Naya Rivera Calls Showering Every Day a 'White People Thing'

During the show, Naya admitted that she tends to shower once every three days and said it was an “ethnic” thing. Afterwards, she got some backlash on Twitter for her comments.

“I feel like showering more than once a day or every day is such a white people thing,” Naya said on the show. “I can say that I am now married to a white man [Ryan Dorsey], and he showers a lot. Like, a lot — two, three times a day. I’m like, ‘What are you doing?’ A study says… a dermatologist says you are only supposed to shower once or twice every three days, so I’m right on the mark.”

“When you get out of the shower today, get a sense of humor. Love ya!” Naya tweeted after the show.

    I’m White and not offended by this at all. Also, I think her Twitter retort is hilarious. I don’t shower every day, but on days when I do I often do a bath soak first to release toxins and prepare my skin for scrubbing. I am very clean. Even showering every day won’t make you clean. SCRUBBING dead skin cells off of you is what makes you truly clean.

    i love how everybody shower like 10 times a day now -_-… you people need to grow up. It pretty reasonable shower two times every three days

    “Showering everyday is a white people’s thing” What an asshole, I’m so
    tired of these stupid americans wanting to be “ethnical”. The fact is
    places like Europe where is really cold is where people less take
    showers, most of
    its population are white!!! And there was a research that found out that
    the two countries where people shower the most are Mexico and Brazil,
    so actually the latinos do take shower a lot, if she actually was so
    latina like she likes to pretend she is she would know (Come on people
    this chick was born and raised in Los Angeles, just because she looks
    latina doesn’t mean she is or that she can “insult” white people) sorry
    for my english btw, I’m a person who takes showers every day (brazilian)

  • carrie

    The racist persons love to say that the no- whites are dirty.Thank Naya to continue the myth and I hope you have a good deodorant .
    A daily or more shower is not a white or ethnic idea .

  • Truman’s Mom

    I think showering only every three days is just dirty. God knows how many UTIs and assorted infections she has had as a result. Nasty.

  • chucky357

    Shower every day. I work with food and people and my job requires it but even if I had a different job I would still do it. I feel so much better after a shower and it helps to get my day started the right way. When I don’t take a shower in the morning I just feel scuzzy all day.

  • Aaron Williams

  • Gabe

    How does this woman even pretend to know how often ethnic people shower, she doesn’t . The fact is she knows nothing about how other people shower only that she doesn’t shower every day which is disgusting in my view

  • b324

    I do wonder why people shower so much. Twice a day? How dirty are you? lol. But I don’t doubt that our culture and family history influence our lives, but I wonder, is it ONLY a white thing or could it also be an American thing?

    Lots of people have different showering habits for differing reasons, and I don’t doubt culture plays a part but I think we as Americans are so obsessed with cleanliness. We have water so readily available, I think it’s just the thing to do. Although when you are poor and have to pay for water, you might not shower daily, no matter your skin color.

    I grew up with my mom but we lived with my grandparents and their entire life was dictated by growing up in the depression and being a soldier in WW2. Don’t open the fridge for too long (you know, standing in front of the fridge for 5 second was just tooooo long), walk in the house faster because you’re letting all the bought air out and don’t take long showers or shower so often. I would take 30-40 min. showers growing up because it was just what I liked and every time I showered, it was a fight because I was using too much water, using too many towels, blah blah and every time they would reference their growing up, or how grandpa only used a bucket and washcloth during the war, so why couldn’t I take shorter showers or I should only use one towel for 2 weeks.

  • kellyf

    I gotta say, I’m really ok with being counted among a group of people that “showers regularly”. Sign me up for the ol’ “always clean” stereotype.

  • Living in a box

    Hygiene is really important. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfbQuU7vI4Y

  • No “chocha sucia”

    I’m Puerto Rican and “ethnic” and I take multiple showers everyday. If you go to work, take care of people and are active much of the day it’s good hygiene. Naya Rivera clearly likes to have a “chocha sucia” ( in Spanish terms a dirty vagina)

  • jane

    some people ride the bus to school/work, or the train, or walk long distances to work/school in warm climates (ie California) so they have to shower twice a day for sweat reasons, i assume. lots of reasons to shower twice daily and lots of reasons to shower twice weekly. who really cares.

  • Victoria Elizabeth

    She tried to be funny and instead she sounds like a complete ignorant idiot.

    WHy is this so funny to me?

  • Mass

    They need to lighten up. I meant it figuratively so don’t call me racist. I know how touchy that topic is, evidently by this.

  • johnny

    She’s right you guys. showering everyday is totally a white person thing.

  • 55vineyard

    If you are retired like I am you can get by with a shower and shampoo every other day but if you have a job and work with others then yes you need to take a shower every day.
    I am not sure who she is, but it sounds like she has the luxury to do things when she wants and does not have to interact except on her terms.

    When water restrictions are in force, three minute showers isn’t much fun. Stand in a basin so you can re-use the water in the garden !

  • Legendary Trolly

    The stereotype is that blacks are cleaner. Whites lather in soap and rinse it off. Some of them use that ol bumazzz liquid soap. Blacks use a wash cloth and scrub. I personally use one of those plastic sponge thingies and I scrub. It feels like sand paper when you shower the right way. You rub the bar of soap on ya body and rinse it off, u is a dirty sob lol

    I don’t think I want to be downwind of this smelly chick.

  • Ana Elisa Amore
