Cyn Santana Has Some Explaining To Do After Her Past Comments About Black Men And Latina Women Resurface

They rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.

Published January 9, 2019

Cyn Santana has become a social media favorite among fans of the Love & Hip Hop franchise, with many heralding her as one of the most relatably "normal" figures from the bunch.

However, the reality starlet recently found herself on the bad side of a major group of the show's viewers after a past interview resurfaced showing her sharing her dating preferences while explaining why Black men, in her eyes, prefer dating Latinas over Black women.

Santana, who is currently engaged to Joe Budden, was recently put on blast after a 2016 clip from Angela Yee's Lip Service podcast hit the internet.

In the interview, she explained that she preferred dating Black men because they put Spanish women on a pedestal, as opposed to Black women.

"I just like Black guys and Spanish girls," she said. "Y'all can keep the Puerto Rican men, I'm good. I do Black guys all day, sorry. I did the Spanish thing... doesn't work out for me. I think they're too emotional."

Things got uncomfortably problematic when she expounded on her preference for Black men, in turn, comparing Latinas to Black women in a manner that many claimed saw her diminish the latter.

"Black guys cater to us Spanish girls, especially," she continued. "Like, they... you know what, let me not get into it. Black girls gonna take it personal. They gonna be like, 'Uhh uhh!' Anyway, I'm done with the papis."

Listen to her remarks at the 16:50 mark, below:

  1. As the interview began making its rounds, and reactions to her words from Black women began pouring in, Cyn took to Twitter to defend herself, pointing out that the "old a*s interview" saw her articulate herself in a poor manner:

  2. In that same breath, she went on to declare that she will now no longer use the N-word and will reaffirmed that she loves Black women:

  3. Ending the series of tweets, she stressed that she never intended on hurting anyone through her comments:

  4. Her apology was not adequate for many, however, who took to Twitter to share why they found her words disgusting.
