You must wear red and you must have on safety pins – especially if you’re pregnant.

It’s gotten to such an extreme, that Latina moms are reaching out to ask if they’ve gone too far.

#HispanicsBreakTheInternet Shows Every Beautiful Side to Being Latino

Twitter/@KingLoui_5, @jeremiah_806

The hashtag #HispanicsBreakTheInternet made a revival this past weekend, so much so that it was trending big time on Twitter.

This is the tweet that got the ball rolling on #HispanicsBreakTheInternet.

And damn, people really mobbed Twitter with stunning selfies.

The hashtag developed into tweets about the many things that make Latinos unique, amazing, and, of course, beautiful.

Speaking of beautiful:

You know someone’s mom and dad had to make an appearance.

While some used the trending topic to post selfies or to be silly, some took it much deeper.

Twitter user @QueerXiChisme wasn’t a fan of the choice to use “Hispanics” in the hashtag.

And he reminded his followers why:

Liza Sabater, social digital activist, also made sure people were informed about the term “Hispanic.”

Now, whether you’re a fan of the term “Hispanic” or not, the reality is we Latinos, Latinx (however you choose to identify), know how to represent.
