“Isn’t it wonderful… to be bilingual?” Apparently not.

Univision anchor María Elena Salinas recently gave a commencement speech at California State University, Fullerton’s College of Communications. Salinas, one of the most recognized faces of Spanish-language media, was addressing students at a college with a large Latino population, which probably explains why she felt comfortable delivering a small portion of her speech in Spanish. Boy was she wrong.

In the video above, you can hear some of the graduates booing the Peabody Award-winning journalist when she mentions Donald Trump in a less than flattering manner. The boos continued when Salinas started doling out life knowledge en español. At one point, you can clearly hear a young lady scream, “Get off the stage!”

Some graduates took to Twitter to condemn their fellow students.

But others defended their actions by claiming reverse racism, which lol.

Family And Dog Mourn The Tragic Death Of Young Latino Californian

Abraham Martinez of Ontario, Calif., was only 21 years old when he died in a tragic car accident. As the family mourned the passing of a young man, one member of the family took the loss exceptionally hard: their dog Jax. The German Shepherd was Abraham’s closest and most loyal companion. Now that Abraham is gone, Jax seems lost, confused and very sad.

Abraham was in a parking lot when he was rear-ended, sending him into traffic. His car was struck again by a truck, and he was ejected from the vehicle.

Family and friends have been grappling to come to terms with the loss.

“It is still something we can’t understand and find it so hard to accept,” Abraham’s sister, Alexandra Martinez, told Inside Edition. “We are trying to take everyday minute by minute because that’s all we can do right now.”

But it was his buddy Jax who broke the Internet’s heart when this photo surfaced.

Jax, a 1-year-old German Shepherd, hasn’t been himself since the tragic and sudden death of his owner, Abraham.

When Jax joined the Martinez family as a 6-week-old puppy, the two were inseparable.

“Jax would sleep on top of my brother’s head every night until he got too big and took up the entire bed instead,” Alexandra told Buzzfeed News. “Jax would stay in the front yard with my brother while he washed his car, would sit next to him on the couch, and wouldn’t sit still until my brother and I were in the house.”
