J.Lo Pissed Off Twitter With One Ill-Timed Hashtag

J.Lo really put her foot in her mouth in it this week with one poorly planned tweet. When promoting her new song “Love Make The World Go Round” for the Orlando victims, the Boricua singer included #AllLivesMatter in her tweet. But instead of having the effect she was hoping for, the Twittersphere came out to drag the hell out of her.

Here’s the tweet that made everyone say, “Wait, what?”

The tweet was immediately deleted, but the Internet lasts forever and people made sure to remind her of that.

She even used #AllLivesMatter on Instagram.

And, immediately, Twitter came together to drag her to hell and back.

And no part of her past was left untouched.

Like, her entire 1990s phase was called into question over the hashtag.

And J.Lo’s love of hip-hop and R&B was questioned.

This person even revoked her Bronx membership card.

People did come to her defense.

Even offering J.Lo a way out, a la Mariah Carey.

Seems totally possible, right?

People were pleading with Lin-Manuel Miranda to educate J.Lo on the origin of the hashtag.

Here’s what people thought Miranda was feeling like post tweet controversy.

And again, people came to J.Lo’s rescue trying to quell the anger.

But others wanted to point out just how harsh the U.S. has been on Puerto Rico, her motherland.

But over all, people were just plain disappointed…

Like, suuuuuper disappointed.

Puerto Rican band Los Rivera Destino are back with their new single “Castigo” featuring Pedro Capó. The song is the first single from their long awaited album which is due to be released this summer.

Castigo” is the best of both worlds: fusing Bolero and Dembow, creating a fresh take on songs we would listen to at the club.

We had the chance to interview Los Rivera Destino for Latido Music by mitú, and they talked about filming the music video, songs that they would like to see with Bolero covers, working with Bad Bunny again, and more.

Check out our interview below:

While the United States is as of publication, has vaccinated over 75 million people against COVID-19 since mid-December, the rest of the world is still catching up. Poorer countries, for example, are struggling to procure enough vaccines for essential workers–let alone their entire population.

Luckily, certain charitable business are making it their mission to get vaccines to the most needy. For example, anti-poverty organization Global Citizen has organized a charity concert with the aim of getting COVID-19 vaccines to developing countries.

Selena Gomez will be hosting the concert, called “VAX Live: The Concert to Reunite the World”. And none other than Jennifer Lopez will be headlining.

Selena Gomez took to Twitter to announce her involvement in the exciting project. “I’m honored to be hosting ‘VAX LIVE: The Concert to Reunite the World,’ ” she wrote.

“This is a historic moment to encourage people around the world to take the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available to them, call on world leaders to share vaccine doses equitably and to bring people together for a night of music in a way that hasn’t felt possible in the past year. I can’t wait to be a part of it.”

Jennifer Lopez also took to Twitter to announce her involvement with VAX Live, saying that she is “calling for equitable COVID-19 vaccine distribution for all”. That’s a statement we can get behind!

Jennifer Lopez isn’t the only superstar performing. Other acts will include J Balvin, H.E.R., and the Foo Fighters.

Global Citizen has one goal: to raise $22 billion for global vaccinations via corporate and philanthropic donors. They’re hoping VAX Live will bring awareness to their efforts.

“There are 27 million healthcare workers globally who don’t have access to the vaccine,” said Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans to the Associated Press. “I’m 38 years old, and it’s not ethical for me to have access to the vaccine before these heroic first responders and community health workers. So we need governments to start urgently donating those doses.”

Tom Hart, the executive director for another anti-poverty organization, The ONE Campaign, also reiterated the importance of getting vaccine doses into the hands of developing countries.

“Low-income countries not only need this welcome fundraising effort; they need access to COVID-19 vaccine doses,” Tom Hart said.

“The United States has secured over 550 million excess doses that could be used to help end the global pandemic faster.”

You can catch VAX LIVE on ABC, CBS, and iHeartMedia stations on 8:00 p.m. ET on May 8th. It will also be airing on Fox starting at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT the same day. You’ll also be able to catch an extended version on Global Citizen’s YouTube channel on May 8th as well.
