13 Hilarious Posts Your Tías Have Published On Facebook

Tías are very much mamás alcahuetas: They provide plenty of loving and (for the most part) skip all the rules and regaños. Whether they’re cheering for us or being cluelessly cute, tías are the only relatives we’re actually OK to have as Facebook friends because…


They believe every photoshopped image is real.


They believe in this, but not global warming? While you’re at it let’s post about the tooth fairy, Santa and el chupacabras.


They throw the best shade.


We got our shade skills from them, but let’s be real – they’re not the best at being subtle. Might as well tag them.


They share the best health advice.


They’ll share the best fitness and health tips, but you’ll never see them work out. Hey, it’s the thought that counts.


They always comment on how pretty you look on your pictures.

They post inspirational tips to keep you going.


Queen’s of quote of the day.


And bible verses that’ll guide your path.


Number of bible verses posted a day: 27.

Number of times attended church: 0

(Christmas doesn’t count.)


They have the most fire memes.


Who is this woman? And the Photoshop skills are out of this world. It’s like they have a degree in design. Pixar, give my tías a call.


They tag themselves to make sure they don’t miss any of their posts.


Sometimes their favorite person to shoutout is themselves. Secretly, they’re just trying to get themselves more notifications.


They stay up with current events just like you. Like the Super Bowl.


So many questions.

1. What kind of sport is the superball?
2. Who is this amazing photographer? I’m trying to schedule someone for a forehead shoot.
3. When was the last time those flowers were watered? Because we’re highly concerned.


They share news from everywhere.

And take every quiz. Just because.


To them, this is the most reliable source.


You never have to wonder what they’re up to.

 


Just to be clear… how’s the weather where you’re at?


And every day for them is a photo shoot.


While you’re taking, deleting, editing, going through seven filters just to upload one selfie, your tía just uploaded a Vogue-worthy photo shoot. Because when you’re fabulous, the world should see every photo you take.

But that’s why we love all our tías ❤️.

Selena Gomez Is Holding Tech And Social Media Accountable After Trump Mob Shuts Down Congress

Selena Gomez Is Holding Tech And Social Media Accountable After Trump Mob Shuts Down Congress

A pro-Trump mob stormed Capitol Hill Jan. 6 following months of President Donald Trump and his allies attacking the 2020 elections. Selena Gomez, like most Americans horrified by the attack, spoke out on social media about what happened. She made it clear that part of this falls on tech companies and social media companies.

Selena Gomez called out social media and tech companies for enabling hateful rhetoric.

President Donald Trump and his supporters have used social media to spread misinformation since he was elected in 2016. Americans have watched as President Trump used Twitter to spread falsehoods and conspiracy theories. There have been so many debunked claims that President Trump and his allies have spread with no consequence.

Recently, Twitter started to flag some of President Trump’s tweets as disputed or misleading. It was the first time a social media platform did something that checked President Trump and his rhetoric.

People quickly came to Gomez’s side to uplift her statement.

President Trump has a long history of hateful and dangerous rhetoric on social media. He has misled her supporters with false statements and has incited violence. The president has defended white supremacists on multiple occasions and even retweeted a video of a man shouting white power.

Social media platforms are finally muzzling President Trump with bans and suspensions.

Twitter has put the president on a temporary suspension after he incited the crowd that breached Capitol Hill. Meanwhile, Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg enhanced the original 24-hour ban to a indefinite ban that will last at least until President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. However, people think it is a little too late for these actions.

“Disinformation and extremism researchers have for years pointed to broader network-based exploitation of these platforms,” Sen. Mark R. Warner, D-Va., said in a statement. “As I have continually said, these platforms have served as core organizing infrastructure for violent, far right groups and militia movements for several years now – helping them to recruit, organize, coordinate and in many cases (particularly with respect to YouTube) generate profits from their violent, extremist content.”

What happened Jan. 6 at the nation’s Capitol was avoidable, but it’s clear who incited this violence.

Congress has officially certified President-elect Biden’s win. What should have been a quick process to certify an election turned into a horrifying scene. It is a day that will always define President Trump’s legacy.

Cardi B Has a New Facebook Show With the Weirdest Premise

Cardi B Has a New Facebook Show With the Weirdest Premise

You know what they say: the devil works hard, but Cardi B works harder. After all, there’s nothing in this world she likes more than checks.

The rap superstar is returning to reality TV with a series in partnership with Facebook that is premiering today, December 17th on Facebook Watch.

You heard it here first, folks! Cardi B will be starring in a show called Cardi Tries in which the Grammy winner will try out activities that she’s not well-versed in.

According to the Cardi Tries promo, Belcalis Almánzar will be trying out out ballet, stunt car racing, basketball, making sushi, making wigs, ranching, teaching kindergarten…the list goes on. And of course, the best part about seeing her “try out” everything will be her hilarious reactions. Say what you want about Cardi, but the girl is hilarious.

The premiere episode features Cardi trying out ballet dancing.

Legendary choreographer Debbie Allen asks her if she’s done ballet before, to which she replies “I used to be a stripper.” We then see her doing ballet, her long blue acrylic talons posed in front of her.

To make things more fun, Cardi will be joined on the show by special guests, like fellow Dominicana Michelle Rodriguez, legendary actress and choreographer Debbie Allen and Damian Lillard of the Portland Trailblazers.

Facebook Messenger as a part of the app’s new “Watch Together” feature.

Apparently, the “Watch Together” feature will allow Facebook users to watch the show together with other users in real time. Since COVID-19 has made “Watch Parties” a thing of the past, this new feature could definitely give people that sense of togetherness without actually, you know, being together. Viewers will be able to watch Cardi Tries over video calls on Instagram, Facebook Messenger, and Messenger Rooms.

This isn’t Cardi’s first foray into the reality TV space.

Many of Cardi’s fans were first introduced to her through Love & Hip Hop, where she stole every scene she was in with her infectious laugh and her catchy Cardi-isms (you know the ones).

Cardi also starred alongside Chance the Rapper and T.I. in the Netflix series Rhythm + Flow in which she judged contestants on their rap skills. It’s safe to say that audiences love to watch her do just about anything.

You can catch new episodes of Cardi Tries every Thursday at 12pm EST on Instagram video chat and Facebook messenger.
