Lauren Jauregui Claps Back at Spanish Radio Station Who Doesn't Think She's Latin Enough

Lauren Jauregui didn’t hold back when a Spanish radio station named her as just one of the celebs identifying in the Latino community.

Here’s what the station wrote on their website: “Many point [their fingers] at Bella Thorne or Lauren Jauregui as examples of stars who have jumped ‘on the bandwagon’ of what is trending, which is the Latin market.”

“There are people who find that having a Latino relative doesn’t make you part of the community; that you are [a part of the community] when you were born in that country, you have defended your rights there and you may have even moved to the United States. Those who support this thought believe that if you weren’t born in the country, you can’t consider yourself Latina.”

In a series of Spanish tweets, the Fifth Harmony singer clapped back at the station.

“I feel Latina because I was born in a Latin family. I speak the language, I cook the food,” she wrote. “I have been part of the Latino community in Miami since I was born; I have always had them around me. Anyone could tell you that.”

Lauren adds, “I know that when they see me, they see me as a little white girl that you cannot imagine being Latina. but NOBODY can tell me what MY roots are.”

Preach it, Lauren!
