Glee’s Naya Rivera has shocked viewers by claiming that showering “every day is a white people thing” during an interview on The View.
Not surprisingly, her controversial comments did *not* sit well with viewers and Twitter users, who took to social media to air their disgust.
Maybe she just prefers baths, alright?!
The, er, interesting topic came about after panel member Rosie O’Donnell explained she showers three or more times a day – before the show, after the show and before going to bed AT LEAST.
The 28-year-old actress was quick to disagree with Rosie, making moderator Nicolle Wallace laugh as she claimed: “I think that white people shower a lot more than ethnics.
“I feel like showering more than once a day or every day is such a white people thing.”
Rosie actually pointed out a member of the audience who was visibly shocked by Naya’s claims, but the actress continued on with her weird theory, adding: “My mom is half black, half Puerto Rican. She showers every day so I can say this.
“But I’m now married to a white man [Ryan Dorsey]. And he showers a lot, like two, three times a day. I’m like, ‘What are you doing?’”
Erm, making himself clean?
She went on to discuss a recent study in an attempt to prove that she was doing things the right way, discussing the findings that show that showering less is better. Or something.
She continued: “So the study says, a dermatologist says you are only supposed to shower once or twice every three days, so I’m right on the mark.”
Some Twitter users were less than impressed with the Glee star’s theory, with one user writing: “naya rivera really just say white people shower more than ethnic people, girl….don’t speak for us.”
Another wrote: “Naya Rivera said she only showers once every three days. Says it’s a white people thing to shower daily. Sorry, what?,” whilst another offended viewer commented: “When YOU tell the world YOU shower every 3 days that says more about YOU not us Naya Rivera; somethings are better left unsaid.”
One tweeted pondered: “How does Naya Rivera know how often I shower?”
We weren’t personally aware that skin colour had anything to do with anyone’s personal preference on how often someone decides to have a shower, but Naya’s theory is certainly, erm, interesting, right?
That’s one word for it anyway.
