She really did try to speak Spanish, though.
Kylie Jenner recently shared videos on Snapchat of herself speaking Spanish and dancing salsa… or bachata… Well, dancing to Spanish-language music. The model and fashion designer was accompanied by her makeup artist, Ariel Tejada, who clearly knows how to dance. It should be said that Jenner does get credit for trying to spice up her dancing skills. She showed that she can move and shake like anybody else but that didn’t keep people from having very strong opinions about it.
She was immediately dragged on Twitter for her Snapchat videos.
Kylie Jenner dancing salsa in her snaps and speaking Spanish is hilarious. Nice try but you'll never be Latina baby girl

And some people were happy to see that they might actually be better than Jenner at some things.

“At least I dance salsa better than Kylie Jenner,” wrote @gabrielamurga.
The whole thing felt like a comedy bit to some.
Kylie Jenner trying to dance salsa is probably the funniest thing I've seen today.

Though she did get some offers for free lessons on dancing salsa.
Hey @KylieJenner wanna learn how to dance cumbia and salsa, come on down to Houston and we'll show ya how it's done
— Marcus Martinez (@texanfan3285) April 25, 2017
No word yet on whether or not she’ll spend time in Houston to get the steps right.
But, it wasn’t all negativity. Some people gave her credit for learning.

It’s better to try and fail than to never try and wonder what if.
There was even an invite to a Latinx family gathering that we all know is bound to be lit.

Seriously, Kylie. If you don’t take them up on the offer of crashing a Latinx family reunion, we’ll take the invite.
