Netflix Finally Released The ‘Gentefied’ Trailer And The Show Looks Like An Instant Hit

Netflix Finally Released The ‘Gentefied’ Trailer And The Show Looks Like An Instant Hit

We have been waiting for a look at “Gentefied” since we first heard that the project was in the works. Now, after so much waiting, we finally know what the show we’ve been waiting for is going to look like. Here is the trailer for the upcoming and highly anticipated “Gentefied.”

The trailer for “Gentefied” is here and it looks like one of the most authentic representations of East LA life.

It all centers around a family-owned restaurant in Boyle Heights. Like most people in Boyle Heights, the restaurant is in jeopardy because of the rising scourge of gentrification. To fight back, a community unites to push back against the rising threat of gentrification.

A lot of people are excited but many are still concerned that Netflix will cancel the show like “One Day At A Time.”

Who can forget the day Netflix announced that they were cutting a very culturally relevant and beloved show? The growing outcry from fans around the world eventually led to “One Day At A Time” being saved by Pop TV. Thankfully there was one network that understood the importance of the show.

Legit, people are really concerned that Netflix will give us a little bit of representation only to take it away again.

It’s hard to trust people in this world, especially when they have proven they will take beloved things away. We still aren’t over the sudden and never-fully-explained cancelation of “One Day At A Time.” They literally left Lydia stranded in Cuba…

Yet, people are still here to support the show because representation matters and we need more of it.

Our community is often overlooked by Hollywood. In fact, studies about Latino representation in front of and behind the camera shows an overwhelming underrepresentation of our community. “Gentefied” is bringing a clearer look into our community and a fight to protect the community against rampant gentrification.

Check out “Gentefied” coming to a Netflix account near you Feb. 21.

Make sure you have your friends log in information up to date so you don’t miss this.

Aaron Hernandez’s Fiancée Opens Up About Netflix’s Speculation Over The Football Player’s Sexuality

“Killer Inside: The Mind Of Aaron Hernandez” is a new Netflix docu-series that explores the life of late football player Aaron Hernandez. The docu-series has sparked a lot of controversy over how the director explored Hernandez’s sexuality. Now, his family members are finally speaking out.

Aaron Hernandez’s brother spoke with Dr. Oz about the documentary highlighting his brother’s brain injuries.

Jonathan Hernandez was asked to help with the Netflix docu-series but turned down the offer because he didn’t feel right about it. However, he does think some part of the docu-series are important.

“I think there’s so much tragedy within this and things that can be gained for other people’s benefit that the dollar amount was the least significant thing,” Jonathan told Dr. Oz. “It’s more so what was at hand and what can we collectively do so someone who is growing up isn’t in this situation in the near future or down the road.”

Aaron’s fiancée also opened up about the docu-series and the tragedy surrounding Aaron.

Shayanna Jenkins also confirms that Netflix approached her for the docu-series and offered her compensation but she didn’t want to participate. Instead, she wanted to keep moving forward with her life.

“If he did feel that way or if he felt the urge, I wish that I — I was told,” Jenkins told ABC. “And I wish that he — you know, he would’ve told me ’cause I wouldn’t — I would not have loved him any differently. I would have understood. It’s not shameful and I don’t think anybody should be ashamed of who they are inside, regardless of who they love. I think it’s a beautiful thing, I just wish I was able to tell him that.”

Fans of Aaron are upset with the docu-series and how they handled themselves in the making of the show.

A lot of the show talks about Aaron’s perceived sexuality and how it factored into his crimes. The docu-series has been criticized for bringing up a very sensitive subject when Aaron is not around to defend himself.

The obsession with his sexuality is really upsetting people.

There is nothing wrong with someone’s sexuality. However, to attach a sexuality to a person who is dead is a low blow.

Out of all the noise surrounding Aaron, one person is being praised for their resilience.
