@TheMultiMom / @goth_s[piderman / Twitter

Twitter might be full of clapbacks and strong political opinions but the real gold is in Twitter comedy. Kind of like #MakeAFilmMexican. The only purpose of this hashtag is to take movie titles and add a Mexican element. Per usual, Twitter users delivered.

Twitter gave us gold once again thanks to #MakeAFilmMexican.


Mainly because “American Beauty” is too basic.

Even Christian Grey got a Mexican upgrade.


Yeah, that’s right, upgrade.

A few people went a little obscure with their references.


Has anybody else watched “Encino Man.”

Tacos > Love, actually.


Though “Love Actually” is a great movie for the holidays.

Some movie titles just need a bit of Spanish to give it a twist.


*queues up “The Breakfast Club” and disappears from the world*

A few people took a chance in updating some classics.


If you haven’t read or watched “To Kill A Mockingbird“, do it now.

This Mexican upgrade definitely has a political undertone…


…and this one is all for that one person who went on a cruise to Mexico once.


The Princess and the Frog” is a pretty great movie, imho.

G.I. Joe has nothing on G.I. José.


A few of these tweets should legit become movies.


Boyz n the Hood” is cute but just imagine “Vatos de Barrio.”

There were so many Star Wars jokes.


Some were just reimagined posters…


…and some are so great, they deserve a movie deal.


“Fear the chancla, you will.” – Mexican Yoda

We all have a Jorge in our life that constantly gets lost.


But the greatest reboot would have to be Captain Mexico.


ICONIC!

An Argument Escalated When One Woman Tried To Use The Other’s Immigration Status As A Threat

An Argument Escalated When One Woman Tried To Use The Other’s Immigration Status As A Threat

@fabulousdania / Twitter

An undocumented mother posted a video on Twitter of an argument she was in with her ex’s new girlfriend. The video starts with a woman yelling at the camera saying, “If anything, you should be afraid to call the cops because I’m not the immigrant here.” With that, the argument just kind of took off and Twitter is split in their opinions.

Dania Jaramillo posted a 46-second long video of an argument with her ex’s new girlfriend and it starts on a very uncomfortable note.

The woman is heard implying to Jaramillo that she shouldn’t call the cops because of her immigration status. This threat is one often used by people to keep undocumented people afraid of reporting crimes and harassment. In fact, there are studies that show undocumented communities not reporting crimes for fear of being arrested and harassed by police.

The woman then continues to argue with Jaramillo, who says she shouldn’t be surprised that people know of her since she is coming into their community.

“Umm, b*tch, I’ve been in your community,” she tells Jaramillo. “This ain’t yours. Is this yours? No. This is free land, isn’t it? Because, I was born here so I know that all this land is mine.”

Jaramillo gave all of the people on Twitter the background info on the dispute.

The man in the glasses is her ex. According to several tweets, he has had violence issues in the past so Jaramillo’s husband, the man without glasses was outside in case he needed to step in.

Some people went straight for the woman in the video.

Honestly, we all know someone with an accent. Her’s is one that we all remember from our lives. Whether it is a family member or friend, we all know someone who speaks like she does.

People also had an issue with her claiming that all of the land was hers because she was born here.

Like, private property laws are a thing. That being said, the land isn’t inherently yours just because you were “born here.” You might be able to own some land but you don’t just get to say that all the land is your land because you are born in the U.S.

The ex is heard telling Jaramillo that they would be seeing each other in court so some offered her legal advice.

According to tweets by Jaramillo, they are still battling out custody. It is always best to make sure your legal advice is coming from someone in the legal field. However, videos make good evidence if you find yourself trying to make a case of harassment.

The woman in the video did make her Instagram private but that hasn’t stopped people from sharing what she is posting.

While her Instagram is private, the woman wants to get the last word. According to the post, Jaramillo was gossiping about the woman and that is what incited the argument.

The woman did have some defenders.

They are arguing that she wasn’t being xenophobic. Xenophobia is defined as “dislike of or prejudice against people from other countries,” according to Merriam-Webster.

For her defenders, she is just hitting below the belt.

What do you think about the argument between the two women? Do you think this was xenophobic?

Selena Gomez Is Fighting To Make Sure That Everyone Can Speak Openly And Honestly About Getting Help For Their Mental Health

selenagomez / Instagram

Selena Marie Gomez (born in Texas in 1992) has been in the public eye for as long as she can remember. She has been a role model for young girls as a singer and an actress and now is involved in more risqué films such as Spring Breakers, a delirious film by indie filmmaker Harmony Korine. Besides having a strong onscreen persona, Gomez has been in relationships with the likes of Justin Bieber, which of course turned the paparazzi attention and cameras to her. Suddenly, when she was barely a teenager her every move was being followed. Her life was sort of predestined to be great when she was named after the great late Selena Quintanilla. However, she has had to deal with divorce (her parents separated when she was five-years-old) and with weak health, as she was diagnosed with lupus, an auto-immune disease, which ultimately forced her to get a kidney transplant. She found strength in her mom. Gomez has said that her mother “was really strong around me. Having me at 16 had to have been a big responsibility. She gave up everything for me, had three jobs, supported me, sacrificed her life for me.” That must provide so much strength for a woman of barely 26 but who has gone through more in her lifetime than many 50-year-olds.

This must not be easy for anyone, even more so for a Latino woman. Gomez knows that she has a microphone and that she can get to other girls and women. “The older I get, the prouder I am to be a woman in the industry. When I was younger and running around all the time on tour, I don’t think I took the time to notice how being a woman in my position is really a gift. I want to make sure I utilize all that power,” the young Latina star told Into the GlossShe has used this position of privilege to raise awareness on mental health issues, including suicide prevention, both as a celebrity and as a producer. She is also a supporter of associations such as Make A Wish (which grants children diagnosed with life-threatening conditions), the Alliance for Children’s Rights and the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. 

Selena Gomez fights for friendships above anything else: girl power.

Gomez values friendship and spreads the word. She has such loyal friends that one even donated a kidney when Gomez needed a transplant. She says: “People are put into your life for seasons, for different reasons, and to teach you lessons”: Selena, we couldn’t agree more.

She gets politically enraged when it matters.

Gomez knows that a lot of mental health issues concerning young women are related to the policing of their sexuality and reproductive rights. She gets political when she feels the need to, particularly with issues concerning the mental health and general wellbeing of young women like herself. 

She asks her fans to be strong, but to also look for help when needed.

Her advice: “I’ve learned there’s power deep down inside yourself, and you can find it when you don’t give up on yourself and when you ask for help.” This is so real it hurts: even someone like her, who in the eyes of her fans might seem to have it all, needs to be humble and honest in reaching out to others when the world seems bleak. There is always someone who cares if you are OK. 

She stands up for migrants.

Gomez doesn’t get political often, but when she does she always stands up for the minority communities. She has been a vocal advocate for migrant rights and the rights of women. She even wore a 1973 necklace as one of very few Latina celebs speaking up for abortion rights.

She even takes a stand from DACA recipients and Dreamers.

She has used her social media accounts, which have followers in the millions, to call her fans to action. She is clearly showing the world that she does care and she is paying attention. 

She delivers a message of self-acceptance, which led her to produce 13 Reasons Why.

Gomez’s mother, Amanda, had her when she was just 16, and then raised her by herself. She was also the one that gave Gomez the book on which the Netflix show 13 Reasons Why is based. The show was controversial because it spoke about mental health issues and suicide, topics that are fundamental to discuss with young vulnerable populations but that remain a taboo. However, Gomez’s message is optimistic. She has said: “I promise you that each and every one of you is made to be who you are and that’s what’s so attractive and beautiful.” Preach! 

13 Reasons Why put mental health issues at the forefront of public media debate.

“I get it all day, every day, that I’m not sexy enough, or I’m not cool enough, or if I did this I would be accepted… I promise you that each and every one of you is made to be who you are and that’s what’s so attractive and beautiful. Please don’t forget that, even when it gets hard,” she said in an interview for the Huffington PostAnd this is exactly the message that she conveys in her project. Taking on Jay Asher’s literary world, she and the series creative team were able to show mental health and suicide from all possible angles. 

She takes fame with a grain of salt.

She has been famous for a big portion of her life, but she knows that todo es pasajero, and that at the end who you are does not depend merely on adulation: “You are not defined by an Instagram photo, by a ‘Like,’ by a comment. That does not define you.”

Body positivity is her mantra.

“I feel very empowered and confident and comfortable with where I am. And I think it took me a long time to get there because, you know, the past year was so interesting because I’ve never been body-shamed before… I did gain weight, but I don’t care,” she said at On Air with Ryan SeacrestThis is a great, positive message for someone who is followed by millions of young women throughout the world, particularly in a day and age when standards of beauty are twisted and self-love is hard to achieve. 

She is an active advocate of girl power.

Perhaps following the example of her mother, who basically raised her alone while holding down as many jobs as necessary to make ends meet, Gomez says: “I don’t want to become little or hurt or a victim. I want to be strong for girls…I just want them to know that there is an option of standing up for yourself.” Additionally, she was named a United Nations Ambassador in 2009, and in this role, she has worked particularly in empowering vulnerable children by helping provide clean water, education, and medical services. 

You learn from your mistakes.

Perhaps most importantly, she knows that many see her as a role model and that this brings a huge deal of responsibility. “I’m human, I’m not perfect. I make mistakes all the time, but I guess my job is to keep those mistakes to myself, which I’m already fine doing and just try to be the best I can be for those kids,” she told E! Online.
