Latinas have it tough. We’re meme-fied as “spicy” by the internet, constantly hyper-sexualized by Hollywood and make only 56 cents for every dollar earned by the average non-Latino white male. But, at least, we still have our sense of humor.
And when we want to share hilarious circumstances in 140 characters or less, we can find kindred spirits on Twitter with the often used #LatinaProblems hashtag. From avocado woes to Quince-styled weddings, there’s an endless treasure trove of funny gems by Latinas online.
Here are 23 tweets that prove some struggles can be hilariously real for Latinas.
