Selena Gomez did NOT “show off her Mexican parents to prove she’s actually a Latina,” despite a report. Gossip Cop can debunk the story.

MediaTakeOut writes, “Pop singer Selena Gomez came under FIRE this weekend when she made a comment that many believed was AGAINST Black Lives Matter. People were suggesting that Selena didn’t understand the problem of police violence against Black and Latinos. Well Selena decided to show folks how MUCH she knows about it.”

According to the webloid, Gomez “released pics of her family, showing that she grew up in a LATINO family.” But where did she supposedly “release” them? The site never says. And that’s because Gomez didn’t “show off” anything.

She never posted the photos in question this week to “prove she’s a Latina.” In fact, the pictures MediaFakeOut has accompanying its post are snapshots that have been on the Internet for years. All it takes is a simple Google search to find them, which Gossip Cop suspects is what really happened here.

Gomez’s heritage is well-known, and she doesn’t need to “prove” her background to anyone regardless. And it’s worth noting this is the second time MediaTakeOut has been caught fudging a story on the singer-actress in recent weeks. Late last month, the outlet outrageously said she had her “boobs out” in a fan photo when her chest was actually fully clothed.
