In case you missed it, Gina Rodriguez said the n-word. Actually, it was more like she rapped the n-word. While, giving her best rendition of Fugees’ “Ready or Not,” the Jane the Virgin star got to the line, “Believe me, fronting ni**as give me heebie-jeebies,” and proceeded to say. every. word.

Of course, Twitter lit her a** up.
Being non-black and saying the n word earns you -7,462 points.
Sending out a fake apology on social media because you knew footage of you saying it would cause a reaction earns you an additional -13,482.7 points.

Why do non-black people act like it’s hard not to say the n word.
Literally just don’t say it.

And, of course, she apologized. But, instantly folks realized her apology was about as bad as her offense.

In Gina’s defensive, there are people pointing out the hypocrisy in her not being able to say the n-word, while folks like Cardi B and Fat Joe use it often in their rap lyrics.
