When your mom says you’re not allowed to eat more pan dulce.

Featuring: @adi_lene02

Don’t get between a Latina and her pan dulce. And speaking of pan dulce, have you tried pan dulce and ice cream together? If you haven’t, be sure to hit up Horchatería in L.A. It’s actually mind blowing.

Si saben como me pongo, ¿pa qué me invitan?

Featuring: @sallypea

This little dude has moves that can only be truly appreciated at quinceaneras and bautizos. He doesn’t follow the dance that every other kid is doing. He follows the beat of his own drum.

A la Junaga.

Featuring: @geraldalocks

We knew this was going to give La Caída de Edgar a run for his money. But we have to admit that right before the fall, this was probably some of the best moves we’ve seen since JuanGa days — actually including the fall.

No, we’re not getting a pet.

Featuring: @ccdelcid

A tale as old as time: Latinos parents will say that they don’t want any pets in the house but the moment you adopt one, they immediately fall in love with it and the pet instantly becomes the favorite child. Spoiler alert: Latino dads are actually soft AF on the inside.

Umm… my elote looks a little bit like something else.

Featuring: @charmingman1121

When you’ve been celibate for a long time and everything around you starts looking like something else. In case you’re in the mood, here are some Latino songs about food that are actually about sexy time.

We all have that one tía.

Featuring: @jasmincausorfilms

I don’t care how much the dress cost. I don’t care if we have guests around. If there’s cake around you best believe someone’s getting their face smashed into it. Also, shoutout to this person because you look like the life of every party and deserve an invitation to every party.

Let’s get avo-control.

Featuring: @periwinklesash

Move over, David Getta. Move over, Test. Move over, Calvin Harris. There’s a new DJ that should be headlining in Vegas and it’s the one and only Guacardo. If you want to get your own Guacardo DJ, click here and use the code SPRING15 for 15% off your entire purchase at checkout.

When she tells you she likes musicians.

Featuring: @jicaaa

Not everybody was born musically talented, but just how the saying goes: fake it till you make it. Even if it means taking a pozole cucharón and using it as your instrument.

Tell me what that mouth do.

Featuring: @lucy24garcia

What they don’t tell you is that taking Jell-O shots is actually harder than taking regular shots. Speaking of shots, if you want a shot glass set that speaks to who you are, be sure to get this season’s Barrio Box which includes these shot glasses and many other goodies.

People for the ethical treatment of pasteles.

Featuring: @priscigl

I think it’s a fact that cake has never actually been eaten at Latino parties. RIP all of the fallen cakes. Y’all were beautiful and I’m sure delicious and I’m so sorry my people have been treating you this way.

Who taught Slender Man how to dance corridos?

Featuring: @roberto_valadez_97

This video is both creepy and funny and all I can picture is what other people at the store were thinking. Keep it up, Slender Man, dance to whatever music your heart desires.

I can already see the chancla flying.

Featuring: @yamilleteflores

Ouch! And I’m not talking about the wall. You know someone got a chanclazo after this video was taken. We cannot confirm nor deny that the kid is okay.

Why did you do this, Sofia??

Featuring: @kristalcastles

Honestly, Sofia was just looking out for y’all. She’s the true protector of the house. The smile at the end has me dying. If you want to reward your pooch with a poncho, click here.

Maluma Invited Fans To A Meet And Greet But Now It’s Being Called A Covid-19 Super Spreader Event

Maluma is one of the world’s biggest pop stars, so it should be no surprise that when he invites fans to a meet-and-greet, thousands of people would show up.

And that’s exactly what happened at his latest meet-and-greet in Miami, which is now being called a potential Covid-19 super spreader event after police were forced to shut down the event since so few people were following health measures.

Maluma incited a mob of his fans at a Miami meet-and-greet.

If Maluma was in my neighborhood, I probably would have been the first in line to go to his meet-and-greet. But now, thanks to Covid, his massive fandom might just prove to be deadly, after fans gathered for a Miami event to promote his latest EP.

Papi Juancho took to Instagram to alert his fans that he’d be making an appearance at a gallery pop-up, making sure to include in parentheses: ‘Wear masks.’ As soon as he arrived, fans swarmed his car as he stood up through the sunroof to greet fans which were lined up for blocks.

He greeted around 160 fans outside the gallery, before they were let inside the gallery 10 at a time, where social distancing was enforced. But with more than 1,000 people still in line, the Miami Police Department had to step in to shut down the event, as it violated Covid-19 emergency orders.

“We don’t know why they canceled it, we’ve been here for three hours” a young fan told Telemundo Miami, adding that the line was “really long.”

Maluma was in Miami promoting his latest EP, 7DJ.

Maluma, who’s promoting the recently released visual album “7 Días en Jamaica,” partnered with fellow Colombian artist Federico Uribe, who made art for the album using pieces of plastic. The artwork, which will be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going to environmental non-profits, was on display at the gallery

Maluma announced his EP last week on Instagram, sparking pregnancy rumors as he cuddled up to a woman’s stomach, which was scribed in marker with ‘#7DJ.’ 

‘It’s my sixth child… For the people who thought I was going to be a dad. This is my new baby, 7 Días En Jamaica. This is a project that I’ve been working on for a long time.’

Latino Twitter Gifted The World With These Seriously Good Inauguration Memes

Latino Twitter Gifted The World With These Seriously Good Inauguration Memes

It’s official: the United States has a new president! Yesterday was Inauguration Day in the U.S. and we welcomed Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States and Kamala Harris as the 49th Vice President.

It was an historic day full of major milestones for the country and the world – and that was made obvious by the sheer amount of attention paid to the day’s events. One has to look no further than the amount of memes that were produced in the wake of the inauguration, from Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga to Bernie Sanders and the adiós to Donald and Melania Trump.

As usual, Latino Twitter showed up with the memes and left many of us on the floor laughing our a** off. These are some of the honorable mentions from a day full of historical moments and incredible memes.

Tío Bernie may have stolen the spotlight from President Biden with his very practical inauguration attire.

The long-serving Vermont senator was there to watch proceedings, bracing the D.C. cold to witness Biden being sworn in as president. To withstand the cold climes, Sanders came prepared in a big old reliable coat and mittens – with his inaugural look and general demeanour waiting for the event to begin capturing the creativity of the internet through a series of ‘Cold Bernie’ memes.

Bernie was everywhere!

The former presidential candidate was popping up in all sorts of places as the Internet memed him into a frenzy.

And he was all of us…

The former aspiring presidential candidate later addressed the attention his outfit was getting in an interview with Gayle King, noting: ‘You know in Vermont we know something about the cold and are not so concerned about good fashion, we want to keep warm and that’s what I did today.’

The Internet has even created a website where you can insert Tío Bernie into any scene you want with Google Maps.

And yes, it actually works!

Michelle Obama told us all how she felt without telling us all how she felt.

When Michelle and Barack Obama departed the White House in 2017 to make way for Donald and Melania Trump to take over the reigns, Michelle did not hide how difficult and upsetting she found the moment. So a lot of people were thrilled to see the Michelle we know and love, happy, thrilled and generally paving the way at the 2021 inauguration ceremony.

Lady Gaga giving the world Hunger Games vibes…

Lady Gaga had the honour of performing the American national anthem, ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ and, of course, she ‘killed’ it. The dramatic and rousing performance was made even better by her custom-made Schiaparelli gown, adorned in the US colours and complete with patriotic hidden meanings. However some thought they’d seen it – particularly the brooch – before…

Then there were the adiós Trump memes that left Mexican Twitter on fire!

A la verga! Adiós, Señor Trump! 👋

This one is too good!

I. Can’t. Stop. Laughing.

Mexican Facebook was also on fire!

This Twitter user is too right, Mexican Facebook really is undefeated!

And some want to reclaim red hats!

If you could bring back red hats, what would yours say?
