Whoopi Goldberg Sort Of Said Charo Was Dead And People On Social Media Went Nuts

Spanish-born flamenco guitarist Charo has been captivating the world with her brilliant skills on the guitar and quirky persona for decades. For those of us in the Latinx community, however, she has long stood as an icon we hold dear and even as our own. The entertainer — born María del Rosario Pilar Martínez Molina Baeza — is more than an act of yesteryear, but rather a representation of what it means to be a woman that keeps up with the hustle. From appearing on countless of talk shows, to acting on the big and small screen, Charo’s career is an endless inspiration to ambitious Spanish speakers and Latinas alike, which is why when confusion about whether she was alive or dead sent many Latinas on Twitter into a massive search online that just about broke the internet.

That is all to say that despite years of making appearances on talk and variety shows, Charo’s most recent mention on The View sparked a particular roller coaster of emotion.

During last Friday’s episode of “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg mentioned Charo in a way that sent Twitter into a frenzy.

In a moment meant to recognize the deaths of influential celebrities and artists in entertainment that had passed away that week, “The View” host Whoopie Goldberg mentioned the death of actress Kim Porter and screenwriter William Goldman. She also mentioned guitar virtuoso Roy Clark who passed away on Nov. 15. It’s important to note, that at the top of the segment, Goldberg said she was mentioning three people of note, so the conversation would have normally ended there but instead, she went onto mention Charo. “She was known for being sort of a crazy blonde who was a guitar virtuoso,” Goldberg said. “That was what she was known for.”

It didn’t take long for viewers to quickly pick up on the host’s mention of Charo in the past tense.

Cue everyone Googling the life out of Charo’s name.

Wikipedia HQ must have been on fire trying to confirm this.

Like if Wikipedia doesn’t say Charo is dead, then it cannot be true. Can it?

People on social media quickly realized that Charo was very much alive, even though Whoopie oddly brought up her name.

Seems like Whoopi must have been on a Charo Spotify kick of some sort before the show and just wanted to bring her up?

But seriously, careful of those tenses girl.

We also Googled “Charo and Roy Clark” just to see why Whoopi would link these two guitar players and the only thing we could find was a picture of the two together at some party. Clark may have been a writer of one of Charo’s signature songs??

Fortunately Charo herself confirmed for the world she was alive and well.

Which TBH is a big relief since we’re still crossing our fingers hoping she’ll make another “Jane The Virgin” appearance this season.

And BTW not only is she alive, but she’s still doing the Cuchi Cuchi dance!

Because who could ever replace this woman?!

Check out the moment Whoopi suggested Charo was dead below.

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

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!

Stay grateful you did not grow up in the era of Snapchat/ Instagram/ Facebook kids because you can delete but your recorded actions can still come back to bite. Cardi B knows the story. While the Afro-Latina queen of Trap isn’ making any apologies, the latest video to be dug up from her past is requiring her to give some answers.

Video of the singer, recalling a time in her life in which she felt forced to drug and rob men while seducing them has resurfaced.

Over the weekend, video of the “Money” rapper recalling how she used to drug and rob men resurfaced.

The video, which was recorded during an Instagram live broadcast, sees Cardi as she goes on a tearful verbal tirade about her past. This after, someone apparently questioned her success and accused her of not “putting in no fucking work.”

“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.
