#ThanksgivingWithHispanics is the Realest Thanksgiving Depiction Ever

Thanksgiving at our Latino households isn’t the usual cookie-cutter family set-up we see in the movies. Oh no. #ThanksgivingWithHispanics nails how our dinner goes down…

There’s always so much damn prep work before everyone arrives.


No one better dare go into my room, but every inch of the house needs to get scrubbed to give los tíos y las tías the impression that we’re suuuuper tidy.

You finally wear that outfit you planned two weeks ago just for the compliments.

It’s your day, girl.

It’s only a matter of time before all hell starts breaking loose and you just can’t.


I swear it wasn’t me! ?

Then suddenly, someone makes a comment about your weight and you’re just like…

I just have to fake happy for a few more hours, then I can ignore these people for another month.

You pray the food will be ready soon so they can stop with the uncomfortable questions.

Because we Latinos are late for eeeeeeverything. Surprisingly, even when it comes to eating.

Before you know it, your always-single-tía drops the “y tu novio” bomb.

WHO invited her??

Eventually, you get fed up and you put them in their place.

Bye.

Then mom gets involved and the headache begins.

Finally, the moment you’ve been waiting for. The food is ready and you’re about to destroy it until…

You realized who cooked.

Eating can be a little confusing since you don’t know when you’re supposed to stop.

You get told you gained a little weight, but then you’re still getting served.

And mami offers you more food than you can handle and expects you to finish it.

Soon mami and abuelita are arguing over your eating for no reason.

All the tías start judging eeeeveryone.

Chismosas.

Luckily there are more cocktails than turkey.

Because it’s not a Latino party if drinks aren’t involved.

And it’s cute until someone has too much to drink and starts spilling the real chisme. ?

Whaaaat?? But wait, tell me more.

You can only take so much. You go to bed, not to sleep, but just to get away because no one is leaving anytime soon.

Just when you think it’s all over, you wake up the next day and there are tamales for breakfast.


God. Is. Real.

Turns Out ‘Machete’ Director Robert Rodriguez Is Behind ‘Rain On Me’

As a director, Robert Rodriguez never fails to deliver.

From the hits of the”Spy Kids” franchise to “Machete”, the seasoned Mexican-American filmmaker has built a career on high-action movies that always deliver colorful punches. It’s why, when it was recently revealed that he added Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s latest music video collaboration to his lineup of films we were pretty surprised. And awestruck.

“Rain on Me,” is the latest Gaga X Ariana Grande collab to go viral and the first music video to be directed by Rodriguez.

Over the weekend, the second single from Gaga’s upcoming sixth studio album Chromatica dropped much to the delight of fans. The song, which visits the genres of dance-pop, disco, house, and electropop has been described by Gaga as a “celebration of tears” and has already received quite a bit of praise from users online. According to Rolling Stone, “In addition to Grande, the 16-song Chromatica will also feature contributions from Elton John and South Korean group Blackpink.”

Of course, over the weekend, fans could not get enough of the video.

Or the chemistry between the collaborators.

Check out the music video below.

A Fight Broke Out In A Florida Home Depot Parking Lot And You Can See The Coronavirus Spreading

A Fight Broke Out In A Florida Home Depot Parking Lot And You Can See The Coronavirus Spreading

There is one thing that will always deliver, even during a pandemic: fights. Even while the world is on lockdown and a virus is spreading, people can still find a way to get into a fight. This fight comes to you from a Home Depot in Florida.

A fight broke out at a Home Depot parking lot in Florida.

The fight took place at a Home Depot in Tampa and the fight itself is wild. Four men are in a melee and the more you watch it, the wilder it gets. First, you notice the wildly swinging paint cans. Paint is flying and you are all wondering how in the world the people hit with the paint cans are still standing. Then you realize that the pickup truck is in the splash zone. Next thing you know, one of the men is going after someone with a shovel. Yes. A shovel that you use to dig holes with. It truly is a wild ride and it has left the Internet wanting answers. Most of all, why?

If you come across it with no warning on Twitter, the video is a lot to process.

How did this fight start? Who threw the first punch? What is there to fight over in Home Depot? There are so many questions watching this fight. It can’t be possible that the best way for this fight to go off includes paint flying everywhere.

The guy with the shovel is the sleeper in this fight.

Everything is already so crazy that you aren’t sure what to take in first. Then, out of nowhere, a shovel rises straight into the air and all of your focus goes right to it. The man slams it down hard and it isn’t clear if he hit his intended target.

Some people, while not surprised, are still just done with Florida right now.

Florida has this reputation to always draw attention to itself and never for the right reasons. This fight in the time of Covid-19 is just the latest iteration of the Florida we have come to know. From politics to bizarre moments, Florida is a frontrunner in the race to be the wildest state.

On the other side, there are people who literally cannot wait until something like this comes out of Florida.

Social media is a crazy world. There are things happening on there that you would never believe would actually happen. Yet, social media is there to take the craziness of the world and serve it right up to you on a silver platter.
