The Internet Came For Roselyn Sánchez For Hosting The Latin Grammys Weeks After Giving Birth And She Graciously Shut It Down

Are working women supposed to surrender to the limits society shoves onto them the minute they become moms? Roselyn Sánchez certainly doesn’t think so. The Puerto Rican actress recently came under fire from fans who criticized her for hosting the Latin Grammys just weeks after giving birth to her son, Dylan Gabriel.

In a post to her Instagram page, the “Devious Maids” star reminded social media that she’s got the whole “working mom” thing on lock, is a bit too busy for their opinions.

The whole thing started when Sánchez posted a photo of herself glamming and ramping up to host the Latin Grammy Awards.

Tons flooded her Twitter and Instagram with comments of how excited they were for her.

“I’m super happy you’re one of the presenters. Boricua Power,” wrote a fan.

Another celebrated Sánchez, saying, “Beautiful! You’re an inspiration! Arriba Boricua, and with a baby and everything!”

Still, some were quick to remind her that she’d been in the delivery room just two weeks before and told her to stay home.

“Niña, you just had the baby, stay relaxed at home,” one fan wrote to the actress.

It wasn’t long before Sánchez reacted to the comments with a video telling fans there’s no reason to worry.

I mean, just because she’s the mom of a newborn it doesn’t mean she has to stop the hustle.

Sánchez patiently took some time from rehearsals to explain to fans and critics that she and baby Dylan are totally fine, and she’s ready to host the show.

“I have read comments on my social media that show there are a lot of people worried. They tell me, ‘Roselyn, take care of yourself. You just had a baby and it’s dangerous. You have to rest for 40 days.’ You are absolutely right, but I already committed,” say says in the video.

“I’m here. I’m not 100 percent recovered, but I feel good. I promise you that I’m taking care of myself. The baby is at the hotel with his two nannies and he is calm. Everything is Okay, so don’t worry. We are going to do the show tomorrow. It’s going to come out great. I’m doing it with a lot of love for all my people in Puerto Rico. To represent my country, I’ll make the sacrifice. Pray for me. The show will be spectacular,” she continues.

In the lead up to the awards show, Sánchez has been flaunting her #workingmom skills and ability to get back in the saddle.

Before the show, Sánchez posted a photo of her nursing (because clearly anyone’s opinion about where/how she breastfeeds doesn’t phase her in the least bit).

“Today is going to be crazy amazing! Pero lo primero es primero… [but first things first] nursing baby Dylan to start my day right! #latingrammys #workingmom,” Sanches wrote in the post.

Sánchez’s response to critics is a reflection of the various expectations that tend to hold back so many of today’s working moms. In a world where things like the motherhood penalty and the fatherhood bonus are very much alive and well, Sánchez serves as a face representing millions of women dispelling the harmful patterns that prevent mothers from getting paid equally and moving forward in their careers. Gotta love a badass Latina who knows how to juggle many hats and keep up the good fight!

This Quietly Posted IMDB Page Could Mean ‘Coco 2’

To say our worlds were rocked when Pixar finally gave us a touching film about la cultura a few years ago would be the biggest understatement of the century. ‘Coco,’ the 2017 American 3D computer-animated fantasy starring Gael García Bernal and Benjamin Bratt filled our hearts and also brought us to tears. Still, as satisfying as the film was, there’s no doubt it left us craving more. And it looks like we might just get it.

An IMDB page for Coco 2 has been created and I’m sorry but I can’t stop freaking out!!

According to IMDB user anthandsoc-95189 who appears to have long had the inside scoop on upcoming films, ‘Coco 2: Return To the Land Of the Living’ is in the works! Some digging around has also revealed that another sight might have information on the plot and characters of the sequel film. Of course, this information has yet to be confirmed and might be purely a wish, but if it is we’ll dream big!

According to IMDB ‘Coco 2’ will take place 6 years after the first film

‘Coco’ / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

The IMDB page says “It’s been 6 years since the events happened for Miguel. But when Hector, Imelda, and his great grand-abuelos need Miguel’s help to come back to the Land of the Living because some mysterious sinister masked skeleton is haunting and rules their world with an iron fist and sword and hates music.”

Which means, if IMDB is correct, we haven’t seen the last of Mama Coco!

Sweet Coco could have a really big role in the new film!!

Of course, other sites have other insights into the could-be sequel…

Because of course everyone has an opinion!

According to Fandom.com ‘Coco 2’ will take place six years after the first film.

We’ll see Miguel’s family attempt to throw him a fiesta, but sadly Miguel, still upset about Mama Coco’s death, will be upset.

When Miguel meets a sophisticated, ghostly and well-bred skeletal spirit Miguel will attempt to return to The Land Of The Dead for a vacation.

Now that’s an insane idea for a spring break.

In this version of the sequel, Miguel will a dark black hole to go back to The Land Of The Dead, to see Papa Hector and Mamma Imelda.

Of course, Miguel will be astonished when he sees his old family members for another time and finally gets to see Mama Coco.

Soon enough, Miguel is racing against time, once again, to avoid being a skeleton.

But this time, Marcel might not be so bothered by the idea of living amongst the dead for forever.

Of course, all of this is speculative. Who knows if Pixar has plans for a sequel in the works, but as one fan points out this clip by Pixar on the DVD release has some great hints!

“I had to go ‘oh yeah, you wanna fuck me? Yeah yeah yeah let’s go to this hotel.’ And then I’d drug [expletivie] up and I’d rob them. That’s what I used to do.”

Users online were quick to comment.

“The fact that cardi b admitted to drugging and robbing men she would take back to a hotel for sex blows my mind,” wrote Twitter user @itsangelaa. “That’s not ‘keeping it real.’ that’s a crime.”

“I wonder what woulda happened if it were the other way round,” @BTSisthecauseo5 commented.

At the onset of the backlash, the rapper seemed to take the comments rather lightly.

The following day she also tweeted “IM THAT BITCH THEY LOVE TO HATE, IM THAT BITCH THEY HATE TO LOVE and I love it.”

On Tuesday, however, after users on Instagram and Twitter continued to simmer, she was forced to issue comment.
