Gina Rodgriguez Defends Her 'People En Espanol' Cover

Gina Rodriguez is nothing but glamorous and beautiful on the cover of People en Espanol cover.

The 31-year-old Jane The Virgin actress shared the cover on her Instagram account with her fans, and was stunned when she got more hate than love about it.

“Gracias a @peopleenespanol por creer en mi viaje. Para poner la fe detrás de mi carrera y elevar los muchos latinos de trabajo y de éxito duras en este país . Por favor recoger la copia en unos dias!! Thank you to @peopleenespanol for believing in my journey. For putting faith behind my career and uplifting the many hard working and success Latinos in this country. Pick up for copy in just a few days!!!!” Gina initially wrote.

She later followed it up with, “You know what saddens my heart, is when you try and celebrate an accomplishment with those that have helped you achieve it and no matter what, someone, anyone, has something negative to say. Whether it was from the way my toes curled under to the way I typed my spanish. We desire to project our own insecurities and hatred on another. When did we decide social media was for hating, for putting others down rather than lifting them up. I refuse to participate in that kind of world. Before you write a comment today on anyone’s picture or anyone’s page ask yourself would you want others to say that about yourself? What am I getting out of being mean to another person I have never met? Yesterday I shared my joy for the cover of @peopleenespanol and I was blown away at the immediate hate projected on my page. My question to you today is this, do you know the power you have in this world and do you desire to use it for good? I do. #NoToKeyboardCourage.”

Gina is also pictured leaving a boxing class in New Orleans, La., on Friday morning (August 7).
