first top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with her breakthrough smash “Naturally.” While talking about her relationship with the gay community, she says they were the first ones to show that song love.

“Earlier you mentioned my song ‘Naturally’ and I remember when it was released, it truly started getting played in the gay bars before anywhere else,” she said. “I would hear from older friends that they heard when they went out. I was so jealous that I was too young to be out and dancing to it with everyone. The LGBTQ+ community has been there for me and I don’t take them for granted.”

The Equality Act is waiting to be debated by the Senate. This is Gomez’s first time speaking in support of the bill. Last year, she launched the Black Equality Fund to support groups like the Movement for Black Lives.  In March, she also asked for the Senate to pass the People Act.
