We LOVE you Ricky, but that's a sweeping generalization — no?
The four-decades-old singer Viva Glam spokesperson is a huge safe-sex advocate and, to honor World AIDS Day on Saturday, Ricky Martin will donate a whole bunch of dinero to MAC's AIDS Fund.
They've already raised a $270 mil so far, which is downright amazing!!
While we don't mean to undercut his philanthropic accomplishments, the accompanying message was awkward at best!!
He said one of the reasons he feels so passionately about pushing HIV/AIDS awareness is because "for us [Latinos], sex is a joke."
You want a joke for Latinos?!
How about… un hombre walks into a bar — he says, "¡Ay!"
We adore you, Ricky! And we're really appreciative of all the ah-mazing work you do in the community!
But surely not all Latinos are Livin' la Vida Loca when it comes to sex!!
