Naya Rivera Apologises

January 15, 2015


Naya Rivera has apologised for saying she thinks showering every day is a "white people thing".

The 28-year-old singer caused controversy during an appearance on 'The View' on Tuesday (14.01.15) when she said she believes "white people" take a shower "a lot more than ethnics", but she has now said sorry if she offended anyone because it was only meant to be a "joke".

Speaking on the programme on Wednesday (15.01.15), she said: "It was supposed to be a joke. I apologise if anyone was offended.

"I said that I thought that showering multiple times in a day was such a white person thing.

"Yesterday we were talking about a study that says we are supposed to shower I guess once or twice every three days which I had an opinion on, it which was supposed to be a joke but apparently didn't go over so well.

"However, I'm very excited that it sparked a big conversation about how many times you should shower."

The 'Glee' star's comments did not go down well with a number of people on Twitter who took to the social networking site to insist they shower many times each week.

_Veise: wrote: "I'ma tell you now, Naya Rivera is incorrect. She is wrong. Ethnic folk do not shower less than White people. (sic)"

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? (sic)"

Naya said she thought white people must shower more because she only showers once or twice every three days, while her husband Ryan Dorsey - who she married in July last year - prefers to get clean under the water on a regular basis.

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."
