You were drowning in teenage-heartbreak-tears and she wanted to bond with you so she decided to buy a spell and curse your bae. She probably should have sent you to a therapist.

Naya Rivera’s Ex-Husband Responds to “Illogical” Rumors About His Relationship With the Late Actress’s Sister; ‘I can’t believe this is real life’

In a video posted to Instagram on Tuesday, Naya Rivera’s ex-husband Ryan Dorsey offered insight into his life after Rivera’s tragic death in July. He also explained how difficult it has been for him to raise a grieving child in the midst of his own battle with grief.

In the emotional video, Dorsey also responded to the haters who have criticized his decision to move in with Naya Rivera’s sister, Nickayla Rivera, in order to help care for his son, Josy. He condemned the “ill-advised, illogical, misinformed” rumors that painted his relationship with Nickayla as anything but platonic.

🗣Its not always black and white.

A post shared by dorseyryan (@dorseyryan) on

The video came in the wake of several salacious headlines and quotes from “sources” who dubiously claimed that Dorsey and Nickayla Rivera were “fooling around”, “chatting” and “obviously helping lift each other’s spirits.”

In his Instagram video, Dorsey offered further insight into his decision to move in with Nickayla Rivera.

“[Josey] asked me if Titi can live with us…because she’s now the closest thing that he has to a mom,” he said. “Because you’re going to need all the help you get as a single parent, trying to build your career, and navigate this disaster with your child. You deal with it every hour of every day for 80-plus days now.”

 “After all he’s had to go through, how could you deny him that? And because of what? What some strangers might think or say?” he asked.

Dorsey explained how he has had to help his son cope with the death of his mother.

“You tell him [Naya is] an angel now and she’s with God and she’s in heaven, and he says ‘I wanna go there. How do I get there?’ I wouldn’t wish that upon any of your ears to have to hear that. To hear those words come out of the sweetest soul you know.”

Dorsey also explained how his grief has been magnified by photographers hounding him, trying to spin photos of him with Nickayla into a “false narrative”.

Initially, the negative press subsequently prompted a group of trolls and critics to leave a slew of hateful comments and messages on his social media. In Dorsey’s video, he revealed that he’s receiving “terrible messages” from strangers who are “wishing death” upon him for what they perceive to be inappropriate behavior.

But Dorsey explained to his followers that a romance is the last thing on his mind. “Talking about ‘relationships’?” he asked incredulously. “S—t man, I wish I was worried about a relationship right now, not thinking about this and living with this everyday.”

Nickayla herself has also taken to her Instagram stories to defend herself from the trolls who are peddling a false narrative about her relationship with Dorsey.

“In the darkest time of my life, the only thing that is important is my friends & family,” she wrote. “I’m not concerned with the way things look because no one can see each agonizing moment we all endure.”

An Abuelo Got A Hurtful Note From Bad Neighbors About His Decorations And Latino Twitter Came Into Comfort Him

An Abuelo Got A Hurtful Note From Bad Neighbors About His Decorations And Latino Twitter Came Into Comfort Him

@goldenstef / Twitter

We are rarely more defensive than we are for our abuelos. The viejitos have always been there for us and seeing them treated unkindly is just heartbreaking. That is what one Twitter user experienced after her abuelo got a wretched note about his decorations outside his home.

This is the horrid letter left for @goldenstef’s abuelo by undesirable neighbors.

The letter, which is filled with misspelled words, calls the abuelo’s house an example of a “low class Mexican family.” The letter was written anonymously by neighbors and delivered to the abuelo in an attempt to shame him into changing his decorations. One of the most bizarre moments in the letter is when the angry author criticized the homeowner for having too many American flags claiming he isn’t patriotic and can’t fool the neighbors. Like, which one is it people?

The Twitter user followed up with photos of the house to show the decorations their abuelo has out front.

People flooded the Twitter post with comments supporting and sending love to the abuelo. Fellow Latinos are ready to stand with the abuelo and some just want the names of the people behind the letter so they can talk to them. Some people are stunned at how far the author was willing to go out of their way to be mean to an old man who just wants to decorate his home and front yard.

Latino Twitter wants to come together to let the abuelo know that his decorations are adorbs.

We need to come together to give her abuelo all of the wonderful decoration we love. Let’s turn his house and front yard into a showcase of all of the greatness that Latin America has to offer.

People are falling in love with this viejitos yard.

Honestly, this is a great yard. Who wouldn’t want a yard like this? This yard is original and adorable and worth all of the praise that we can muster. Thank you to people like this for making their yards something unique and worth seeing.

@goldenstef wants everyone to know just how much they appreciate the sweet messages about their abuelo’s yard.

It costs nothing to be kind. It is even better when you can be kind about something someone clearly cares so much about. Who cares if someone decorates their lawn a little too much. At least they are having fun with their lives and that is something we all need more of right now.
