JLo Is Under Fire For Referring To Herself As A “Black Girl From The Bronx” In New Song

Jennifer Lopez is being slammed for referring to herself as a “Black girl from the Bronx.”

In her new song with Colombian singer Maluma “Lonely,”  JLo sings the Spanish lyrics “Yo siempre sere tu Negrita del Bronx.”

In English the line translates to, “I’ll always be your Black girl from the Bronx”.

Critics took to Twitter to bash JLo, who is Puerto Rican with a light complexion.

“Morenita/negrita” are always towards women who are actually of dark complexion. J-Lo is white as fu*k. I don’t get why she would say that,” one person said on Twitter.

Some tried to defend Jenny from the block, saying that “negrita” was a term on endearment.

This scandal reminded some people about JLo’s 2001 song “I’m Real” with Ja Rule, where she said the N-word.
