The Hoops, Cleavage and Exaggerated Accent. Was Becky G’s Role on “Empire” Too Stereotypical Latina?
Literally EVERYONE was counting down the days for Becky G’s episode to air on Empire.

Because who doesn’t love Becky G and who doesn’t love Empire?
The hype was mad real.
Because Becky G’s such an amazing performer on stage, expectations were high.

She’s like a mini J.Lo.
But TBH, the episode kinda had us like…

Her character, Valentina Galindo, is an aspiring singer who is willing to do anything to make it big time.
How many times have we seen Latinas using their sexuality to get to a better place? Ugh.
Yes, she’s that cliché, token Latina character who has sassy comments, hoop earrings, long hair and a lot of cleavage.
And she does. Things get steamy?.
She’s completely naked in a hot tub making out with Hakeem ?.
But, wait… She’s barely 18.
And those naked make outs make us cringe since we love her like our baby cousin ?.
It gets more disturbing when you hear her speak because her baby voice reminds us she’s super young.

Yes, it’s like that.
And can we talk about that outfit? Becky G we love you, but the Jenny from the Block look isn’t your best.
Basically, all of this is too much for us to handle?.
We know it’s just a character, but THIS is more like it.
