Tweet of the Day: Naya Rivera calls showering daily a ‘white people thing’
How white can you get?

Don’t lather. Don’t rinse. Don’t repeat. Don’t even set foot in the shower, for Pete’s sake. I mean … it’s such a white thing.

The sentiment is not mine. It’s actress and singer Naya Rivera’s. She was co-hosting “The View” Monday when, according to CBS News, the star of “Glee” shared her views on personal hygiene:

I have to say I have a theory about showering, [which] is that I think that white people shower a lot more than ethnics. I feel like showering more than once a day or every day is such a white people thing.

Realizing that the observation wasn’t well received, she tried self-deprecation.

[My mom is half-black, half-Puerto Rican, and she] showers every day, so I can say this. But I can say that I am now married to a white man, and he showers a lot. Like, a lot — two, three times a day. I’m like, ‘What are you doing?’

That didn’t fly either, at least with fans on social media. Here are a few tweets courtesy of Inquisitr:

It’s just lucky she didn’t refer to showering or some other personal habit as a black or brown thing. That would have been racist.
