What’s worse than having your Latino name hyphenated? Having your image besmirched by another hyphenated celebrity Latino.
Bronx queen, who can do no wrong, Jennifer Lopez, recently posted a photo on Instagram with NYC rascal, and highest-paid-baseball-player-ever-fired from the Yankees, Alex Rodriguez.
J.Lo posted, then deleted this photo of her and A-Rod from Instagram. Probably for the best, tbh.
As a New Yorker myself, I can attest that most people are thrilled.
I feel like Arod and Jlo were always meant to happen

I wouldn’t have said it that way, but sure.
Like willing to do anything to get in on their date night chisme.
I would pay PayPerView money to listen to dinner conversation between ARod and JLo.

But who wouldn’t though?
Because J.Lo is finally getting what she deserves: A real Dominicano.

Drake, you’re still an honorary Domincan though.
People as rich and beautiful as they should also find eternal happiness.
JLo and ARod are together which is good because I sometimes worry that gorgeous rich people won't find someone to be with

After all, they’re just like us.
But let’s be real here, not everyone is thrilled about this.
JLo is dating ARod and this makes me irrationally angry.

A few people are angry just to be angry.
But others are hopeful that this is what will bring unity amongst folks in the love-hate relationship between Puerto Ricans and Dominicans.

Let’s stop frontin’ like we both don’t love platanos.
Perhaps, after Tuesday night’s PR vs. DR twitter brawl, J-Lord (as I’m calling them now) can help bring us back together?

We are more alike than we think sometimes.
I hope our new savior J-Lord can unite the people and bring us out of this twitter war with kindness.
Or… maybe not?
Whatever your feelings are, one thing is for sure NYC will always tell you about yourself.

Probably should’ve worn the right hat.
