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.

However, it’s rarely that easy.  Gym memberships, workout fads, trendy diets. They’ve all come and gone. The one thing I haven’t tried is a personal trainer but that’s way too expensive, right?

We all know the struggle.

Too intimidated to go the meathead gym? Or don’t speak the language?

Or Maybe you’ve already used your smartphone to work out and scrolled through the endless array of fitness apps out there. But which ones are worth your hard earned coins?

Technology is great but there’s no substitute for empathy and human connection.

Especially when tackling something hard like exercise. And sometimes tough love can be the difference between giving up and pushing through.
