When you’re in the public eye, every word that comes out of your mouth counts and First Lady Jill Biden seems to be paying the price of just that.
Mrs. Biden was recently seen comparing Latinos to breakfast tacos while delivering a speech in San Antonio, Texas. But the news didn’t go down too well, especially with a few journalists who felt she was ridiculous and out of her mind.
The Hispanic journalist group was the first to rebuke her words, lashing at her for making a dumb comparison, not to mention how awfully offensive the statement turned out to be.
Mrs.Biden seemed to be busy praising the civil rights icon Raul Yzaguirre along the way but she seemed to have gotten a tad bit too carried away when praising Latinos for being unique and unlike many others.
Yzaguirre is believed to have led an advocacy organization that used to be known as the National Council of La Raza.And that was for a good 30 years.
The bizarre compliment was not taken well at all with many resorting to social media to bash the First Lady. Now, there are reports that she was forced to apologize for many ‘misinterpreting’ her comments and also how she didn’t mean to hurt the sentiments of so many people.
The comment was a part of the speech and it’s not clear if it was written as a part of the script or one that came out of Biden’s mouth during that time.
“Raul assisted so many in building this entire organization with the true understanding that the diversity of this community is as different as the bodegas of the Bronx and as beautiful as the blossoms seen in Miami.
Let’s not forget how unique it is as like the breakfast tacos we see here in San Antonio”- the First Lady uttered.
