Easily offended social justice warriors won’t give a girl a break.
Here the Mexican has given up her siesta time in order to delete “offensive” jokes from her web pages and she gets no credit for her energy and her effort to cleanse that meanness off the Internet.
Imagine if a white woman had written what Melissa wrote.
When Saturday Night Live announced that it was hiring its first ever Latina cast member last week, it was landmark moment in the history of the show.
Mexican-American comedian Melissa Villaseñor, 28, is part of a minority that is sorely represented when it comes to the likes of mainstream comedy.
Yet her recruiting already has dark clouds swirling overhead after a writer for Grist, Aura Bogado tweeted that Villaseñor had quickly gone through her entire Twitter history to delete more than 2,000 tweets over the course of a week.
‘I’m excited about the first latina on SNL but not gonna lie: deleting 2K tweets in 5 days is… odd.’ Bogado posted on Twitter.
Bogado went further and managed to reveal that some of Villaseñor’s postings consisted of racist material, primarily against blacks and Asians.
In one tweet Villaseñor said she was afraid to date black men.
‘Coworker at forever 21 dates black guys and she said she will set me up on a blind date for valentines, I said yes but I’m scared.’
In another, she wrote about an ‘ugly,’ ‘bossy black lady’ at her job.
That tweet from more than six years ago read: ‘A bossy black lady at my temp job right now looks exactly like steve erkel. Ugly’.
‘Jolly black people are the best! Just laughed with one right now,’ Villaseñor also tweeted in November 2011.
Others have also managed to take screenshots of the comedian’s offensive rantings, yet SNL and Villaseñor have so far refused to make any official comment or apology.
Good grief. The perfectly rational fear of dating Google men is racist now! Give me a break.
So when Melissa truthfully criticizes her own people, is that racist? Apparently so, according to the new normal.
Melissa either doesn’t find white men interesting enough to mock or she likes white men. Either way, if she had Tweeted anti-white male jokes, she’d be home free.
The social justice warriors don’t consider that racist.
