Naya Rivera thinks showering every day is a ”white people thing.” The Glee star believes ”white people” take a shower ”a lot more than ethnics” after noticing her husband Ryan Dorsey – whom she married in July last year – loves to clean his whole body under water on a regular basis, while she only does so once or twice every three days.
During a conversation about cleanliness on talk show The View yesterday, she said: ”I think that white people shower a lot more than ethnics. I feel like showering more than once a day or every day is such a white people thing.” Some in the studio audience were left shocked by Naya’s comments and co-host Rosie O’Donnell then said: ”There’s an African-American woman in a yellow shirt who is about to have a heart attack.”
Naya then turned her body in the direction of the woman and clarified her comments. She said: ”My mom is half-black, half-Puerto Rican. She showers every day, so I can say this. But I can say I’m now married to a white man and he showers a lot. A lot. Like two, three times a day. I’m like, ‘What are you doing?’ A dermatologist says you’re only supposed to shower once or twice every three days so I’m right on the mark. If you bird bath everything important gets cleaned, you don’t need a dunking.”
Following the episode, some Twitter users hit out at the 28-year-old beauty’s comments. _Veise: wrote: ”I’ma tell you now, Naya Rivera is incorrect. She is wrong. Ethnic folk do not shower less than White people.” LovesModChic tweeted: ”I’m still not over Naya Rivera’s renk batty self saying that ”ethnic” people don’t shower daily because SHE showers every 3 days, girl what?” However, Naya brushed off the criticism by tweeting: ”When you get out of the shower today, get a sense of humor. Love ya! (sic)”
