Gina Rodriguez Apologizes for N-Bomb Video

Gina Rodriguez apologizes for using N-word on Instagram Live

"Gina Rodriguez said don't worry guys I have the pass because I grew up on Lauryn Hill", another person wrote. Nearly immediately, the Puerto Rican actress was trending on Twitter, with users criticizing Rodriguez for being anti-Black.

The mea culpa didn't sway critics, \some of whom noted that Rodriguez has been in the spotlight before for her comments regarding race.

Gina has now returned to Instagram to issue a second apology.

In another incident previous year, she was criticized for her awkward misinterpretation of the wage gap in the television and movie industry during a roundtable with actresses Gabrielle Union, Emma Roberts and Ellen Pompeo.

Many people defended the actress, though, arguing that she was merely singing the lyrics to a song.

The interview sparked conversations and speculation about Rodriguez's seemingly critical views on empowerment of black people in the industry.

It wasn't the song choice that annoyed fans so much as the line she chose to sing.

This is not the first time the Jane the Virgin star has come under fire for undermining the Black community. She clearly says the N-word as part of the lyrics and then laughs to someone off camera. The video quickly spread like wildfire on social media.

Following updates on day 31 — GM strike
President Donald Trump's trade war with China and his tariffs on imported steel and aluminum have raised costs for auto companies. According to the union, until the UAW GM Council votes to approve the proposed tentative agreement , the strike will continue.

Similarly, Rodriguez has once again offered an unconvincing apology.

A few hours after the clip went up, Rodriguez deleted the video and posted a new one apologising to those offended, though she didn't specifically reference the slur.

Within the apology, Rodriguez mentioned she was sorry to anybody who was offended and justified the incident by saying she grew up loving the Fugees and singer Lauren Hill.

Gina Rodriguez took to her Instagram story on October 15 to officially apologize to followers she offended after using the N-word while singing along to a Fugees song in a previous Instagram story.

"If I have hurt you, I am sorry and I will always be sorry, but you have to know that, until you know my heart, there's no way that we can live off clickbait, you guys".

For many, the apology seemed insincere and condescending.

Just a few months later, Rodriguez hosted a Latina Power Lunch with America Ferrera, and posted pictures showing guests who the internet pointed out were mostly fair-skinned. "That is not taking ownership of a damn thing, admitting fault or caring", Twitter user That Dame Lana tweeted. "I'm aware that Afro-Latinos exists", added user Chantel Bell-Covington.
