Glee Star: 'White People Shower A Lot More Than Ethnics'

**UPDATE** On Wednesday, Naya Rivera appeared on The View and apologized for her comments. 

On Tuesday, Glee star Naya Rivera made a guest appearance on ABC’s The View and made some unusual comments about “white people" and their bathing habits. 

Speaking in response to co-host Nicolle Wallace saying that because she has dogs and a baby she has to shower three times a day, the Glee actress proclaimed that “white people shower a lot more than ethnics.” 

Rivera, who herself is part Puerto Rican and African American, continued to argue that “showering once a day, or everyday, is such a white people thing.” While Rivera’s comments were certainly made in a joking manner, one wonders if the entire audience would have laughed if Nicolle Wallace, who is white, claimed that “ethnics” shower less than white people.
