Here we go, again.
In today's edition of "everybody wants to be Black until it's time to be Black," we have a Love & Hip Hop: Miami cast member who believes that, despite her not being of African descent, her constant use of the N-word is warranted. Her sole reasoning for her spirited entitlement: she grew up in the hood.
On the most recent episode of the VH1 reality series, Florida native Veronica Vega, who is the product of Cuban parents, explained that she believes her use of the racial slur is justified since she, like most African-Americans who she believes habitually use the word, struggled in her younger years and grew up without much monetary privilege.
Here's the thing, though — it doesn't work like that, and viewers wasted no time in enlightening her on that harsh reality.
See how Twitter reacted to Vega's lame attempt at defending her obvious ignorance, below:
