Glee actress, Naya Rivera, 28, appeared as a guest co-host on The View yesterday and decided to make a very dumb comment that dealt with race and hygiene.

Rivera, who is half Black, half Puerto Rican — secretly married Ryan Dorsey last year — dished to the audience that her husband showers three times more than she does.

Via E Online:

After moderator Nicolle Wallace defended the fact that she showers three times a day (pre- and post-show, plus once before bed), the Fox beauty chimed in with a headline-making hypothesis.

“I think that white people shower a lot more than ethnic,” Rivera said as Wallace couldn’t help but burst out into a fit of giggles. ” I feel like showering more than once a day or every day is such a white people thing.”

After her Rivera made her comments, The View’s Rosie O’Donnell asked one of the shocked African-American women in the audience, who informed everyone know that she was a “frequent showerer.”

“My mom is half Black, half Puerto Rican. She showers every day, so I can say this. But I’m now married to a white man.” And he showers a lot, like two, three times a day. “I’m like, ‘What are you doing?'” she added with a laugh, mocking her hubby’s frequent habit.

Naya responded on Twitter to the controversy:

When you get out of the shower today, get a sense of humor. Love ya!

    I might have understood wash their hair over wash their a.s – eventhough I probably wash my hair too much because it’s easier to manage fresh out of the shower.

    Showering multiple times a day isn’t as much about cleanliness as it is more a sign of neurotic behavior. Besides, washing hands after eating or using the bathroom is what truly matters in keeping germs at bay.

    according to Merriam-Webster dictionary, the term ethnic is defined as 1: heathen.
    2: of or relating to large groups of people classed according to common racial, national, tribal, religious, linguistic, or cultural origin or background (ethnic minorities) (ethnic enclaves)
    So, according to naya rivera, white folks shower as much as OR as little as OR the same as everybody else, including the heathen.

    Now we all know that is not true. lol

    Black people — especially black women — don’t wash our hair nearly as much as white women. So, I guess I’m not clear on why so many folks seem offended by this comment.
