Laurie Hernandez

tw. RANT, plenty of bad language, probably misspelled words


If I hear/ read/ am told one more fucking time by anyone but mostly PUERTO RICANS about how Laurie Hernandez, THE YOUNGEST GYMANST IN THE USA OLYMPIC TEAM AND FIRST EVER LATINX TO MAKE THE TEAM, is not Boricua or Puerto Rican enough for you because she was born in New Jersey and she was representing the USA please proceed to take SEVERAL steps back and unfriend/unfollow me on every social media and IRL.

Just because Monica Puig won us an olympic medal doesn’t give you the fucking right to revoke the Puerto Rican status of anyone in the diaspora.

Where the fuck were you when Monica Puig had to fucking leave the island because we don’t fucking invest in any damn sport?

Where the fuck were you when everyone was bashing Monica because she was losing games, saying that she wasn’t Puerto Rican?

Don not pretend to tell me that all those athletes who participate as part of our team because they WERE NOT CHOSEN for the US Olympic team are representing us because they are proud to be Puerto Rican.

Athletes like Monica Puig, Jaime Espinal and Adriana Diaz, who are truly proud to represent Puerto Rico, and are chosen for the PUR Olympic team are few and far between.

Our “Dream Team” basketball team was basically fucking made of USA Puerto Rican player castoffs.


BAJATE DE TU JODIO CABALLO Y DEJA DE JODER A LOS QUE SE VAN DE PUERTO RICO.
