Naya Rivera Says Showering Every Day 'Is A White People Thing'
Glee star provokes Twitterstorm with comment on live TV...
Naya Rivera has found herself the target of angry comments on Twitter after making a bizarre claim about "ethnics" on live TV.
The Glee actress declared that having a shower every day is "a white people thing" as she made her appearance on The View.
Moderator Nicolle Wallace responded with a nervous giggle and fellow panel member Rosie O'Donnell pointed to a shocked audience member who protested that she showered each day.
But Rivera was sticking to her guns and explained: "My mom is half black, half Puerto Rican. She showers every day so I can say this.
"But I'm now married to a white man. And he showers a lot, like two, three times a day."
Despite a barrage of criticism from angry Twitterers, she was unrepentant and later tweeted: "When you get out of the shower today, get a sense of humor. Love ya!"
When you get out of the shower today, get a sense of humor. Love ya!
