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.

Whitney Houston’s Estate Released Images Of Her Hologram And Basically It’s As Scary As Seeing La Llorona

Last year when the world learned that the estate of the later singer Whitney Houston planned to send her hologram on your, there was a mass of objections and outcries. Now that a sneak peek of the tour has been released, fans have dug in their heels.

“An Evening With Whitney : The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour” will begin on February 25 in the UK.

While Houston’s death occurred eight years ago, her estate has decided to bring her back to life for fans by giving her a new tour experience. According to The New York Post, “‘An Evening With Whitney’ was designed with Whitney’s image in mind, Pat Houston, the singer’s former manager and head of the Whitney Houston estate, said. Whitney planned on giving a more intimate, unplugged-esque tour before she died. And while that never took place when she was alive, the production team behind the hologram has ensured her vision will happen posthumously.”

“We had a discussion about her doing ‘Whitney Unplugged’ or some type of ‘Evening with Whitney,’ and that was really her idea,” Pat Houston said according to the Post. “It’s a dream that was realized by her. So that’s the production. This isn’t something that we’re just putting together. This is something that she wanted to do, and I get very emotional watching this because it is so close to what she wanted. The only thing missing was her, physically.”

Whitney fans have taken to Twitter to voice their horror over the hologram which, in all honesty, is alarming to see at first.

Literally so many fans have been left speechless.

And so many of u shave too many questions.

Dwayne Wayde Talks About Supporting Trans Daughter

Former NBA baller Dwayne Wayde just made a major score in our book.

The father of four and husband to actress Gabrielle Union has gained quite a bit of clout as a Five Star dad thanks to his parenting know-how. In particular, the basketball phenom has in recent years gained attention for his support of his 12-year-old daughter Zaya on social media, particularly when she began to display hints of being part of the LGBTQ community.

Recently, Wayde opened up about his process of understanding his daughter’s gender identity.

Speaking with Robin Roberts on “Good Morning America,” Wayde confirmed that she is trans. “This is her life every day. This is no game to us,” Wayde told Roberts on Tuesday. “We’re all about protecting her heart, we’re about protecting her joy and to do that, we have to support her.”

According to Wayde, Zaya– who has been aware of her gender identity since she was 3– gave her father permission to share her story on the show.

“‘I don’t think I’m gay,'” Wayde recalled his daughter saying in a conversation when she was younger. “‘This is how I identify myself. This is my gender identity. I identify as a young lady. I think I’m a straight trans (girl) because I like boys.'”

According to Wayde, he knew early on that to properly support his daughter he’d have to evaluate himself.

Admitting that he himself had never known or been aware of someone who had come out as a member of the LGBTQ community, Wayde decided to sit down with Union and research as much as they could. They even reached out to members of the LGBTQ community to better understand how to support Zaya. On her own, Union reached out to members of the FX show “Pose” for help. 

“I’ve been a person in a locker room that has been a part of the conversation that has said the wrong phrases and the wrong words myself,” Wayde admitted during his interview. “And as I got older and as I watched my daughter grow, I had to go and look at myself in the mirror and say, ‘Who are you? What are you going to do if your child comes home and says, “Dad, I’m not a boy … I’m a trans girl.” What are you going to do?’ That was my moment of real.”

Speaking about Zaya, Wayde said that he feels it is his responsibility to help support others in the LGBTQ community.

“We know there’s other families out there dealing with their kid finding themselves and learning who they are,” Wayde explained. “I’m not going to sit here and act like we have all the answers. I’m not going to sit here and act like before our child came home and sat us down, that we weren’t ignorant parents when it comes to the world. When I say we’re learning from our 12-year-old, we’re literally learning from our child.”
